Back2TheBasic teams consist of young men and women between the ages of 8 – 18. Our decision to concentrate on that age group was detrimental for many reasons.
Rural area youth are victimized by many elements in their surroundings. We wanted to provide an outlet where they could feel safe, and would be safe from inner city violence.
“As a man, and a father, I refuse to give up on our youth. I believe that my life’s mission is in alignment with caring for, mentoring, and providing resources that help our young men and women access their greatest potential.”
Back2TheBasic “Team Dynasty” is comprised of a very special group of young people who want nothing more than to be a success story. On a daily basis, these kids work very hard in practice, games, school, home, and in their communities. In-spite of the violence that plagues the inner city, each and everyone of them possess a positive outlook on life. They not only strive to be different, but they strive to make a difference… in the world.
We continually add additional content from our games, events, fundraisers, press conferences, road trips, community outreach efforts, barbecues, etc,.
In a time where many of our youth feel their lives have become complicated. I have made it my personal obligation to help uncomplicated things by taking them “Back to the Basics”. This campaign is to stress the simplicity and adherence to fundamental principles for life through basketball.
My appeal is to anyone that has a burden to help as many young men and women get off the streets. Partner with me as I build this basketball/mentor camp. The funds will be used to pay for uniforms, traveling expenses, tournaments, gym rentals, insurance, and a 15 passenger van. ANY donation is appreciated.
