On Feb. 28, the WestCare Wisconsin Basketball Team played their first game on a professional basketball court. The team is coached by retired NBA player, Marcus Landry and assisted by WestCare Wisconsin’s Regional Vice President, Travis Landry. The team consists of 11 players ranging from sixth to eighth-grade youth. This league was created and designed to assist and encourage youth to understand the importance of being team players and develop coping skills as young individuals. The team practices on Saturday mornings at Northcott Neighborhood House, which allows them a place to grow both as a team and in their maturity. It was a great evening and experience for all involved!
