Dear Parent, Athlete, Coach or Recruiter,

If you know of someone in your community who should be recognized for their outstanding performance on the court, exemplary sportsmanship and athletic talent, congratulate them for their outstanding basketball achievements and encourage them to register for the IAP Sports 2009 DIAMOND Classic Basketball Recruitment Showcase. For a limited time we have slashed our fee for less than half of the original cost ($100.00). This unique event will be held in Toronto at Ryerson University, from July 23rd -26th; Vancouver at Simon Fraser University from August 7th-10th; and lastly in Halifax at Acadia University from August 20th-23rd, 2009.

Because this is a charitable event, each donation of $100.00 is going towards a series of projects we have set-up on our quest to ‘Connect the World Through Sports’ along with your showcase registration fee. In order to CONNECT THE WORLD THROUGH SPORTS we are hosting a series of community awareness projects:

►CANADA Wide Shoe Drive – Purpose: to collect 20,000 + slightly used shoes and keep them out of the landfills by cleaning, re-packaging and shipping them to communities in need as well as creating basketball equipment out of the un-usable sneakers to be shipped to local communities as well as Africa.

►Connect the Dot’s Charity Concert and Family fair – Purpose: to raise funds to build the 1st basketball school in Cape Coast Ghana (Africa)

►The International Sports Over Boundaries Fundraiser – Purpose: to raise enough funds to help fly the Cape Coast Hoops basketball team from Africa to the Toronto basketball recruitment showcase.

►IAP Sports Scholarship Fund – Purpose: to raise funds in the community to help stand out athletes pay for College and University tuition fees.
