Perforce Foundation Steps onto the Court

Community

In the Spring of 2012, we had a vision to build a community-based girls sports program that focuses on teaching young girls the emotional and physical skills necessary to succeed in a Title IV level competitive sports environment and in life. We knew that with so many budget cuts to school and town-sponsored programs, it was going to take a strong vision and the help of many groups to successfully kick off this program.

The Perforce Foundation stepped onto the court to help build our program.

We started with a single competitive girls basketball team. It’s been an incredible year. Through growth and consolidation, we now support 6 competitive girls teams, grades 3 – 8. That’s 70+ girls in our program and over 25 adult volunteers. Our community now has a thriving and healthy pipeline of girls to feed the local high school and subsequent college basketball programs.

Recently, our 5th grade girls team won the largest tournament in the Western United States, the Reno Memorial Jam tournament.

Thanks Perforce Foundation, and way to go Vipers!
