Hillside Connection


What

At Hillside Connection, we provide pathways to opportunities for 1st through 6th grade boys in Southern Colorado Springs. We offer field trips and enrichment activities to reinforce the importance of education and civic engagement. We also offer basketball clinics because we believe that the skills necessary to succeed – drive, commitment, resilience – can be learned through sport.

Why

Sports is a powerful medium to bring people together. At Hillside Connection, we have a front row seat to that very thing! At our games, we see kids, parents, neighbors, volunteers, and local businesses together and supporting each other. The youth in our programs receive coaching, t-shirts, and mentorship, and all programming is provided free of charge, in a safe and inspiring environment.

Needs

Folding chairs for our players’ parents and grandparents to comfortably cheer on the youth, 2 10-gal water jugs; office equipment: 1-2 hp laptops, color photo copier/printer/scanner, label maker.

Did You Know

90% of kids in Hillside Connection programming receive free and reduced lunch; 24% higher than the average for schools in the area.

“Not only does it help with [basketball] fundamentals, but respect and morals are put into play when it comes to working with this group. “What you put in is what you get out” is what my son is learning.” — Hillside Connection Parent
