In this blog today, we bring you the update on Afterschool Fun that we promised in our first afterschool fun post. Our afterschool fun with We W.I.L.L. Thru Sports program at Neighborhood Charter School of Harlem has been quite an exciting and successful project.
The Afterschool Fun Tournament Began This Week!
After-School Fun just turned up with this week’s start of the tournament. Over the past 2 months, coaches have been training & developing these scholar-athletes to physically prepare for the tournament. Within this time, We W.I.L.L. Thru Sports has been educating, empowering, and watching youth become healthier. You can find more on this program in our first After-School Fun With We W.I.L.L. Thru Sports post.
What Our Students Are Saying About Afterschool Fun
Students were so glad to be participating in a contact sport with a competitive component. They expressed appreciation for being able to play safely in the tournament without a mask. Many students said they had a lot of fun and one, in particular, stated, “It was fun. It’s like the old times”. When you hear the sincerity from our youth, you are reminded of the impact sports and mentoring leave on their lives.
The vibe in the atmosphere was an exciting and refreshing one for all of us involved in the tournament. Hence, we are ready for the next round of competition, ready to see great effort on everyone’s part, and always sportsmanship. Although we are all winners, stay tuned to find out who will ace the tournament and take the trophy home. We will bring you another update on afterschool fun really soon!
