Beyond the Rim Experience: Year in Review 2010-2011
After winning their first DAAA national championship, the Towers and their fans were running sky high with emotions. Feeling great from being able to accomplish their year end goal after a lot of hard work and practice time over the last 12 months.
The Towers embarked on a brand new journey after Nashville…one they would call Beyond The Rim. The name of their new awareness event they would bring to five different schools over the course of the on coming school year. The Towers found a great way to introduce Little People, individuals with disabilities, and put a different spin on anti-bullying tactics all by bringing their message to the court and to the classroom. The students couldn’t stop talking about us when we left, the teachers built lessons around it, and administrators put on great fundraisers for their PTA’s.
After a very successful debut season of the Beyond The Rim experience, the Towers win loss record on the court finished at 3 wins, 2 losses vs opponents comprised of students, faculty, and PTA members of each of the schools they played. We’d like to thank the New York Wizards, Manhattanville College, Long Island Lions, Commack High School, and Ward-Melville High School for believing in our event and seeing it through to the end.
The Towers also want to send out their biggest thank you of all to all their family and friends who came to the games, supported to the team, made banners, took tickets, sold t-shirts, and pitched in to make it a real family event. Without them, none of these games and events would have been possible and nearly as successful as they were.
