Shooting Touch is a sport-for-development non-profit whose mission is to use the power of basketball to educate and empower young people around the world. Our programs have served over 11,000 youth globally, employing a dual on/off-court curriculum designed to teach youth the fundamentals of the game, while also providing vital health education for an active lifestyle free from disease today, and the skills and trajectory for success in the future.
Domestically, Shooting Touch has established a year-round presence and program in Boston that provides inner city and suburban youth with opportunities for development, both on and off the court. In the Spring of 2015, Shooting Touch launched G3 Boston: Getting Girls in the Game. G3 has partnered with three Boston Charter Schools and the Boston Police Department to provide over 75 Boston middle school females the opportunity to use basketball as a tool to learn health education, leadership and social development.
I personally own a few pair of ISlides, and they are easily the most comfortable & well designed slides/sandals out there. Not to mention the fact that you can customize them with Celtics logos and just about anything else you can think of. They also recently released an NBA Legends pack which features Bird, McHale and more. So go check them out and fill out your bracket while you’re there..
