On The Ball, Spinny

This upbeat, dynamic program features fun and amazing basketball skills while teaching the importance of education, respect, goal setting, determination and perseverance.

To keep the attention of the students throughout the performance, Spinny performes unique tricks such as balancing a basketball on a key held tightly between his teeth! He follows such acts with the message; "With the proper discipline and hard work, you can accomplish anything!" The program provides a variety of hands-on activities that directly involve large numbers of students. Using audience participation, Spinny persuades the studens to believe in themselves and to embrace positive thinking. Because of the love he has for kids, Spinny's mission is to perform for students in such a way as to get the message across on a variety of issues:

Importance of education Exercise, Healthy Eating Habits, Respecting yourself and others, Refrain from drugs and alcohol, Peer pressure and bullying.

Spencer, who is a 5-foot-4-inch trick basketball player, has actually used his size to help him with his work. "My size is an advantage. I relate well to the kids." There is definitely a message of hope in his hoop tricks, Spinny says, "Remember...study hard, respect everyone, refrain from drugs and alcohol, and always...Believe in yourself!"
