The mission of HSB Train for Life is to help kids develop their character and leadership skills so they can positively impact people and communities both locally in the Cleveland area and around the world. We strive to support people and programs that make a difference in kids’ lives..
HSB Train for Life also focuses on impacting youth basketball throughout the United States. We are dedicated to helping kids to succeed on and off the court.
HSB Train for Life is proud to establish the Head Start Basketball College Scholarship Program for the 2015-2016 academic school year. This scholarship will be awarded to a former Head Start Basketball Camp Participant who is entering college on a full time basis or currently attending college on a full time basis at a college or university in the United States of America.
The $500 scholarship may be used to cover tuition, books and supplies. The funds may be used for any term, including the summer term, during the awarded academic school year.
PCA awards scholarships of $1,000-$2,000 (depending on location) to high school athletes, based on their essays explaining how they meet the standard defined in Elevating Your Game: Becoming a Triple-Impact Competitor by PCA Founder Jim Thompson
- Personal Mastery: Making oneself better
- Leadership: Making one’s teammates better
- Honoring the Game: Making the game better.
Eligibility extends to any high school junior residing anywhere in the U.S. and playing for a high school team or in club sports!
Each holiday season Head Start Basketball Train for Life will be partnering with Ohio Guidestone (formerly Berea Children’s Home) to help local families in need. We will be sponsoring multiple families by purchasing Christmas gifts from their wish list.
We hold a gift wrapping and pizza party when everyone will bring their purchases and we will all wrap the gifts together. The gifts will then be delivered to Guidestone in time for Christmas. Last year we had a great time and we were able to help make Christmas brighter for eight local families.
If you and your family are interested in joining us for this great event next December please contact us as soon as possible. Thanks and looking forward to hearing from you.
Head Start Basketball and a team of 6th grade girls and their families teamed up with Ohio Guidestone’s Moms First program to provide a baby shower for 8 expectant Moms participating in the program. We were able to help those moms get their baby’s lives off to a good start.
MomsFirst provides the support moms need, whether this is their first pregnancy or not. A highly trained Community Health Worker assists moms with their health and social service needs, parenting classes, questions they may have about prenatal care, baby care, birth control or family planning.
