Out of respect for the family and mourning of the community in Harlem after the loss of 13-year-old Garrett Warren, we are postponing tomorrow’s Skills & Drills Clinic at Democracy Prep. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Warren and Alfa Barrie families at this time.
We are excited to announce that Ballin' 4 Peace is partnering with Democracy Prep for a free Skills & Drills Clinic and a 3x3 Basketball Community Classic, where kids will get the chance to develop and show off their hoop skills, meet the Regional Superintendent, and learn more about Democracy Prep.
The one-day event taking place on Saturday, May 20 (12:00 pm - 4:00 pm) at Democracy Prep Harlem Middle School provides young basketball players with the chance to grow on the court and learn about the importance of teamwork, communication, and community thanks to Ballin’ 4 Peace Founder and former college basketball (Sacramento State University) standout guard, Haron Hargrave, helping lead the Skills & Drills Clinic and 3x3 Basketball Community Classic.
“In the past, Democracy Prep has been a generous supporter of Ballin’ 4 Peace and so I am looking forward to giving back to the school and students in this way in Harlem,” said Hargrave.
“Just as Democracy Prep empowers young people with the skills, habits, and values to flourish in the classroom and life, we take a similar approach at Ballin’ 4 Peace to strengthening our communities and spreading peace through sports. I can’t wait to get on the court and work with these amazing kids.”
Children of all ages are welcome to participate in a time slot based on a child's grade and registration is available online:
Grades 1-5 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
Grades 6-8 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm
Grades 9-12 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm
