Our Mission:

Northwest Ballers is a non profit organization dedicated to providing underprivileged youth with the opportunity to play basketball and build the body, mind, and spirit. We believe that every child deserves a chance to pursue their passion, regardless of financial constraints. We believe that nurturing their talent and fostering their personal development will set them up for success in all aspects of life.

Our History:

Our organization was founded by Calvin Parker in 2023. Inspired by his son, Xzavier Parker, whom died in a fire. Calvin was compelled to bring fire safety awareness to the community. Calvin observed that many talented young athletes lacked the necessary resources to participate in organized basketball.  By joining the program, these young ballers not only learn the fundamentals of basketball but will also focus on improving literature skills as well as important life skills such as teamwork, dedication, respect and discipline through our integrated book club.  Weekly achievements awards for progress to promote the drive for learning.
