The Mobile Bay Tornados are devoted to establishing community relationships as well as promoting students to achieve academic success. The Tornados have established a program that partners with the Mobile County School System to encourage students to meet their reading requirements set by their teachers. The team, players, staff and coaches, visit schools to speak to the students about the importance of reading and doing well in school.
Each assembly is extremely interactive and allows students to discuss books and valuable life skills with our team. Additionally, the program includes game vouchers for students and their families, who meet the reading requirements mandated by their instructors. The Books for Baskets program has proven to be incredibly beneficial to both students and players and is a very exciting way to promote academic success.
The Books for Baskets program is setup for the Tornados to awarded the visiting Schools 75 tickets to use as an incentive for students meeting reading goals. It is an important program to the entire Tornados organization and a team favorite.
