The B.A.L.L. Foundation’s mission is to create social and life-changing experiences for youth ages 7-17 by providing a learning environment that enhances life skills through the influence of basketball. Through basketball camps, lectures and training classes, children are equipped with essential life skills that are instrumental in addressing core problems by maintaining good health, education and self-esteem. We provide children with lessons in strengthening math and reading skills, as well as customized plans for diet, nutrition and exercise. We also address the problem of childhood obesity and enrich the lives of young individuals by providing a fun learning environment.
