Project C.H.U.C.K.

The goal of Project Continuously Helping Uplift Community Kids, better known as Project C.H.U.C.K., is to provide our youth with the resources they need in order to give their best efforts in all they do, both now and in the future. Boys and girls 7-18 years old play a total of 20 basketball games during seven weeks with the ultimate goal of advancing in the playoffs to the championship game on Championship Day. In addition to providing children with something to do, Project C.H.U.C.K. teaches them discipline, self-confidence, team orientation, and the fundamental skills of basketball, all while having a great time!
