MARCH 19-23, 2014
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
This five day event will challenge them to critically evaluate the life path they will choose for high school and years to follow, all the while playing the game they love, basketball! The tournament activities include: “Born With A Purpose” Workshop/Boot Camp, team/player welcome arty, pool games, Friday Night Rising Stars Event, a dance, single elimination tournament play, praise/worship service, and a Final Four/Championship Sunday! And for all the coaches, they will be treated to delicious home cooking and great conversation at the coaches hospitality room throughout the entire tournament.
Our team at DS4JC is currently working on putting together a special guest to kick off the tournament on Wednesday, and special player incentive giveaways. God has granted our team with so much grace and mercy throughout our lives that we just want to extend the blessing to other people! This event is designed to challenge our student/athletes both mentally and physically in preparation for the “Big Dance,” that is life. We know the cycle of alcohol/drug abuse, gang violence, school dropouts, teen pregnancy, suicides, etc. can’t change overnight, but a new cycle needs to begin. In the Bible, Ecclesiastes 3:1 states: “There is a time for everything,·and a season for every activity under the heavens.” The bondage our Native American youth are currently in must change!
