Expressions Elite 7th Grade Basketball AAU Donations



“I am excited to announce that the 2014 Expressions Elite Basketball 7th grade basketball team is the number one AAU team in all of New England, and has qualified for the AAU Nationals in Memphis, Tennessee! This special group of players travel great distances to practice together in Brockton and Boston two times a week. I cannot put into the words the sacrifices the parents, players and coaches make in order to get this talented group together twice a week. This team will be one of 64 other elite teams to compete in this tournament. We are extremely proud of these boys, who have joined together to form a resilient group in order to be able to compete on the national stage! This team has worked very hard, and is dedicated group of young men who love to play basketball.”

“However as a program who serve inner city youth, we simply to do not have the funds on hand to take such a large group to this prestigious event. We are working very hard in order to raise the funds in order to send these boys to the nationals. The kids are putting forth their best efforts day in and day out, but it is simply not enough. These young men need your help in order to make their dreams come true and represent one of the best AAU programs in the country at the nationals! No donation is too big or too small, and any contribution that you can make would be greatly appreciated. The coaches, parents and players have all sacrificed so much this spring to make sure that we are competing at the highest level. The results have been tremendous, as any spectator who has watched this team has spoken about how hard they play! Thank you in advance for taking the time to read this letter, and here is a breakdown of the costs associated with this tournament.” – Coach Josh Corria
