Dr. Joe has been a proud sponsor of Grant Youth Basketball since 2010.
Grant Youth Basketball (formerly the Laurelhurst Basketball Club) is a non-profit organization, committed to providing opportunities for boys and girls in the Grant Community to develop basketball skills in a sportsmanship-first environment. Founded by Coach Bernadette Diepenbrock, GYB follows her philosophy to "play hard and have fun!" This is a philosophy we embrace here at Braces by Dr. Joe!
Starting out as a league of 40 players in 2009, GYB has grown to serve hundred of kids each year through it's co-ed summer league (grades 5-8), skills clinics, and the Jr. Generals program (grades K - 4).
Dr. Joe has been GYB's longest standing and most loyal sponsor. Through his generous support (and the support of other locally owned businesses) GYB is able to offer fee assistance to students in need, so that GYB has never had to turn a player away from it's programs. GYB also provides much needed support to the Men's and Women's Basketball programs at Grant High School.
