Reach & Teach are a charitable community sports organisation who focus on using sport as a tool to develop positive social, academic, physical and vocational change in young people, particularly from disadvantaged backgrounds. We are an umbrella organisation who currently manage and co-ordinate the development of some of the biggest and most successful community sports programs in England, while developing both nationally and internationally recognised competitions and events.
Understanding sports have the potential to attract, engage, and nurture the interests of young people, we strive to utilise that interest in introducing and developing skills that support development in all areas of their lives.
Basketball, in particular, is the sport of choice of inner-city youth. The fast, exciting, flamboyant style of the game and its social influence, provide the perfect platform to engage and relate to young people. Through our programs, we build upon these relationships and provide support and direction towards a positive end. Our agenda is to use the game of basketball to better prepare young people for the game of life, developing the characteristics and transferable life skills that contribute towards good citizenship, responsibility, respect and the pursuit of excellence and individual achievement in all the young people we reach.
