About 4Thirteen Basketball

Our purpose is to develop youth into individuals who take pride in being dedicated athletes, academic achievers, and productive members of their community. A personal sacrifice of effort and discipline in these areas are necessary components to achieving success in life.

3 core components of the organization to achieve success on and off the court.

Athletics: Sports is our method to teach discipline, teamwork, and mental toughness. Our goal is to prepare youth for his or her level of play through skills training, conditioning, and competition.

Mentoring: Youth are encouraged to set individual goals in all areas of life. As mentors, we can provide resources to assist with their academic success, career planning, and the transition into life after adolescence.

Community: We will teach the value of helping others by supporting good causes and serving in our community.

Donations are accepted to provide assistance to players needing financial assistance to participate in our basketball program.
