Bristol Storms return to the Men’s National League in 2016-2017 Season was a great success including qualifying for the Playoffs. Building on this success Storm are planning their return in 2017-2018 season. The team are currently funded 100% by players to cover sports hall costs, officials, travel expenses etc. and I thought it would be a great opportunity to get the local community involved and supporting their local team. To register the team with England Basketball its costs £300 so we are calling upon friends, families, local basketball players and the community to help raise this fee.
50 Free-Throw Challenge
To help raise the money I (Luke Fazackerley) have set the challenge of making 50 successful free throws in a row. (My current best is 36). The free throws must be made in succession on a regulation hoop and markings and if a free throw is missed then back to zero. I will shoot until I make 50 in a row however long it takes!!! However, I will also pledge to keep shooting until I have made at least 500 free throws. The attempt will be streamed live and also uploaded.
The attempt will be taking place in the second weekend of May and a link to the live stream to follow.
£1 Donation would be great!
