    In the summer of 2019, it was officially announced that the Blasz Elementary School in Phoenix, Arizona would be replaced by a new school honouring a true American Hero.

    Patrick Tillman, an American professional football player, left his lucrative athletic career in June 2002 following the September 11th terrorist attacks and enlisted in the United States Army along with his brother Kevin.

    Following an initial deployment to Iraq, both Patrick and Kevin entered Ranger School and graduated in the fall of 2003. Patrick was redeployed and in April of 2004, tragically was reported to have been killed by friendly fire.

    Although operating during a time where travel has been drastically reduced, we were pleased that one of our recent projects took us through the beautiful Canadian province of Québec. Heading east of our headquarters, we travelled to beautiful Sept-Îles, which as its name would suggest, is made up of seven main islands in the Gulf of the Saint Lawrence River.

    As one of the only locales in the region with a paved connection to the remainder of the province’s road network, the town is also home to a number of major iron companies. Sept-Îles has produced a number of NHL players including the great Guy Charbonneau and is the subject of the popular Gordon Lightfoot song “Seven Island Suite”.

    With the goal of medium to long-term recovery efforts, the Ontario Trillium Foundation has created a one-time fund to support the non-profit sector in the province of Ontario. With the focus of providing recovery funding for those hit hardest by the COVID-19 pandemic, the program was built to provide proper funding for these organizations to both recover and rebuild from the catastrophic impact of the global pandemic.

    As an agency of the province, the Ontario Trillium Foundation (OTF) is one of Canada’s leading granting foundations, awarding $108 million worth of funding in 2019 alone. With an investment strategy that is founded on building stronger and more connected communities, the OTF has been investing in the province for over 30 years.

    The Resilient Communities Fund aims to provide flexible financing spread over two separate deadlines, allowing for ample time to address the needs of each applying organization and support them where they need it most.

    As anyone can reasonably expect, there has been a lot of talk about the 2020-21 school year and athletic programming. While few know how this year will shape up, there are plans currently being put in place in states and provinces across North America to ensure a safe return to school.

    With the outbreak of COVID-19 earlier this year, schools and countless numbers of businesses were instantly shuttered in the interest of public safety. Following these abrupt closures came a lot of questions, not only about how students would complete the school year, but what this could potentially mean for next year’s students.

    Choosing the right outdoor basketball wall mount system to suit your needs is paramount to successfully equipping your court, whether for a school yard, community centre, or otherwise. However, with such a wide range of hoops to choose from, it can become overwhelming. Here, we will offer a few tips on what you should consider before making a purchase.
