â€œBecause I Canâ€ Basketball Ballhandling Club puts on a great performance!
Prospect Elementary is proud to have a â€œBecause I Canâ€ Basketball Ballhandling Club at our school for the second year. Prospectâ€™s club includes 3 volunteer teacher coaches - Mrs. Pawlowski (4th Grade), Miss. Peachthong (3rd Grade), and Mrs. Rosenthal (PE) and 40 boys and girls in grades 3-5.
This year the club was asked to perform as the halftime show for the Parkwood High School Girlâ€™s Varsity Game on February 1st.
The focus of the program is to build our studentsâ€™ character through the use of a basketball and ballhandling drills. Inspiring phrases such as; â€œNever Say I Canâ€™t â€“ Always Say Iâ€™ll Tryâ€ and â€œDo The Work,â€ are recited throughout the weekly morning practices. Students learn what hard work, improvement, and success feel like as they work to better their basketball handling skills. This program is a part of Networks, a non-profit organization.
