Welcome to The Grass Roots Foundation

At Grass Roots Foundation our efforts are aimed at supporting high school and post-graduate student-athletes in academics, athletics, and personal development for a smooth transition into collegiate academics and sports. We are visionaries with a clear vision. We envision successful student-athletes with a repertoire of critical thinking skills, leadership skills, and explosive power development that can be applied to everyday life situations and environments.

Our approach is a team approach. As a team, we strive to meet the diverse needs of student-athletes and successfully transition them into collegiate sports. Our team provides dynamic synergy and a solid support system for the student-athlete to obtain educational, athletic, socio-emotional and career development support. Our partner school’s challenging curriculum and learning environment equips students with developing critical thinking skills, a cooperative attitude, and model healthy lifestyles that can be used on and off the basketball court. Our partners provide functional strength training and skill development with highly accomplished coaches that enhances the student-athlete’s performance in the sport. As we work together, students learn to balance the multiple responsibilities of being a student, an athlete, and a leader.
