Getting Involved in the Community
Kori Sanders, Managing Director at Vivid Image has been involved with the Hutchinson Youth Basketball Association for the past five years.
Teaching basketball skills and sportsmanship to youth are things that will resonate with them long after they leave the court. The Hutchinson Youth Basketball Association aims to attract young girls and boys interested in learning to play basketball and enjoying a team atmosphere both on and off the court. Kori Sanders, Managing Director at Vivid Image has been involved with the Hutchinson Youth Basketball Association for the past five years. She was recruited by another board member a year before her oldest son, Jack started playing basketball. Knowing that basketball was in his future, Kori took an active role to learn more about this local organization and what it does for our area youth. Thanks to Kori and her active involvement over the years, boys and girls grades 4th-8th have an affordable, positive option for learning basketball and being part of a team.
A Valuable Asset to Our Youth
The Hutchinson Youth Basketball Association is independent from the local school basketball programs and offers all area youth an opportunity to learn about basketball. Youth from all area schools (public or private) and homeschool students are encouraged to take part. It is a traveling program, so participants get an opportunity to travel to different towns and meet other kids. Players represent the Hutchinson community, play in tournaments, and gain valuable basketball skills and life lessons along the way.
“I love the community and getting to know the kids and their families. It’s important to me to be able to give kids an opportunity to participate in constructive activities, as well as provide good adult mentors.” ~Kori Sanders
