Sponsorships

Team up with Shaka Smart Basketball Camps to reach Richmond Metro Area families.

At Shaka Smart Basketball Camps, we help more than 1,000 boys and girls become better basketball players and embrace fitness and nutrition for a lifetime. Through our website, email newsletters, social media channels, onsite promotion and take-home materials, our sponsors have the captive attention of their parents. As a corporate partner with Shaka Smart Basketball Camps, we are committed to giving your company meaningful interactions with our camp families. Additionally, every corporate sponsor will provide scholarships for deserving youth in the Richmond area who would not otherwise be able to attend camp.

Last year we were able to provide more than 60 scholarships for area children because of corporate involvement in the Shaka Smart Basketball Camps. These players came from local organizations including the Boys and Girls Club, Virginia Home for Boys, Church Hill Activities and Tutoring (CHAT), Anna Julia Cooper School and Chimborozo Elementary School. Corporate sponsors may designate who receives their scholarships or allow our staff to pair you with a local youth-enrichment nonprofit.
