Open Gym Basketball at Eastlake Park was a remarkable program we ran this summer as an outreach to valley youth. Our aim was to use basketball as a window to the lives of the Jr. High and High School kids that Eastlake Park serves. We brought dozens of counselors and teachers from Camp Elevate 2018 and invited some amazing guest speakers to share and interact with the youth during and in between games. One such guest and former Professional International Player Jimmy Scroggins gave some of the guys one-on-one coaching and blessed one lucky hooper with a free pair of shoes. We are so grateful for the many volunteers who showed up (and tried to keep up). With over 50 young people in attendance over the 7 weeks there were plenty of ministry opportunities and we can't wait to go back for another run very soon.
