After a successful opening weekend in Coral Springs, which saw the South Florida Gold American Basketball Association team secure two wins, the team now travels to Royal Palm Beach with games Saturday, Nov. 9 at 7 p.m. and Sunday, Nov. 10 at 4 p.m. The games will be played at Royal Palm Beach High School.
The South Florida Gold team is making a difference in the communities where they are playing by supporting local charities such as the Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital, the Boys & Girls Club, Wheels for Kids and Forgotten Soldiers Outreach. The team is coached by former NBA all-star Robert Reid, who is not just teaching basketball to his players, but also teaching life skills.
The players recently visited the children at the Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital as part of a reverse trick-or-treat program. Their appearance was a slam dunk with the kids, as the children had an opportunity to spend time with the players and enjoy themselves. The players are going to be interacting with many civic organizations to deliver positive messages and to act as ambassadors for professional basketball.
