Basketball for Senegal

Jan. 25, 2018 | A group of students heading to Senegal this coming March recently found out that they will be building an outdoor basketball court.

This Round Square Service Project team was selling raffle tickets a few weeks ago as a fundraising effort for their trip. They have just learned that their service project will require them to build an outdoor basketball court for local schools while in Senegal. As part of their experience, they must purchase and/or gather all supplies here and determine the best way to get them to West Africa. Today the team received their order of nets, practice and game balls, and bibs. The group heads to Senegal in a little over a month, during our March Break.

*A special thank you to the BCS Athletics department for the generous donation of not only basketball rims, but also hockey bags for transportation purposes!
