The HBSML Charitable Organization will raise the level of competition in the community, which will raise confidence in the youth, all while teaching perseverance, work ethic, sportsmanship, and so much more. The biggest thing HBSML Charitable Organization will focus on is inclusivity. Those kids in the community that cannot afford training will be met with scholarship opportunities that allows them to take part in everything that will be offered.


The mission of the HBSML Charitable Organization is to help foster contributing members of the community through the use of basketball. The youth will learn valuable life lessons from the sport that they will apply directly to their everyday life.


To give every youth an opportunity to compete and grow as a player and person.

Placing Youth on the Path to Success

Team HQ basketball comes directly from HBSML Charitable Foundation (How basketball saved my life), and was created to give kids a chance to play basketball, but also learn life lessons through the game of basketball. The club has grown tremendously, and continues to serve the youth and their families in the Norman, Oklahoma City, and surrounding areas.

School is a vehicle for your destination

You are not alone, I hated school too! I hated school because I didn't understand how to use school. Once I was introduced to basketball, it was then I made the shift to looking at school differently because I had my eyes set on something bigger than myself. How are you choosing to look at it? What do you aspire to be? School is a vehicle, will you let it drive you to your destination?
