Reach Beyond Basketball is a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit organization.  The mission of Reach Beyond Basketball is to teach young people the concept of "reaching beyond" what is comfortable and easy in order to reach their full potential on the court, in the classroom, and in life in general.

Reach Beyond Basketball was founded by Lenny Myers, Head Boys Varsity Basketball Coach and Teacher at Kennedy High School.  The formation of Reach beyond began in 2010 with the help of a group of other educators/former collegiate basketball players.  


"Becoming teachers allowed us to become mentors to a diverse population of young people who looked up to us and who were eager to learn.  This is where the vision came from to take what we were doing to the next level.  We use basketball as a tool to instill important life skills that are necessary in order to be successful on and off the court".  -Coach Myers
