It is great to see the kids playing summer basketball again in Millville.
"Regardless of who wins, its all about giving our kids something to do. Although we aren't perfect. In hardened cities like ours you have to make a choice. Would you rather see our kids playing basketball or running the streets doing Lord knows what? As parents, mentors and coaches we are supposed to teach the youth through the wins and losses. Plus the experience is only going to be what we all make it collectively. I focus on the smiles on the kids faces and that's a big blessing. Forget all the extra stuff I just want to see the kids play." said Coach JT Burks
"Sweat, Blood and Tears"

It was a very impressive first week of games. The players really enjoyed themselves. We can still use a clean up crew, clock operators and those to keep the game
