Rip City Academy (Jr. NBA)

October 8, 2016

With Us is proud to share that we were able to be a part of Rip City Academy with our President Pat Connaughton this past Saturday. It was hosted at the Trail Blazers practice facility with many members of the team present.

The goal was to generate awareness and excitement for the Jr. NBA and Trail Blazers Youth Basketball initiatives. Engage Rip City Academy participants in a unique and memorable experience. Our Rip City Academy partners with existing Recreational Basketball Leagues to connect their youth to the Trail Blazers by providing tickets to a game, jerseys, coaching workshops and more!

The team members coached their respective teams throughout the day and generated a lot of excitement for the games. With Us works with the Jr. NBA in the summer for our own camp back in the Boston area, so taking part in a similar experience across the country helps our growth towards helping more kids!
