Never give up, great things take time
The kids at Carroll Academy on the basketball team, had a lot of things going on at home that probably made it hard for them to do anything in their life. The coaches at Carroll Academy helped them persevere through things and tried to make the basketball team a positive and trustworthy place for them to come to. These teen girls faced many challenges. A lot of their parents were alcoholics, a lot of their parents were abusing drugs, their parents didn’t have a lot of money and came home late from work, and some of the girls had anger issues or bipolar disorders. Parents are suppose to be there to take care you. These girls never had that. Another problem that these girls faced was that their basketball team never won. They went on a losing streak. They would lose so bad, that their score would 104-10. But they still had that motivation to keep going and persevere even when they lost so much. These girls mindsets were the only thing that got them through their basketball season. With things being so hard for them at their house, and then coming to basketball and losing all the time. How could they do that? They persevered through everything and just keep going. That basketball team and the coaches were probably the closest things that they had to family. But somehow, they used their adversities to make it and persevere through it all.
