Summer 2015 will mark the 5th anniversary of the Northern Cheyenne Basketball Clinic.
The challenges faced today by most Reservations are impossible to ignore. Poverty, drug and alcohol abuse, suicide, and a lack of basic services are the unfortunate reality for many and the Northern Cheyenne Reservation is no exception. HabLab's outreach program was born out of the idea that community development has the greatest potential for positive change when it sprouts from a common ground. For the Northern Cheyenne community basketball is pervasive. It is a popular and positive influence and the common ground upon which we built the annual clinic.
Each year since 2011 has brought increased involvement from K-12 participants, community members, nationally renown coaches, speakers, trainers and nutrition specialists.
We can't wait to see what 2015 brings.
The Northern Cheyenne Basketball Clinic is a partnership between HabLab and the Rocky Mountain Tribal Wellness Initiative.
