Equal Shot = Empower. Launch. Create. 

Our mission is to develop & launch notable leaders & creative problem solvers into the community. We create access within diverse communities, helping to equip them with the necessary skills to remain on a successful life trajectory. 

A lack of resources is the most significant determinant for a child's life trajectory. 

A lack of resources =  a lack of access to quality programs for development

48% of children living in the southern U.S. live in low income families. 39% of Leon County students live in low income families.

Diverse spaces allow our youth to develop well-rounded perspectives to:

Culture, Leadership, Education, Athletics & More

In most cases, team sports provide a much needed outlet for at-risk youth. They provide students opportunities to safely socialize, relieve stress and build confidence. As well as increases academic success and develops critical thinking skills, teaches teamwork and problem solving skills, builds resilience, teaches discipline and leadership skills. All of these correlate to lower rates of anxiety, depressions, smoking, substance abuse suicidal thoughts and attempts, etc. 

Trauma is also a critical factor of influence in a youth's development, our Academy also provides access to emotional and mental health with experiential learning to increase success in healthy relationship building, processing trauma all the way up to assisting parents in learning how to work with their student/athlete on negative behaviors, learn positive social skills and coping mechanisms. 

Join our FAMILY by joining our BACKCOURT.

In basketball, this term refers to the team's guards. The ones who run the show, the players who are the backbone and engine for the team. A team cannot flourish without a strong backcourt in the same way.
