Oakland Lions Basketball Club

The Oakland Lions

OLC's Youth Basketball program

"Our mission is to teach discipline, resilience, empathy and leadership to boys and young men."

We believe that basketball is an amazing tool to teach life skills and build community across cultural boundaries

Our basketball club focuses on youth development on and off the court. Our coaches will have AAU coaching license as well as certification through Positive Coaching Alliance and in some cases USA Basketball Youth Development.

Our current coaches are William Pryor, Nate Millheim, and Dommo Brown. We bring a wealth of experience both in coaching and in mentoring and community development work.

We are committed to making this program affordable for all families, keeping our fees as low as possible. We want every child to have the opportunity to have fun and develop character through this wonderful sport. Scholarships will be available.

We currently have four teams that play throughout the year.

Thank you to Merch Monster Screen Printing, Millenium Edge Athletic Apparel, and DryMax Socks for sponsoring our team!! Your generosity is appreciated.
