Harlem Globetrotter Talks About Bullying



Bookmark and Share

When you think about the Harlem Globetrotters, you probably think about their amazing basketball tricks and skills. However, that was just a small part of Hammer Harrison's presentation to a group of kids at Star Performance Center in Sioux Falls. His main focus was teaching these kids how to stand up for themselves and others in bullying situations.

“It’s up to you to do something about it. Most kids don’t even know they’re being bullied, so it’s important that their friends maybe help out and see that bullying is going on,” says Harrison.

He breaks his teaching down into ABCs: Action, Bravery, and Compassion. He says these three things are key in stopping the bullying.

"We teach them to be brave, not only being able to stand up for yourself; but being able to stand up for others as well," says Harrison.

Lacy Dominiack, a gym coach at Star Peformance Center, says this is a great addition to a lesson she's been teaching her students for a while now.

"A lot of kids just this week signed a pledge this week against bullying. It was a big huge poster in the hall and a big group of kids took a picture of it and stuff like that," says Dominiack.
     
But teaching kids about bullying isn't the only thing Harrison will be doing while visiting Sioux Falls.

"We like to do programs, you know, maybe a smile patrol where we go to a hospital, and our only goal is to put a smile on some kid's face," says Harrison.

Harrison hopes doing this will make a difference while visiting Sioux Falls.

The Harlem Globetrotters will be performing this upcoming Thursday, April 4 at 7 p.m. at the Sioux Falls Arena. In fact, some of the cheer and dance teams from Star Performance Center will also be performing.
