REACT Basketball is a youth Basketball club with registered charity status (SC045050). Our aim is to increase public participation and volunteering within recreational, grass-roots basketball across our local community. We aim to achieve this by teaching children and young people KEY life lessons and transferrable skills through the delivery of our five REACT Values (Respect, Enable, Achievable, Community, Togetherness) as well as offering a sociable environment for our players to learn and develop their basketball knowledge. Our dedicated staff and volunteers work tirelessly throughout the week to ensure that every child in attendance gets exactly what they are looking for from our React programmes and help tailor each session to accommodate the age, skill level and ability of all of our participants.
React Basketball is a key member in the local community as we work in partnership with local foodbanks, shops, businesses and schools to ensure that every child, regardless of their background or upbringing, has the same opportunity and accessibility to sport throughout their childhood. The money which could come from Crowdfunding would be hugely beneficial to React and would go a long way in helping us to continue the work we do in and around the local community as well as allowing us to reward our magnificent volunteers for the hours of service they provide to REACT by sending them on Coach education courses, which in turn would improve their CV’s and their chances of securing full time employment within the sport and leisure industry. The secured funding would also allow us to upgrade our equipment resulting in better opportunities and a higher level of development for our children and young people across our community.
