the project

Elevation Training Center (ETC) is an efficient, experienced licensed basketball program which offers year-round skill development, camps, clinics as well as personal and athletic training. Aside from basketball, we offer mentoring, community service and other outreach initiatives to positively impact athletes in Lorain County.

In order to expand our network and impact as many youth as possible, we are implementing new programming to engage youth and their families such as seasonal basketball clinics and leagues.

Our fall basketball league will begin in September and end in October. This league is open to both male and female athlete ages 6 to 12.

Our goal is to impact and transform the lives of each athlete and household we are privileged to work with. We are imploring you to donate and partner with us as we continue to positively impact Lorain County youth and their families. 


the steps

1. Purchase jerseys for athletes at no additional cost to participants

2. Design and order trophies and medals for championship game in October

3. Create and distribute marketing materials, including but not limited to digital advertisements, physical handouts and billboards.

why we're doing it

Due to the numerous challenges families may face, we understand not every child will have access to high quality, effective sports training. We are committed to creating avenues that make our services available to as many as possible.
