Our organization provides teens with positive opportunities and educational programs which minimize risky behaviors. Our latest initiative is a grassroots 16U travel basketball team for talented girls in our local area.
Since 1995, The Coalition for Delaying Parenthood in Youth has been actively working toward reducing the serious problem of teenage pregnancy in the Emporia/ Greensville area. We accomplish this goal by providing area teenagers with positive opportunities and providing educational programs which minimize risky behaviors. As an extension of our efforts, we have founded a 16U Girls Travel AAU Team (Team Triple H). This team will compete in 6 NCAA sponsored tournaments attended by college coaches interested in recruiting players. The team will be coached by former WNBA and International Professional Player Sharon Manning-Randolph and will target young ladies from the Southside Virginia/ Northern North Carolina area. This team will provide a safe outlet to staying physically active, exposure to college opportunities and leadership skills to stand out in their communities.
WE NEED YOUR HELP!
In an effort to ensure that all of our athletes are able to travel to the tournaments, we are asking for the community support to assist us in raising funds to travel as a team. We will be participating in tournaments in North Carolina, Kentucky Georgia and each donation will be used for the team’s travel fees. Travel will be included for 12 athletes, 4 chaperones, and 2 coaches. There is no donation too small, as every amount donated will make a difference. A single grain of sand can tip the scale. Your contribution given from the heart can indeed make a difference! Be the grain that tips the scale continuing to reduce the number of teenage pregnancies in our community. Make a difference, Donate to the Coalition today!
