"Winter Championship Week"
This week "2/25/13 to 3/03/13", was an exciting voyage for the youth participants, parents and staff. The winter season has come to an end with all participants, parents and staff leaving the courts as champions and better individuals than at the beginning. Every participant receive trophies, whom left with smiles and growth as young individuals that defeated and surpassed many challenges that seem difficult to them. Staff and parents were seen given testimonials about the overall performancd ot their child and player on and off the court (Home, School, and Player). Sportsmanship definitely was seen within participants.
This week "3/04/13 to 3/10/13, was an off week for all participants and coaches. Preparation for the Spring season was underway. Homework for players and coaches was given and ask to take into consideration of reviewing to be prepared for the upcoming season. Staff was in meetings this week reviewing the winter season and overviewing the spring season. Open registration was also open to all new participants and volunteer coaches to be aboard of TDBA, Inc.
This week 3/11/13 - 3/17/13, began the Spring season at TDBA, Inc. Round table meetings were continuing with strategic planning, practices were being ran and game locations and times were being set. There were a lot of new faces and great partnerships from parents and their organizations. "Strategic planning is worthless- unless there is first a strategic vision" John Naisbett
This week, 3/18/13 - 3/24/13, was about knowing your role as staff, pparents, and participants. Everyone was introduced to staff and there was breif meeting with parents and participants about the rules and regulations of conduct, while being involved with TDBA, Inc. This was avery interesting week to see and listen to all the reactions from staff, parents and participants. Great week!!!
This week 3/25/13 - 3/31/13, was Spring Break for kids in Central Florida. There was no practices and games schedule, due to many families going on vacation and the Easter holiday. However there was staff meetings and facility spring cleaning at TDBA, Inc. Participants were told to continue to practice on their basketball homework and be prepared for the next week.
This week 4/1/13 - 4/7/13, was my final week as a intern at TDBA, Inc. I found myslef having great love for this organization and recommend anyone wanting a internship to inquire. TDBA,Inc.; has offered me a great experience and I have learned a lot. There was always great communication amongst the staff that always keppt me with a warmth spirit. I will truly miss this organization. I was not offered a position yet, but still working on it. Meetings are being set up to look at options. Thank you TDBA, Inc.
