Since the coronavirus hit our community we have, together with a lot of other non-profits been hit very hard. Very few are are looking to sign up for our camps and training programs at the moment. Our programs are normally very well attended and we have a positive mindset in regards to the future BUT right now our staff will be hurting without help to bridge this gap. Thank you so much for your consideration!
We are striving to make a difference in the lives of children by providing positive role models and excellent coaching. We use the game of basketball to mentor youth and make a difference in our community. Since we were founded in August 2012, more than 5000 youth in ages 3-22 have taken part in one or several of our programs. Over the last few years we have offered scholarships for kids in need at a total value of more than $12000 per year.
We appreciate and value the partnerships that we’ve established with Chick-Fil-A, Dick’s Sporting Goods, Town of Huntersville and other local businesses. We are also certified youth development organization through USA Basketball and JR. NBA.
Our desire is to help others realize their potential in the game we know and love. We feel a calling to share our passion and knowledge from our many years of experience. Our Mission: To inspire and coach our students to Dream Big, Work Hard and Stay Humble. We believe we will find success when we: Dream Big – Our attitude determines our experience. We will set our sights high. When setbacks occur, we will stay confident in our abilities. We set goals and define our vision to mark our path forward. We travel that path with small steps, maintaining a focus on our process. Work Hard – Our level of effort is 100% controllable and entirely up to us. It directly reflects our engagement and exponentially affects our outcome. Stay Humble – We value individuality and celebrate unique gifts and talents. We remember where we came from. We give genuine thanks to those who have helped us along the way and honor them with commitment to pay it forward.
We are looking to help children/youth develop in to great members of our community. We want them to improve both physically, psychologically, socially and culturally. We are looking to create future leaders. We promote a drug-free environment and an environment free from racism and abuse and where the focus is on integrity and character. We encourage academics through a supportive approach.
