Level UP in the Community

 

When it comes to giving back, Level UP has but one simple philosophy.  If you have it...give it.  That's the message that each coach aims to pass on to the team.  At Level UP, we contintue to strive to develop more than just basketball players.  We want our boys to leave the program as better players and better people, ready to go out in the community and make it a better place.  

 

Since inception in 2011, Level UP has donated to great causes such as:

 

  • Special Olympics

  • SEASPAR

  • Ronald McDonald House

  • Les Turner ALS Foundation

  • St. Baldricks

  • Lester School PTA

  • Noahs Hope

 

If you would like to join Level UP in giving back, or have a cause that you would like Level UP to consider supporting, please contact Matt Forzley at mattforzley@gmail.com.
