Biddy Basketball Donation

Since 1951, Biddy Basketball has been teaching both boys and girls the skills and fundamentals of basketball. Instituting the concepts of an imposed height limit, shorter goals and a smaller ball made the game of basketball competitive for younger players.

We love what Firmin Simms, President, Biddy Basketball has to say:

“The Greek poet Menander once said:
‘Children should be led into the right paths, not by severity, but by persuasion.’
This is a primary goal of the Biddy Basketball program. Our hope is to have our young athletes participate in healthy, high-spirited, and competitive games.  Additionally, we hope to instill in all our youngsters a sincere desire to develop a feeling of citizenship, sportsmanship, loyalty, team spirit, and self-pride.”

We are happy to make a donation our local 9 & 10 year old All-Star Biddy Basketball team to help defer the cost of travel, lodging and food as they prepare to travel to Madisonville for a National Tournament. The tournament will be held March 27th-April 1st.
