SPEAKING TRUTH

Sport has the power to change the world. It has the power to inspire. It has the power to unite people in a way that little else does. It speaks to youth in a language they understand. Sport can create hope where once there was only despair. It is more powerful than government in breaking down racial barriers.

EMA hopes to change the world by changing the youth sports narrative by cultivating each Student-Leader for a lifetime of achievement and meaningful impact (on and off the court). Our Student-Leaders not only work on their basketball skills year-round; they also develop more confidence, a stronger moral compass, character, commitment as well as discipline—ultimately preparing them to become well-rounded and vulnerable leaders.
