BasketballMAUI began operations 10 years ago with a young man’s love for basketball and the community of Maui. It was Ben Prangnell’s vision that brought this non-profit into reality. Ben envisioned basketballMAUI to reach beyond the sport and to also instill character development and leadership skills to all those involved. Through the years, this nonprofit has reached thousands of keiki on Maui, Molokai, and Lanai through camps and clinics that bring world-class professional athletes and trainers.
Basketball camp usually runs in the month of June for five days, serving hundreds of kids each year. Many professional players have visited us over the years and have come to serve our youth. See the video below for basketballMAUI Camp highlights!
We are excited for what’s ahead with basketballMAUI. A brand-new gymnasium has recently opened in Kihei, South Maui, where we hope to have many of our camps and clinics! This world class facility has been 20 years in the making, finally open for us to use. The gymnasium can separate to 4 courts with 12 total baskets.
We hope to start a basketball training academy for kids in this new gymnasium, run by our Executive Director Josh Duinker. After playing Division 1 college basketball, and seeing 10 seasons in 10 different countries overseas at the professional level, we look forward to seeing many kids taking their game to the next level while building character and becoming young leaders.
