Locust Valley, N.Y. – The NYIT women’s basketball program took a break from running drills and practicing plays to donate their time in helping run the Hoops Carnival hosted by the Grenville Baker Boys and Girls Club on November 7.
The student-athletes spent the afternoon teaching kids in grades 1-6 the fundamentals of basketball and how to play together as a team, as well as enjoying basketball themed games that were featured at the event.
“It was nice to see our young ladies take time out of the early portion of our season to give back,” said Head Coach Anthony Crocitto. “The attendees were all so happy with NYIT and the energy our players and coaches brought to the carnival. We look forward to building a great relationship with the Boys and Girls Club.”
After opening play in Anaheim, California, the Bears returned back to the east coast and will resume their schedule when they participate in the ECC/NE-10 Challenge on Saturday, November 14 and Sunday, November 15.
