Ladies Who Hoop offers free youth programming through Future LWH, a unique all–girl program created to help build confidence and character in young ladies by promoting educational, athletic and life skills development through basketball. Members learn teamwork, goal setting and the pursuit of quality in performance from an all–female coaching staff, while gaining valuable life lessons through participation in community events, workshops and a number of local and regional tournaments. In addition to basketball instruction, the program provides enrichment opportunities to help members develop leadership skills and become meaningful contributors to their local communities. Programing includes volunteering, prevention & early intervention, STEM, social influence & professional development, homework help and peer to peer mentoring, as well as special initiatives like Watch Me Work, a program that introduces girls to a variety of women in diverse career fields through mini-apprenticeships. Future LWH programs are provided free of charge in partnership with the Goddard Riverside Community Center Beacon Program. Contact us to learn more about open enrollment and year-round programming.
