Join Us in Supporting Our Basketball Program and the Challenger Initiative!

At PVJSA, we believe in the transformative power of basketball to bring people together and inspire personal growth. In addition to our standard program, we are proud to offer the Challenger initiative, a special program designed to help kids and adults in our community with special needs develop a love for playing basketball.

The Challenger program provides a supportive and inclusive environment where individuals of all abilities can participate in basketball activities, learn fundamental skills, and experience the joy of teamwork and competition. Each participant is paired with a buddy, a local youth volunteer who provides one-on-one support and encouragement throughout the season.

Our Challenger program runs annually on Sundays from January to March, offering a structured and consistent schedule for participants to engage in basketball activities and build lasting friendships.

By supporting our basketball program and the Challenger initiative, you are making a meaningful difference in the lives of individuals with special needs, providing them with opportunities for physical activity, social interaction, and personal achievement. Your generosity helps ensure that every participant feels welcome and supported.

In addition to supporting our Challenger initiative, your contributions also help provide scholarships to individuals in the community who want to participate in our standard basketball program. These scholarships enable aspiring athletes to access coaching, facilities, and equipment, regardless of their financial circumstances.

There are several ways you can support our basketball program and the Challenger initiative:

  1. Donate: Your financial contributions directly fund the expenses of both our Challenger program and scholarships for the standard program, ensuring that all individuals in our community have the opportunity to participate in basketball.
  2. Volunteer: Join our team of dedicated volunteers and coaches to become a buddy for a Challenger program participant or assist with coaching and mentoring in our standard program.
  3. Spread the Word: Share information about our basketball program and the Challenger initiative with your network, raising awareness and encouraging others to get involved.
  4. Attend Events: Show your support by attending Challenger program games, exhibitions, and fundraising events. Your presence makes a difference and helps celebrate the achievements of our participants.

Together, we can make basketball a sport for all, where everyone has the opportunity to play, learn, and grow. Thank you for considering supporting our basketball program and the Challenger initiative!
