Global Handwashing Day

October 15th, 2022

Today is Global Handwashing Day.

We want to remind our parents and coaches to have their players wash their hands before and after any practices and games, as well as in their everyday lives. 

This sport requires a great use of the hands. The sport of basketball involves primarily the use of hands to control, shoot, throw, and catch a basketball. 

As such, It should be our shall social responsibility to promote proper handwashing.
