The NBYMP is a game-changing resource for athletes, families and communities through the game of basketball. We have some exciting things in the works and fired up about bringing our ideas to life.”
Kevin Wilson, founder of the NBYMP, says he is excited for this partnership with Wilson, a prestigious brand that has helped to shape the global basketball community for many years.
“They have a passion for youth development which aligns perfectly with our core values,” Wilson said. We couldn’t be more excited for this partnership and we look forward to many years of positive growth together.
