5 Boros Basketball Seeks Sponsors

Local Youth Basketball League Seeks Sponsors

5 Boros Basketball, a youth basketball team based in Greenpoint, is currently seeking one or more local businesses to serve as sponsors. 5 Boros Basketball is a registered 501(c)3 not-for-profit dedicated to offering youths from low-income families a chance to play competative basketball.

“Our motto is, ‘It’s All About the Kids,’” said 5 Boros Basketball Director Rick Atson. “Our goal is to keep this affordable for the kids.”

Founded in 2011, 5 Boros Basketball has quickly established a reputation for winning tournaments while stressing fair play. 5 Boros Basketball’s all-volunteer coaching staff teaches kids ages 9 to 17 the fundamentals of basketball, teamwork and sportsmanship.

5 Boros Basketball has grown rapidly, but rapid expansion means that access to court time and keeping the team financially stable have been major challenges for 5 Boros Basketball. Coaches have regularly paid for court space and tournament fees out of their own pockets in order to defray the cost from the children’s families.

Now 5 Boros Basketball has a tentative agreement with a local school to solve the problem of court time. What remains is to find sponsors to help with operation costs. To that end 5 Boros Basketball is seeking sponsorship offers from partners in the Greenpoint and Williamsburg community including local businesses, charitable individuals and all others.

Interested parties should contact Rick Atson at 347-723-4886. Or email 5borosbasketball@gmail.com
