Metroball Looking Ahead

By Terrance Judge | Co-Founder

2019 was a very huge year for Metroball Youth Outreach (MYO) and all of our programs. In 2019 Metroball was able to merge and/or partner with several other great organizations that were able to enhance our youth services and expand our reach among the youth in the greater Washington Dc area. These partnerships solidified MYO as the Largest Youth Basketball Organization in the Washington DC area. With over 17 active youth basketball teams, the largest youth summer streetball league, and a dedicated quality staff (coaches, mentors, teachers, and trainers), Metroball has set the standard for our programs as we move forward into the our 20th year of existence. 2020 will mark the 20th year of our organization serving youth. We plan on having many special events leading up to our main event, the 20th Annual New York Ave Classic Summer Youth Streetball League (June – August 2020).

The 19th Annual New York Ave Classic was spectacular and through some generous donations, we were able to provide some school supplies for the youth including Book Bags for many of the winning teams. All youth walked away with something and made this event very special.

Metroball DC AAU teams competed very hard this whole year and were able to become ranked among the top teams in the country. This was our first year with our top teams competing on the Adidas Silver Gauntlet and Jr. Gauntlet Circuits. As underdogs, our teams were able to win several of these top events all year showing that we have now arrived on the big stage. The success of this year has come with many offers from Colleges and Universities for several of our youth. These youth will have the opportunity to continue their education at some top Universities while playing Basketball.

With the rapid growth of our organization, we are dependent more than ever from donations to maintain our levels of service and to keep the costs low or completely free for our youth participants. In addition, we are looking for investors to help us build our own Athletic Facility and Prep School. We already have a location and building. We are seeking help to make this project a reality in 2020.

So the future looks bright for Metroball and with continued support, we will continue to grow and offer as many opportunities to youth well into the new year.
