AZ Run-n-gun Academy

An East Valley club basketball team offering year round training for all levels from age 6 to 16

Founded by Dave Harris, the Arizona Run-n-Gun Academy is an east valley club basketball team offering a premier basketball training program for youth ages 6 through 16. This year-round model was developed to give players as well as parents the opportunity and flexibility to concentrate on school and attend non-basketball functions throughout the year all while keeping up with and advancing their skills on the court. The end goal of the academy is to develop Arizona youth both on and off the court through discipline, trust and hard work and be instrumental in their journey of becoming an elite player.

IMPORTANT REMINDERS PLEASE READ I NEED EVERYONE TO UNDERSTAND THANKS

Good morning everyone just reminding everyone about fundraising. Everyone must fundraise 250.00 at the least you should be shooting for much more but just incase it’s not going good 250.00 is your cap. I had quite a few parent ask me if they can just pay the 250.00 and I said NO I think it’s really important to have your kid work hard for what he or she wants to do. Fundraising is real life JOB type training it makes him or her get out and WORK by asking friends and family members for pledges and you save yourself some out of pocket money. So please help your child ask people but please encourage him to FUNDRAISE. EVERYONE is also has to Fundraise please we are moving to a new direction with our apparel and need all the money we can get. All fundraising money will purchase our Nike uniform and Nike Bags and Coaches shirts and shorts. The Free Throw Athon Fundraise will end on the Wed the 29th of Aug that’s when we will have our 3rd Annual Free Throw Athon all money will be due on that day. Please invite any and all pledges and family members who would like to come it will be at The Gilbert Boys and Girls Club where we practice. I pushed back the Free Throw Athon to give everyone more time fundraise. We will have our banquet that Fri at Amazing Jake’s in Mesa on Aug 31st. Our 2nd Funfraiser is Arizona Cardinals Football Squares fundraise will go on until the Cards 1st official game so parents please start selling those now if you dont know how it works please get with me ASAP. I will have the squares sheet to add names at the next practice on Wed. Bags and old uniforms SO SORRY we are still waiting on those Items so whenever we get them I will hand them out.been. It’s been awhile so I came up with NO DUES IN SEPT Im sorry thats my way of making it right so NO DUES will give you your money back for the bags and hopefully if they come in whoever brought them will still get them they are paid for so I will ask every day and just wait it out. Also last but not least the kid that fundraisers the most will get a Bike last years winners for the Girls was Erin and Boys was Bryce they went well over 250.00 and Both received a Bike. We will also have prizes for our Free Throw Athon Event. Thanks guys if you have any questions or concerns please call me or email me see you all on Wed at 530 for practice.
