(West Palm Beach, FL) 17 June 2010 – The Salvation Army Northwest Community Center competed in the United States Specialty Sports Association (USSSA) State Championship Game held in Tampa, Florida over the June 11th weekend.  The Salvation Army team captured the title in a 65 to 49 victory over the Florida Phenoms from Naples.  This is the first state title for the Seventh Grade male traveling basketball team and the first tournament win this year.

“This team has been playing against eighth graders all season, but the kids kept focused and peaked during a critical hour for a big accomplishment,” said Athletic Director, Dennis Hanna.  “I am excited for these kids and the city of West Palm Beach, this puts us on the map as having outstanding basketball players in Palm Beach County,” continues Hanna.

The Salvation Army Northwest Community Center Seventh Grade Travel Team has aspirations of traveling to the Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) Nationals held in Memphis, Tennessee June 27th thru July 4th.   “This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for these boys to play against other teams from across the country and measure their skills on a national level,” says Hanna.  

To accommodate the trip The Salvation Army must come up with nearly $15,000 to provide lodging, transportation, as well as meals and tournament fees for the team of ten boys and two coaches to participate.  The Salvation Army is encouraging the community to rally behind these young men whom have captured the State Title for West Palm Beach and contribute to their fund by sending donations to:        
                                The Salvation Army Northwest Community Center
                                c/o State Champion Travel Team
                                P.O. Box 789
                                West Palm Beach, FL 33402
                                or call them at  561-686-3530 ext 331 to donate.

“We need to support youth, period!” said Athletic Director Hanna.  “Whether it be athletically or academically we need to be there as parents and mentors to our local youth.  We owe it to those whom made an impression in our lives growing up and inspired us that we too could be great achievers,” Hanna ends.

The Salvation Army of Palm Beach County
The Salvation Army of Palm Beach County has been serving residents since 1922.  The Salvation Army is an international movement and an evangelical part of the universal Christian church.  Its message is based on the Bible and its ministry is motivated by the love of God.  Its mission is to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and to meet human needs in His name without discrimination.

The Salvation Army Northwest Community Center
The Salvation Army Northwest Community Center opened in April of 2000 due to a collaborative effort between the City of West Palm Beach and The Salvation Army.  One of the fundamental objectives of the Northwest Community Center is to create opportunities for local children to be exposed to positive influences through mentoring, character building workshops, tutoring and recreational activities.  The Salvation Army strives to build community networks and to collaborate with local residents, agencies and businesses to provide social services.
