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.
