2017 NWAC BASKETBALL CHAMPIONSHIPS
NWAC Community Service Project
The NWAC is pleased to announce our 2017 NWAC Basketball Championship Tournament community service project with the Boys and Girls Club of Snohomish County.
The NWAC is asking that student-athletes from the teams competing in the championship tournament bring non-perishable food items to the tournament, March 10-13 to be collected by representatives from the Boys and Girls Club-Everett and then distributed to local families in need.
It is our goal that each student-athlete will bring anywhere between 2-5 non-perishable (canned or otherwise) food items which would total over 700 items amongst all of our competing teams. Please work with your student-athletes on this important endeavor as the NWAC continues to honor Character, Competition and Community.
The Boys and Girls Club of Snohomish County has 20 Clubs and 15 extension sites providing programs that help over 18,000 youth achieve academic success, live healthy and active lifestyles, and develop good character and leadership skills. The Boys & Girls Clubs of Snohomish County is a non-profit organization providing young people ages 5-18 with a safe and positive place to spend their time before and after school and during the summer. Clubs are strategically located in neighborhoods and are accessible to all kids. Since 1946, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Snohomish County has been helping kids from tough neighborhoods stay out of trouble, stay in school and succeed in life.
NWAC Supports Wounded Warrior Project
As the Northwest Athletic Conference continues in its service to use athletics as a way to support others, the NWAC is proud and honored to announce that at each 2016-2017 championship event, along with donating items to the community, NWAC will support Wounded Warrior Project and honor a veteran and his/her family.
The honored veteran will take part in championship ceremonies and will serve as a guest at the championship events. NWAC Executive Director, Marco Azurdia states, “Working with Wounded Warrior Project allows our student-athletes the chance to honor a veteran for his/her service which is a great lessoned to be learned and provides the veteran an opportunity to enjoy our student-athletes.”
