Serving With Integrity Shooting Hoops
How We Teach
Content-specific, sequential, and logical. Teachable moments throughout the lesson enable errors to be corrected through redirection rather than allowing mistakes to become ingrained or stigmatized.
Constant use of mind, voice, and hands throughout the lesson assures attention management and involvement. Purposeful introduction and summarization provide segment closure and support a successful transition.
What We Teach
Teach STEAM concepts to help school-aged youth and adults learn how to solve challenges and make better life decisions.
Teach acceptance, inclusion, and camaraderie plus lessons that translate to all aspects of life.
Teach self-responsibility and how self-responsibility impacts a group/community.
All SWISH programs are open to the public and to people with all abilities.

Who We Are
A network of givers. We care about our families, our friends, and our communities. We believe every human controls their own destiny but requires and is deserving of guidance and support. SWISH (Serving With Integrity Shooting Hoops) was developed and established to answer the call to reach and serve the forgotten and under-served, to teach self-awareness (identifying emotions, self-confidence, etc.), self-management (impulse control, goal-setting, etc.), social awareness (appreciating diversity, respecting others, etc.), relationship skills (communication, teamwork, etc.) and responsible decision making (analyzing situation, ethical responsibility, etc.).
