Purpose | Our Mission and vision

We want to empower a generation of “Guardian Ballers” that are happy and healthy, so they can transform the world around them.

Guardian Ballers focuses mainly on young people and adults aged 10-25 to empower them to BALL-BE-BETTER.

Our Mission
  • BALL | Enabling engagement, progression and enjoyment in the Sport of Basketball.
  • BE | Educating about mental and emotional well-being, exploring the value of character and identity, as a foundation for impacting current and future life circumstances.
  • BETTER | Facilitating practical experiences with local charities and community organisations, to discover how to make the world better.

Power | Our Impact

Young People and Adults, aged 10-25, attended a 4+ week or 4+ hour GB journey (average over two years)
Reported that our GB journey positively impacted their wellbeing and physical activity levels (average over two years)
Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic backgrounds (average over two years)
30% +
Receiving support through Free School Meals, Additional Needs Provision and H.A.F. eligible (average over two years)
Girls and Young Women are a valued proportion of the Guardian Ballers Community (average over two years)
I felt overwhelmed that I could have such an impact on the lives of so many young people. My confidence to communicate has grown exponentially since I started. Initially I was so anxious to speak to young people but now I feel more comfortable to speak up and help young people engage in the Guardian Ballers Sessions!
