EEYB is a promoter of higher education and encourages it’s participates to maintain a satisfactory grade point average. In order to ensure the children of EEYB are given every opportunity to succeed in academics, we are asking that each registered coach request a copy of their players’ interims or report card. We also ask that each registered coach promote and encourage their players to participate in the EEYB tutoring program if the player is falling below a “C” average.

Pride and dedication to education and growth, reflects our concern about our children’s future and it’s also appealing to the Historically Black Colleges & Universities we represent.
