Man UP – What does it mean to MAN UP? It means to step up and learn how to take care of your responsibilities as a young man. It means to pursue your dreams and goals despite the real-life challenges that will most assuredly come your way. It means being able to use your passion to make a difference in the lives of others. The MAN UP program helps young men develop real-life skills through the practical fundamentals of basketball. Young men learn how to apply a positive, respectful and resilient attitude to their daily school and home life experience. They learn key life lessons that will motivate them to build healthy relationships and believe in themselves.

He says ‘Teaching young men to stand up for what is right even if they have to stand alone is what it means to MAN UP.’
