For the last 5 years, the ARC 13s Elite has worked hard to improve their individual and team skills to the point where they can be considered an elite team. This year the team will qualify to participate in the AAU National Championships, July 2-9, in Greensboro, NC .
However, the team consists of players of low income players throughout Southern California and they will not be able to afford the airfare and lodging necessry to attend the national tournament. ARC (American Roundball Corporation) is a non-profit program and tries to make it possible for young players to play even if they can't afford it. Approximately $5,000 per player is needed to make this trip happen and there are 10 players and 3 coaches and various parents to serve as chaperones, so the total needed would be around $50,000.
The exposure that they will receive from this experience will put them on a path to possibly receiving a college scholarship, besides being something they will remember for the rest of their lives. Please make it possible for these young players to afford this life-changing oppurtunity.
