Reaching Your Dream Foundation and IRT Announce Partnership
Danville, CA | September 16, 2015 – The Reaching Your Dream Foundation (RYDF), a tax-exempt nonprofit supporting the personal and professional development of young athletes, in particular racquetball players, has announced a new and exciting partnership with the International Racquetball Tour (IRT). Beginning with the 2015-2015 IRT season opening Ghost of Georgetown Novasors Kansas City IRT ProAm and under the leadership of Rocky Carson, RYDF will be identifying selected players who face economic challenges in attending IRT events and will help them with housing and other costs associated with attending the events.
As part of the Mission of the Reaching Your Dream Foundation, the goal is to help these young players find success both on and off the court. By having close access to and mentorship from racquetball legend and multi World Champion Rocky Carson, RYDF will begin to monitor the success these players have in learning to use social media and face-to-face interactions with fans and potential sponsors to begin forging a career pathway for themselves in the sport of racquetball and life.
“Racquetball has been a significant part in my life. I grew up playing and competing and have been fortunate enough to play at the highest levels, which has helped me provide a living for my family over the last 16 years. My goal in partnering with the Reaching Your Dream Foundation is to help younger players have access to the same opportunities that I have enjoyed. I look forward to working with these young athletes this season.” says Carson.
