The current generation of parents, Generation X, grew up playing basketball in their driveway. They didn’t look at playing basketball as something their parents were making them do. They didn’t have fancy uniforms. And they didn’t play in a tournament halfway across the state every single weekend. They turned on their boom box and worked on their game in their driveway. The driveway was where they dreamed of winning their 8th grade city championship. The driveway was where they dreamed of starring for their high school team. The driveway was where they dreamed of hitting the last second shot to send their team to State. And the driveway is where they dreamed of playing against Dr. J, Magic, Larry, and Michael. The driveway was a place where dreams were born.

 

“The Driveway”, the home of Ryan Borowicz Basketball, is a place where dreams are born. Goals are set. Sweat is dripped. Limitations ignored. Character forged. And most importantly... young people are impacted by learning the value of hard work, perseverance, dealing with adversity, and the satisfaction that comes with becoming all you were meant to be, on and off the court.
