9 YEARS STRONG
Since its inception in 2011, Weems Week has been a staple in the Crittenden County community. Started by native professional basketball player, Sonny Weems, thIS week of community service has been used to inspire and motivate the youth to excel in sports, school, and in the community. Each year, the Sonny Weems Basketball Academy provides intense basketball camps to teach the fundamentals of the game, as well as positive reinforcement through mentorship. At the end of the week, backpacks filled with school supplies are given away to jumpstart the upcoming school year for elementary-aged students. As of 2018, WEEMS Week has directly impacted over 2,000 youth in the area and inspired thousands more! In 2019, The Crittenden County Winner’s Ball will be added to the lineup to recognize and celebrate the student-athletes in the community. Founder Sonny Weems is committed to making his hometown better!
