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.
Good Health Initiatives

Discuss finances with our youth. Knowing how to manage your finance at an early age will be very beneficial to our youth. We discuss items from budgeting, how to balance a checking account to what stocks are included on the US major stock market.
