The Greensboro Swarm, the NBA Development League affiliate of the Charlotte Hornets, announced the organization’s social responsibility initiatives will be centered on education and wellness in the Triad community. The two pillars will serve as the cornerstone for the team’s philanthropic activities and social projects during the inaugural 2016-17 season.

“As an organization, we are very excited about giving back and implementing programs that benefit our community,” said Swarm President Steve Swetoha. “Just like our parent team in Charlotte, we want to create initiatives with a positive and long-standing impact. Meeting with a number of local leaders over the past few months has given us great insight on how we can best assist our community beyond the basketball court and that will be through programs that focus on education and wellness.”

The Swarm’s first official community event will take place on Thursday, Oct.27, when the coaching staff will conduct a basketball clinic at the Boys & Girls Club of Greensboro’s brand new community center that opens this month. Coming just days before the start of the team’s train-ing camp and two weeks before the inaugural season tips off on November 12, the clinic will focus on the importance of staying physically active and developing healthy habits through sports like basketball.

In addition to its own projects centered around education and wellness, the Swarm will also engage the community through annual NBA D-League Cares events and programs. For more information about how the Swarm is involved in the community or to inquire about donation items for non-profits, visit
