Basketball Smiles Summer Program

Caribbean Bottling Co. (Bah) Ltd., bottlers and distributors of Coca-Cola and its allied brands are once again proud to sponsor the 18th annual Basketball Smile Summer Program. CBC was happy to come on board and provide beverages such as: PowerAde, Dasani Water and Soda to keep the children that participated hydrated.

“When we were approached 3 years ago we were delighted to come onboard and support. We are a bit sad that this is the last year for the camp, however we are always pleased and excited to be a part of events like, and we look forward to continuing to assist the youth in our community through programs such as these” says Cara Douglas CBC Marketing Manager

Basketball Smiles was birthed in the spring of 1999 when Coach Sam Nichols from McMurry University and Coach Patty Johnson from H.O.Nash Junior High school met in San Jose California at the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association Convention. A mutual love for basketball and children between these two coaches led to the first Basketball Smiles basketball camps in June 1999.

Over the years, Basketball Smiles has grown to where approximately 450 children are annually served through the project. As Basketball Smiles has grown, so has participation from members of the athletic industry, to where approximately seven to eight thousand dollars’ worth of shoes, shirts, socks, and basketballs are given away during the camps. The goal for Basketball Smiles is for every child to receive at least one piece of news athletic apparel.

In addition to basketball instruction, the camps present a Life Skills program that emphasizes citizenship, education, and self-discipline. The Life Skills program expanded to include specific academic tutorial materials to assist students.

 Coach Patty Johnson from H.O. Nash Jr. High School continues to be the Bahamian Coordinator for Basketball Smiles. Coach Johnson not only coordinates the basketball camps, but works with Bahamian school officials to where Coach Nichols and his staff conduct in-service training for elementary and high school physical education teachers, and Coach Nichols regularly speaks at several school assemblies during his trips.

“We just really appreciate the partnership with Caribbean Bottling with Basketball Smiles because when you have a high intensity camp the rehydration of the campers is crucial to have a successful camp. Caribbean Bottling coming on board and understanding our vision and helping us with water and PowerAde make the camp possible. This partnership was very effective and we would like to Thank Caribbean Bottling for their Support” says Coach Sam Nichols
