One of our members is a volunteer basketball coach at a local inner-city charter high school.
I got this email from him, and thought we could help him with this. Since many of us are meeting for the BBQ/Grape Stomp on Saturday anyway, we could combine this. Even if you're not coming to the event, please use this event to drop off your old gear and clear out your place.
"We have no usable weights in the weight room. Our kids share uniforms without warm-ups and all of our non-league games are away because we can't pay referees. Anyway if you could mention about the weights again in the announcement that would be great."
So, if you know any referees who'd offer free games, or have old free weights, or benches, resistance bands, etc--that you want to get rid of, please bring it by. I don't think they'll quibble over quality--anything is better than nothing! Olympic is preferred, but concrete, hand springs, gloves, etc.
If you want to get rid of other gear, like your nordic track, or something like that---email. I'll forward it to the coach and you'll work with him. DO NOT bring anything other than free weights or resistance bands.
