What We Do At Saturday Hoops
Each Saturday morning throughout the year, Saturday Hoops strives to help improve our kids’ outlook on life and themselves by inspiring them to try new things and make new friends. Here are the things our volunteers do to achieve these goals:
We Build Positivity
We establish a positive environment, starting with morning devotion and ending with an encouraging message and lunch. Living out our themes of Cheerful Givers, Hard Workers, Overcomers, and Good Stewards is ingrained in everything we do. We count on community partners to make this happen.
We Connect With Each Kid
Our goal is to build self-esteem in each child through interactions with volunteers so that they grow to be confident and feel valued. Throughout the morning, there is time built in to encourage conversations between kids and volunteers.
We Have Fun Together
We do a variety of creative, instructional, and physical activities meant to stimulate, engage, model cooperation, and most of all, have fun! Here’s an example of our schedule:
Every Saturday, 9:00am-1:00pm
9:00-9:30am – Open basketball gym
9:45am – Volunteer orientation
10:00am – Welcome and speaker
10:15-11:45am – Activities
11:45am – Speaker
12:00pm – Lunch
1:00pm – Program ends
We’re always looking for more kids, volunteers, and community partners to join Saturday Hoops.
