3X3 World Tour Range final   2 ab 3
Creating pathways for positive change


                 Note from the founder               portrait

I was able to turn my life around as a young man, which affected not only my family but many communities here in New Zealand. I was able to overcome and succeed. What was the trigger that changed my life, do I have an obligation to reach out to others, do we as New Zealanders have an obligation to reach out and help our youth, how did a whole Community change over a game of Basketball, why did a patch member hand his patch in, what inspired a businessman to give and to commit his funds, time and energy to a struggling Community.

It’s time for change

  For many young Kiwis, the lure of gang culture can be overwhelming. But one former Auckland constable thinks there's a better way, and it involves basketball on wheels.
