Once again it is time to begin making plans for the 2011 OHSAA
Foundation Basketball Service Week! This years Service Week dates
are Wednesday, November 16th through Saturday, December 3rd.
Packets and emails were sent to all member schools athletic
directors and basketball coaches. Applications can be
submitted online by following the link listed below.
Last year this widely successful program included over 250 schools
across the state taking part in over 100 events and raising over
$100,000 for charitable organization.
program offers member basketball teams the chance to replace a
scrimmage with a Foundation Game. The Foundation Game consists
of two teams playing under normal game conditions, but does not
count toward either teams overall record. Schools are required to
participate in a community service project benefiting a charity of
their choice in conjunction with the game.
Last year we recognized two schools during the State Boys Basketball
Tournament for their generosity and support of Foundation Service
Week. Chillicothe Unioto High School and Bishop Rosecrans High
School truly exemplify the spirit of service. This year we
hope to showcase more schools and let everyone know that we have
"Kids Who Care".
