City of Durant
DURANT – Nancy Lieberman Charities in partnership with Sport Court has teamed with First United Bank and Dream Team Women’s Networking Group to give Durant a brand new Kids & Cops Dream Court. The new Dream Court will be located at Carl Albert Memorial Park.
“So thankful for First United Bank and the Dream Team’s commitment and passion to give a Dream Court to Durant and their children,” said Basketball Hall of Famer, two-time Olympian, and now Big3 Head Coach, Nancy Lieberman. “We couldn’t think of a better group to team up with to help build relationships between kids and community law enforcement.”
“The Dream Court is an outstanding concept and an ideal opportunity for Police and Community to merge,” Durant police chief David Houser said. “I look forward to the interaction between Durant’s officers and Durant’s children and know it will build trust and confidence for years to come.”
The Dream Court™ is 35-by-65 feet with two brand new basketball goals, and features a high-performance PowerGame™ surface from Sport Court® in signature Kids & Cops dark blue and steel blue colors. Its centerpiece is the Dream Courts logo, flanked by the brands of all four supporting organizations.
More than two million youth play on Dream Courts in the U.S. and Sport Court has been the partner to Nancy Lieberman Charities since the first court installation in 2010. A total of 58 Dream Courts™ have been built to-date across the nation with each court serving approximately 100 youth per day, helping improve the lives of more than 2.1 million kids a year.
A dedication ceremony was held on Wednesday, June 13 at Carl Albert Memorial Park, located at 1301 Gail Farrell Dr. Following the ribbon cutting, children participated in an open-court “shoot around” with Lieberman and members from the Durant Police Department.
