SPREAD THE LIGHT
Spread the Light, is a program designated to create and implement ways to spread the love of Infirnity to children and adults all over. Spread the Light may create one time events, annual programming for the community or simple acts of kindness to others.
Currently Spread the Light has created 4 different outreach opportunities.
Pure Competition Infirnity Basketball Program
Infirnity outreaches to youth and young adults throughout the 5 boroughs to participate in competitive city tournaments. This group of basketball players are always of a different age group than the cornerstone Infirnity Light Basketball Team (i.e. Infirnity Light is 15U, and the Pure Competition Program is 17U). The youth who engage in this are not required to participate in Infirnity character development programming nor do they obligated to receive individual or team practices. This is purely for youth who are seeking opportunities for basketball competition and chose to experience it under the leadership and guidance of Infirnity.
Infirnity Coaching Internship
Infirnity Coaching Internship (I.C.I.) is a 4-5 week paid internship program that provides college age students with coaching experience, as well as, guided development in leadership skills such as communication, dedication, commitment, confidence, honesty, initiative and a positive mindset. It creates opportunities for young adults to gain basketball-training experience with the youth, while building leadership skills and work proficiency.
Infirnity Steps After School (beginning in Spring 2017)
Infirnity team partners with high school basketball players to help organize and run a 6-week elementary after school program.
Summer Basketball Clinics
Spread the Light is currently working on creating a Basketball Clinic for Summer 2017. Infirnity Alum and I.C.I. Interns will run this clinic under the supervision and mentorship of Infirnity Coaches. The clinic’s objective is to provide the city’s youth with intensive and fun basketball training.
