In the following pages, you will see the results of the hard work put forth by our organization and participants. You will also read about the tireless efforts exhibited all year long by our amazing supporters.!

!

In 2014, we maintained a high level of service and quality to our student-athletes in the Capital Region. Our accomplishments include expanding our Blackboards and Backboards StudentAthlete Academy to serve 60 middle school student-athletes; The Capital District Classic fielded three games and was preceded by a banquet for the 20 participants in the “Elite Game”. By expanding our programs, we not only improved our community base, but more importantly provided more meaningful outlets for our youth.!

!

Positive Impact New York, Inc is a place that allows student-athletes to reap the numerous benefits of participation in organized basketball events and aims to eliminate the negative influences and behaviors that frequently accompany youth basketball. At Positive Impact New York, we feel that the basketball court is a “classroom” in which we encourage our participants to develop and apply leadership skills by challenging them to demonstrate teamwork and dedication through competition. !

!

In 2014, we enhanced our program services and are continuing to identify new ways to inspire our Capital Region youth to become tomorrow’s leaders. To do this, we need your help. Whether it’s volunteering at our Blackboards & Backboards Student-Athlete Academy, or sponsoring our Capital District Classic, we will continue to scale Positive Impact New York with your support.!

!

I wish you all much happiness, great health and success in 2015. I am fortunate to serve you and our youth!!

!

Much Love,!

!

We at Positive Impact New York are committed to developing the total student-athlete. Wes Pluviose is the epitome of the total student-athlete. “Big Wes� played his high school basketball at Albany High School in Albany, NY. After graduation, Wes made the decision to attend Xavier University in New Orleans where he is studying to be a surgeon. Wes is a great example of a young man who was focused and committed to his goals. His focus will turn into a college degree and successful life.
