Another great Boca Hoops Season ends!
See you at registration this spring. Dates and times will be posted soon.
Twenty years ago, co-founder and director of Boca Hoops, Dr. Jody Forstot lobbied for a field house at Sugar Sand Park. After a year of presenting the case for need of more gym space for Boca Hoops and other indoor activities, the Greater Boca Raton Beach and Parks commissioners answered with our present “state of the art”, Field House at Sugar Sand Park, that Boca Hoops calls “home”.
On October 20th, Jody Forstot went back to the Greater Boca Raton Beach and Parks commissioners and pleaded a case for a second field house. He presented the fact that Boca Hoops enrolls over 1500 children between recreation, travel and special needs basketball programs that is run by Boca Hoops.Dr. Forstot told commissioners that the High-Five Basketball program, the program for special needs children and young adults, has a “wait list”. The latter, Dr Forstot calls an “unconscionable” thing to deal with. Dr Forstot also asked the commissioners to relocate the present outdoor courts that are on the “temporary” parking lot area. These courts have rims that are lower than the normal 10 foot baskets, for the many youngers that play “below” the rim, These courts are an essential practice facility for Boca Hoops. And last, Dr Forsrtot requested better lighting in the parking lots at Sugar Sand Park and outside the Field House. He also offered his suggestions on the design of the “new” field house facility, as he did when designing the original Field House.
Dr Forstot left the meeting hoping to hear from the commissioners at the next Beach and Parks meeting in November or December. On his way home that night, the commissioners called Dr Forstot to let him know they had approved plans for s “second” field house. OMG!
To the commissioners: Steve Engel, Dennis Frisch, Robert K. Rollins, Jr, Earl Starkoff, Susan Vogelgesang, and GBRBPD attorney, Arthur C. Koski; Boca Hoops wants to thank them all!
Boca Hoops will keep you updated on the phase 2 Field House Project.
