Then we did an HIV Prevention/Safe Sex Event… Teaching other youth about safe sex Protecting yourself is cool!
And karma paid off…we got the first real basketball court built in our community!!!! First game on the court Yeah!!!!
So we played, and played, and played, and played….
And then we got officially inscribed into the National Basketball Federation of Honduras
And that same month 8 boys from our community got chosen to play basketball on scholarship in Tegus
So we got an idea and took a trip to the Mainland Lucky Nurt who got to tag along
And we went to see how amazing our boys were performing both in school and on the court Winning their division tournament Representing the Island!
So we tracked down Neil Roberts, who started an organization that helps youth in Honduras get scholarships for basketball. And we showed him videos of the Flowers Bay Boys.
And he was so impressed that he organized a training camp in June of 2013 so that other recruiters from both Honduras and the United States could come watch us play ball. So we took the journey…. And won EVERY game we played We learned a lot of new drills
And now 6 more of our boys have been chosen to receive scholarships for room/board and a private school education through C.A.B. O. (Central American Basketball Organization) where they will proudly represent Roatan both on the basketball court and off.
Isnt it time that we proudly represent them too??
