30 Stories For 30 Years: Chapter 27– Helping Kids Grow on and off the Court

PPAG‘er Kevin Hagan’s South Jersey Basket Ball Academy was recently featured on Jersey Sports Zone.  Kevin, a former collegiate basketball player, and his partner Brian Bouchard, the assistant head coach of the Rowan men’s basketball team, created this series of camps and skills sessions to give back to kids in South Jersey.  The SJBA gets kids playing outside on the blacktop where they learn to play as a team, and they might just skin their knees.  Not only are Kevin & Brian developing and refining fundamental basketball skills, but they’re teaching kids life skills like respect, resilience, hard work and discipline.
