By replacing basketball nets, revitalizing basketball courts and parks, hosting basketball tournaments and clinics, and offering a variety of trainings, events, we are able to bring a new energy to neighborhoods that have been long neglected. Through our programs, we reach out and embrace our your community leaders by providing them with a sense of strength, pride and hope for their future.

netz 4 Life (n4L) continues to partner with Santa Ana & Tustin Parks & Recreations Departments in an effort to continue to provide our 5 week Educational Basketball Clinics (EBCs) throughout the entire year at designated outdoor park facilities to more at-risk youth. We are diligently reaching out to individuals, corporations, foundations and team sponsors to assist in our next “Leave No Rim Netless” Basketball Court Revitalization Campaign Project along with continuing to expand our EBCs. We are fortunate to be working with our partnering cities and are continuing to collaborate for future opportunities to be able to reach out to more at-risk youth.

Our educational basketball programs will focus on the fundamentals of basketball while emphasizing: teamwork, respect, dedication, and perseverance. We will also designate allotted times throughout each program which will center on the fundamentals of life, while emphasizing: character, integrity, attitude, adversity and success. Our Organization holds no tryouts and we welcome any and all youth who are interested in basketball, being physically active, willing to learn, and having fun. Every netz 4 Life participant will gain the confidence along with the mental and physical preparation to become successful in life!



netz 4 Life (n4L) credos of “Reaching Out - One Neighborhood at a Time” & “Leave No Rim Netless” are seen with team and community partner unity, which increases awareness of the importance of keeping at risk youth active and providing them with the hope to pursue their dreams. Revitalizing basketball courts is a small, yet intricate portion of the overall n4L mission and vision.
