We aim to continue the work we are doing within our community to help change and mould the lives of these young adults

by Michael Martin in London, England, United Kingdom

Myself and my team of coaches are committed to providing these young adults with the opportunity to achieve their ambitions, goals and dreams through sport and exercise. Using the discipline of basketball the skills they acquire also help tackle with their day to day battles of being dragged wayward based on the environment they are growing up in while living in Brent and near by areas  

Having been born and raised in Brent I am very aware of the distractions that are present. I was lucky enough to find a sport that I totally committed to, which allowed me the opportunity to be successful enough and earn a living from doing what I loved.

I was fortunate enough to play professionally for many years at home in the UK and in Europe, also represented  England on many occasions, most memorable event was  at the commonwealth games in 2006 (Australia) where we won the bronze medal!

The end goal is to put these young adults on a pathway to success while using this sport that has given me so much and allowed me to realise how valuable the tools you acquire from training, playing and learning has on the individual in today’s society. 

Let's make 'Brent Blazers Basketball Development Project' happen
