The Wasatch Youth Center, a juvenile secure facility, has been thrilled by the attention of the Utah Starzz. The residents of Wasatch were extremely excited to have Denise Taylor (Coach "T") come to the facility as a motivational speaker. Utah Starzz guard Tammi Reiss also visited the center to instruct a basketball clinic and help demonstrate the use of teamwork and what one can accomplish by setting goals and sticking with them.

Taylor spoke to the kids for over an hour and was understanding of the students' needs and told them that it is possible to rise above poor choices and become successful citizens and role models. Reiss spent time with the students on two occasions. She instructed both boys and girls on basketball fundamentals that will help make them successful on and off the court.After observing Coach "T" and Tammi for only a short time it became apparent that the Utah Starzz are a "class act" who care about youth and the community in which they live.

The Wasatch Youth Center wishes to thank Scott Miller for coordinating arrangements and bringing the students and these fine women together. It was an experience that made an impact in the lives of youth.

Good luck. Go, Starzz.
