ABC TALENT Basketball Spring 2012

Dear ABC Supporters,

On March 24 the TALENT Basketball Program started its Spring 2012 Semester, bringing together on the court seasoned players and coaches, as well as new recruits, to collaborate and compete in the spirit of the 4Cs: Courage, Commitment, Care, and Confidence. 

Returning players include 44 students from Zhenhua School, Xinghe Bilingual School, and Pengying School. 

New recruits include 16 students from our newest migrant school partner, Diyi Xingongmin School! 

During the first session, TALENT rolled-out a freshly revised basketball skills curriculum. The revision efforts aimed to make basic training concepts easy-to-understand for youth new to the sport's skills, rules, and strategies. Curriculum development was led by a professional basketball player, with experience coaching youth in Korea and China. We hope that the accessibility of this curriculum will result in even more confident young female athletes!

Most importantly, the 4Cs continues to be the central component of the TALENT Basketball Program. We welcome 17 new volunteers who have committed 3 months of their time to 4Cs lesson planning and delivery, as well as skills coaching. We thank our volunteers for modeling and communicating soft skills and value sets that will benefit players as they encounter challenges on and off the court. 

For more details, including pictures of our newest partner school, and student anecdotes, see attached newsletter. 

Thanks for your continued interest and support in the empowerment of Chinese migrant girls via basketball!
