TRANSFORMATION50 is TBF’s summer camp that combines basketball training with life skills to prepare 50 young men for the future.

The four-day camp is designed to give young men who play basketball in middle and high school, tools for success on the court, but more importantly off the court. Basketball players ranging in age from 11- 15 will participate in sessions that teach appropriate decorum, financial responsibility, communications, conflict resolution, civic responsibility, leadership –and of course, basketball. This game plan is to help young men grow into productive citizens prepared to lead the charge in positively changing their neighborhoods and communities where ever life takes them. The camp is July 10-13, 2017 at Ridgeway High School. For this inaugural camp, middle and high school basketball coaches in Shelby County Schools are being asked to recommend participants and should receive nomination packets no later than April 1, 2017. If you are a Shelby County Schools middle or high school basketball coach and have not received a packet by April 1, please email


TBF is looking for session leaders, sponsors and partnerships for TRANSFORMATION50. If you would like to be considered to offer a life skills session during the TRANSFORMATION50 camp, we would love to hear from you. We are also looking for corporate and individual sponsors interested in partnering with TBF to ensure we provide these young men, most from under resourced parts of our community, tools needed to succeed despite their current circumstances. There are many ways of supporting this game plan. Download sponsorship form below.
