This past weekend Grip Spritz had the opportunity to travel to Lynwood, Illinois for a high school showcase! It was such an awesome experience for us even aside from the business we did there.
We we're able to make some great connections with Sam Hill who organized the entire event, tons of referees who were also in the building for a ref's clinic, high school coaches from across the Chicago area and much more!
In addition to the business side of the weekend, we were also able to watch the philanthropic work done by the Yes U Can group come together so nicely. They provided a low cost weekend long experience for high school boys and girls to get in the gym and compete in front of college coaches.
In addition to the basketball being played, they also gave away over 150 jerseys, shoes, basketballs, sleeves and much more to everyone in attendance! $40,000 in scholarships were raffled off to lucky kids taking part in the weekend as well!
It's so awesome when groups like this can provide these opportunities and experiences to kids and allow them to have a chance to get to the next level whether that includes sports or not!
We are super blessed to have been invited and believe it's only the start of things our groups will do together in the future!
