CARLSBAD, Calif., Nov. 11, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- SKLZ, the leader in innovative sport training equipment and programs, today announced that a portion of proceeds from every Pro Mini Hoop Rebound sold will be donated to the Challenged Athletes Foundation's Operation Rebound program. Operation Rebound supports injured military and first responders through sports and fitness by funding equipment, training and competition expenses. SKLZ and the Challenged Athletes Foundation share a belief that involvement in sports increases self-esteem, encourages independence and enhances quality of life.
"At SKLZ, we aim to prepare athletes to be ready for their sport," said SKLZ president Brian Enge. "We are proud to honor and support those who have served or do serve our country to help them achieve their physical goals."
Featuring a military-inspired digital camouflage design, pro-grade backboard and break-away steel rim, the Pro Mini Hoop Rebound is perfect for the bedroom or game room. The shatterproof backboard and padded backing also protect any door or wall it is mounted to, making it a great gift this holiday season.
SKLZ is also working with former NBA player and sports broadcaster, Bill Walton to encourage kids and families to honor and thank the vets this Veteran's Day. "Operation Rebound continues to shine a light on the veterans that have served, and it's for this reason that my partnership with SKLZ has been incredibly important," said Walton.
