We didn’t think 2020 could get any worse, with our Top Flight players not being allowed to come together, play together and compete together. The ‘togetherness’ has been sorely missed. We set our sights on 2021 and began to forecast what our season would look like. Our excitement was palpable as we plunged into action to set up plans for tournaments, practices, clinics and buying uniforms that our players wear with such superbia.
Much to our dismay, our new training facility Splash Lab was burglarized recently and what was stolen? The Uniforms … every single one. There were other items taken but the uniforms were our greatest loss. We had them in boxes, so we assume the guys that did this did not know what was in them. Surely, they cannot do much with youth basketball uniforms and team issued Top Flight Elite gear. We are truly in loss for words…
Why did we feel this steal so much?
Uniforms are a great team-building resource and create a sense of belonging to something larger than the self. And, as parents and coaches of our players, there is a subtle sense of pride as we watch them stand out of the crowd! Uniforms serves as the mark of distinction each player wears.
For these reasons and more, we are asking for your help. Whatever you can contribute to cover the cost of replacing the lost uniforms would be greatly appreciated. We acknowledge that these times are difficult for everyone, including our players and the significant cost of isolation and lack of togetherness.
We assure you that we will be thankful for whatever you feel is right for you. Please share this with your friends as you feel is appropriate. Top Flight Elite is a 501c(3) Non-Profit Tax ID#: 90-0802029 . All charitable donations are tax deductible.
