Our guest speaker was Jeffrey Fick, President of the Richfield Basketball Assn. The league has been around about 20 years, & has both in-house and traveling teams. The vision for the league is to:

● provide space for youth to develop basketball skills.
● Support the high school teams
● Strengthen community awareness
● Provide leadership development

They face rising costs for traveling programs, which they address with fundraising activities. This years teams have about 90-100 boys, about 60 on the girls rosters. Only about 10% are getting scholarship help.
