Basketball and Books

Started in 2014, this program helps our youth basketball players make the association between academics and athletics. 

In the Classroom

Our Varsity players go into Grand Ledge K-6 classrooms to read to the youth and talk to them about the importance of academics and athletics.

Free Books

During the Youth Basketball League season, Varsity players attend a practice to assist the volunteer coaches with drills. During this practice they will drop of a free basketball-related book to all youth basketball players and again discuss the importance of academics and athletics. They might even sign a couple autographs!
