Roll-n-Shoot Basketball Tournament

Posted by Len Gilbert on November 4, 2013

On November 9th the Piedmont High Men’s Basketball Program and Bay Area Outreach & Recreation Program (BORP), a local nonprofit organization that provides opportunities for kids with physical disabilities to play organized, wheelchair basketball and other sports, is co-sponsoring a 3-on-3 wheelchair basketball tournament fundraiser that will benefit the basketball programs at PHS and BORP.


The fund raising event is called “Roll ‘N Shoot” and will be made up of teams of Piedmont High basketball players and other PHS students who will play wheelchair basketball against each other and be coached by BORP players.  The Roll ‘N Shoot is a fun way to raise awareness about young athletes with disabilities and a great way to raise money for the basketball programs at PHS and BORP.

The money raised from the fundraising effort will enable the Highlanders to purchase new uniforms, new basketballs, and other equipment. For BORP, funds will be used to enable players to travel to wheelchair basketball tournaments to experience competitive play.

Donations can be made through Piggybackr, a fundraising platform designed for students, and will then be distributed to BORP and the Piedmont High Men’s Basketball Program.  All donations are 100% tax-deductible.  The goal for each team is to raise $500.

Eight Piedmont Players have already signed up to Captain a team.  The tournament is open to the community.  If Dads, Moms or other community groups would like to form teams, we welcome all.  The Piedmont Coaches are one of the teams and have raised $600 already.  Let’s go Piedmont!

For the Team Captains, the link below has instructions to recruit your team and a sample fundraising email to start your fundraising.

If you have any questions regarding the website, please email Josh from BORP,josh@borp.org  Debbie djp815@yahoo.com.
