RBC summer youth program starts Monday

The Rollers Basketball Club’s Rectify Summer Youth Basketball Program will begin this Monday at the basketball court in Koblerville.

Registration will start at 4:30pm and activities should be up and rolling by 5:30pm.

The program is structured as a fundamental skills clinic that ends in a tournament setting. It is designed to introduce basketball to interested youth players in the area, age 6 to 13 and will run in Koblerville for about two weeks before moving to Kagman II for Part 2 of its three-leg series. The program finishes up in Garapan.

“Our definition of rectify is to set right and we chose it as the title because that pretty well sums up what the RBC is trying to do-be a good example for the future generation,” RBC head coach Joe Diaz said.

“The Rectify program gives the kids in these neighborhoods something to do during their summer vacation. The program is designed to be a fun and healthy way to promote a proactive lifestyle and interaction with others to help build social and leadership skills,” Diaz added.

The RBC members also contrived a catchy acronym for the banner that reads Respect-Educate-CNMI-To-Inspire- the Future-Youth.

Organizers were trying to kick off the program last Monday, but did not receive the grant funding until last Thursday.

For more information, contact Diaz at 285-4141 or Paul Camacho at 233-8978.
