Professional Sports League

Basketball is the second most popular sport in the world behind only soccer and attracts a young, affluent and growing demographic. In the US the NBA and NCAA are “sibling rivals” in the basketball industry and compete for fans, talent and media dollars. They have created a yawning gap between the amateur and professional basketball business that can be filled by the Freedom Basketball League. In addition there is a need and demand to produce a better model for training, educating and mentoring talented young men where they can maximize their potential as athletes and maturing young people.
