Adopt-A-Team is a mentorship program designed to enrich the lives of female athletes through various Mercury-led programs, on and off the court. Entering its 10th season, the program will not only provide the Greenway High School girls’ basketball team with much-needed equipment and uniforms, but also teach the girls important life skills such as writing resumes and internet safety. In addition, the program offers the team the opportunity to attend games, participate in private basketball clinics with Mercury players and coaches, and be included in volunteer opportunities throughout the summer.
