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!

Hot Chocolate Delight!
Is there anything more fun in the wintertime than coming in after an afternoon of fun in the snow and enjoying a cup of hot cocoa? It is definitely something we look forward to . . . especially if we are hosting family or close friends. We have a delicious hot chocolate recipe we use that I would like to share. Offering an assortment of fun additives to your cocoa makes it even more memorable! You may also want to consider serving the hot chocolate outside. A Lifetime adjustable-height folding table makes set-up quick and easy whether you are setting it up inside or out. Most of us dont have a thermal Airpot dispenser kicking around the house, so a large thermos or a crock-pot set to low will make sure that your cocoa will still stay warm so you wont have to miss out on that last sled run down the hill. Creamy Hot Chocolate ...
iPhone Cases, Basketball Hoops, and Video Reviews
My husband and I made the big leap a about a month ago. We bought iPhones. I have to say, as reserved as I was about making a jump to such a trendy gadget of which I thought I wouldnt really need, I LOVE it! It is soooo user friendly and the voice control feature is astonishing. It is so cool to do a Google search just by talking to your phone, then simply tap the phone number Google pulls up to call the place you were trying to find... or tap the Google map to get GPS directions! Amazing. But, of course, we couldnt just simply purchase iPhones and be done. Oh, no. Naturally, we had to find snazzy cases, too. After running around to more than five different stores, I narrowed my choice down to the Speck Candy Shell and the iFrogz Luxe. I loved the fun two-tone colors and unmatched durability of the Candy Shell, yet the iFrog...
