Clinic for Operation Breakthrough – June 2015

Operation Breakthrough is a 501 c 3 nonprofit organization that provides early child care and education as well as social services to families in Kansas City. It is the largest single-site early education child care and social services facility in the state of Missouri serving over 400 children daily from the urban core.

 The mission of Operation Breakthrough is to help children who are living in poverty develop to their fullest potential by providing them a safe, loving and educational environment.

Operation Breakthrough also strives to support and empower the children’s families through advocacy, referral services and emergency aid.

This summer they included opportunities for their summer school kids to learn a variety sports. This is a fantastic opportunity to give kids the chance to learn a sport or activity they may otherwise not be able to get involved with.

On June 15, 2015 the Kansas City Disc Golf Development Group were excited to introduce disc golf to 48 3rd through 5th graders in the Operation Breakthrough program. Most of them for the first time.

We setup 3 portable baskets as stations, split up the kids in groups and taught them the basics of holding and gripping the disc, putting and approach shots. We ended the clinic with a ring of fire that was a big hit with the kids.

Those in attendance: LaRon Harris, Rhonda Crosby, Ben Crosby and Hal Kurz. The Kansas City Ultimate team also provided a clinic for the kids the same day.

We want to thank Operation Breakthrough for having us out for a fantastic day and to allow us to share our sport with the kids. We hope to do this again next summer.
