We're fund raising to support the People's Preparatory Charter School's Boys BaskebtallTeam! Contributions will cover numerous expenses for participants, including the cost of team swag, equipment and more.
Please read this special message from Head Coach, Juan Corerra:
Our program has been growing and will continue to grow. This is our fourth year as a Varsity Basketball program.In the 2017-2018 season, People’s Prep Boys Varsity Program became the first Team Sport in the history of the school to win a NJCSAL Championship!
Each year we accomplish bigger and greater things. With enough funding, we are looking to start our Junior Varsity program and potential freshman program next year to give more kids an opportunity to develop as successful student athletes. Our program holds high standards for student athletes, and we will continue to develop students not only as athletes but as successful members of our community.
With that said we also have former student athletes who are on their way to playing at the collegiate level. For Example, Jalil Moore People’s Prep all time leading scorer will be redshirting at Rowan University starting January and will be expected to play in the 2019-2020 season.
With much success comes great responsibility and a lot of work behind the scenes. We often find ourselves providing our students with water for games, healthy snacks prior to games and practices, game gear and game warm ups. Many times this has been money that has had to come out of students' and coaches' pockets. There are travel expenses and in house maintenance expenses that come along with the four month season. We want to have a successful basketball program that can compete at any level with any school in the state of New Jersey but we need more support in order to accomplish our major goals.
Please help us in making our community, school, and student athletes as successful as they can be.
