Hats Off! Program

“Hats Off” is a 3-part mentorship program that caters to high school women’s basketball seniors. These women are nominated by their coach(es) as outstanding individuals that ‘led the charge’ on and off the court. The program’s goal is to provide a memorable experience for those sidelined by the current pandemic in the space in which we excel: in women, basketball and business. 

The program consists of the three following:
