Let us start by introducing ourselves. WE GOT HANDLES ACADEMY CORP is a nonprofit organization dedicated to creating a safe and fun, yet structured training environment to give children access to affordable, quality Basketball training while enriching our local community with services and youth activities. The Vision for our organization came about through the life experience of our President, Coach Titus.
"Growing up, I had a love and a passion for Basketball. I was always playing, whether it was in my yard, at school, or at the Community Centers in my city, but access to extra-curricular training was not an option for me due to financial barriers. I witnessed other kids around me going to Camps and Clinics, taking part in personal training sessions to get that coveted spot on the school basketball team and felt like I was somewhat left behind because we couldn't afford it. But that didn't stop me! I kept going until I achieved my goal! Unfortunately, some kids don't keep going and they allow their circumstance to dictate their future. That's where the WE GOT HANDLES ACADEMY Family comes in!" - Coach Titus
Our Program reaches kids age 4-17yrs that have a desire to learn the game of Basketball. It doesn't matter the skill level, we make elite Basketball training accessible to everyone! Our program focuses not only on training but youth development. Our work is about equipping our youth with the keys to becoming successful in the game and life through consistent training, team-building skills, community service opportunities, and scholarships.
