Community/Youth Initiatives

Full Court Press: Prep for Success

Full Court Press: Prep for Success is a one-day youth basketball and mentoring clinic for underserved boys and girls, ages eight to 18, held in cities across the United States and abroad. The program is led by the National Basketball Retired Players Association (NBRPA) with direct support from the NBA and housed under the Jr. NBA and NBA Cares brand. Full Court Press is designed to introduce participating youth to positive role models in both basketball and life, with equal time spent on the basketball court, in the classroom and at a mentoring roundtable as part of a robust and meaningful curriculum.
