Carry A Basketball Not A Blade (CABNAB) Project.
This has been a fantastic season for NASSA and I am sure it can only get better as we enter the play-offs. But our success costs money and this year we have seen our funding fall yet again.
So we have decided to get out and use our sporting talents to raise money.
We have teamed up with our partner the BIg Change Foundation to run the London Marathon to raise money for our Carry A Basketball Not A Blade (CABNAB) Project.
Anthony Okereafor, NASSA player and project creator has taken up the challenge and is running on the the streets of Newham on his daily training sessions.
Do say hello if you see him but more importantly please take the time to click on the link below and make a donation to reward his extraordinary efforts.
Every penny we raise makes a difference to a young life in Newham so please give generously.

NASSA invited to watch NBA players train
"I was very impressed with my recent visit to a NASSA training session - not only at the skill of these young people but also with their teamwork and dedication. Improving community links between young people and the police and building confidence and positivity for the next generation is of the utmost importance. The Metropolitan Police Service in Newham is delighted to be involved with such a valuable youth project and we are looking forward to another fantastic year of working together. I am very much looking forward to my next visit"
Mr. Robert Jones- Newham Borough Commander
|‘We are extremely pleased to be working in partnership with NASSA in the creation of the most comprehensive basketball programme in the UK. As a very ambitious University we fully endorse the vision and values of NASSA, and we will collectively play a significant part in the regeneration of East London and the fulfilment of legacy post 2012. SportsDock is a flagship facility in London, and is a much greater asset to the community with NASSA an integral part of it.’
