In the spring of 2021, Bowsman School received partial grant funding towards a new basketball system in their gym. The new system will include adjustable side nets that will move from eight to ten feet which makes improvements for younger students and children to learn proper shooting techniques.

The gym is typically used by physical education class for students Kindergarten to Grade 8, as well as Youth Sports Nights open to all youth and many birthdays/groups (pre-COVID). With current COVID regulations these additional hoops will also allow Bowsman School to properly space students in the gym.

The Community Foundation of Swan Valley is proud to support local projects that are aimed at bettering the future and development of our local youth!
