Raising Hoops (and Funds) for Kids

VinsSJSA.jpgHere it is - my official blogging debut.  As the newest member of the Lifetime365 blog team, I'm looking forward to sharing some of my personal experiences and basketball product expertise with you.

'Tis the Giving Season!  And, if you're a regular reader of this blog, you already know that giving back is one of the things that is extremely important to Lifetime.  So, needless to say, I was excited to recently have the opportunity to participate in giving back on behalf of Lifetime at the South Jeffco Sports Association (SJSA)  Holiday Tournament in Lakewood, Colorado. SJSA is a nonprofit youth sports organization offering playing opportunities in various sports  to kids age 4-17.

The Holiday Tournament event was held at the Gold Crown Field House in Lakewood. The three-day tournament included boys and girls in grades 3-8.  It was very intense. To be a part of watching kids compete and show their teamwork was great to see. (And, a little humbling seeing some of their skills surpass  my abilities!)

As part of the event, Lifetime had a small booth where we raffled off a Lifetime Portable Basketball System.  Through our raffle, we were able to raise $210 for SJSA.  (And, of course, award one lucky winner with a new Lifetime Basketball Hoop!)SJSA2.jpg

We had a number of parents at our booth asking  us about all the different Lifetime Basketball Systems we make. It was awesome to be able to interact with the parents and chat with them about the different models we offer for the different age groups and skill levels competing.  Even though all of our portable basketball systems adjust in height, models are designed specifically to be ideal for beginners, intermediate, or advanced players depending on the features offered on the system such as size and type of backboards.  Educating our consumers about which hoop is best for them is important to Lifetime.

We are excited to partner with SJSA and look forward to continuing to work with these young kids in the future. To be able give back to the children was an amazing experience. 

By the way, since I'm talking about basketball and giving, it's seems fitting that I remind you that we are still giving away basketball hoops in our 25 Hoops for 25 Years giveaway!  We have just a few more hoops to giveaway before the end of 2011.  So, if you haven't already entered - hurry and click here!

Lifetime Card Table Comparison
A few months ago, I posted some photos to show you a comparison of the size of Lifetime chairs to a typical folding chair. So, today, I thought I'd go ahead and show you how a Lifetime Card Table compares to a typical card table. First of all, what you may not realize, without having two card tables to compare side-by-side, is that a typical card table is 34" square while the Lifetime card table is actually 37". As you can see by the photo, this provides quite a bit of extra useable surface area. This extra space certainly comes in handy when I seat four people around the table to eat, piece together large puzzles, and more. And, don't worry, the table is still lightweight and easy to carry at just 19lbs. Speaking of weightthe Lifetime card table is engineered for superior strength and durability. In fact, the Lifetime card...
