Self-esteem through sports

Did you know, 64% of parents who have received a grant from Every Kid Sports reported that their child’s self-esteem has improved since having access to sports?

This week, I’m excited to share a message we received from Shani, Mom to Florida Basketball grant recipient, Brook-Lynn, regarding some of the changes she’s seen in her daughter since she’s started playing basketball.

Shani, Brook-Lynn’s mom

“Brook-Lynn is an amazing and shy young lady trying to navigate her way through being a pre-teen. Since playing basketball and attending practice with Hawthorne Youth Sports, her confidence and self-esteem has gone through the roof. I love seeing her learn new techniques and making new friends. She now has a team outside of her family and she’s embraced that.”

Q: What is Brook-Lynn most excited for this season?
A: Making new friends and playing with her existing ones!
