2017 Back To School Rally Registration
Calling all people who care about the youth —Heads Up For Our Youth Back to School Rally is a community partnership event designed to teach, motivate, and inspire young people as they prepare to go back to school and achieve academic success. This event was previously held at Brown’s Recreational Center located at 302 E. Vandalia Rd. in Greensboro, NC. In two years, we have had the pleasure of serving over 300 young people in attendance from the Triad at this event. By moving this event to the Greensboro Coliseum Fieldhouse and with your help we hope to make this the best back to school rally ever. This event will give the young athletes an opportunity train and workout in a professional 2 hour basketball skills and drills clinic provided by TGK Athletics. We have Kenny Harper coming with high energy to encourage the youth and provide them with information to improve their leadership skills. High School sophomore and aviation enthusiast Amelia Irvin will present a table top demonstration of the solar eclipse which will be visible in Greensboro the very next day. There will be a dance contest, Omega Psi Phi, other step teams , Cheerleaders, and our signature “ Cops and Barbers ” Charity Basketball Game featuring Heads Up Barber and Beauty and The Greensboro Police Department. We are excited about this opportunity for the triad to come together and rally around our young people as they strive for greatness. This event is free for all youth under 17, parents or guardian and coaches. We are encouraging parents and area basketball coaches to bring your teams to workout and have fun. If you have any questions please call 336.340.2171
The mission of Heads Up For Our Youth is to educate, motivate and provide opportunities for young people that will have a positive impact on their lives empowering them to become strong and productive members of our society.
