Who’s got next? You do.
UP is a non-profit that offers 3-on-3 pick-up basketball for boys & girls ages 12-15. No coaches or refs involved.
Since 2013 events have brought together young ballers from at least three different neighborhoods per game for fun, call-your-own fouls games. Healthy snacks, guest speakers and access to academic & career mentorship all included.
