Mission

JLT Fieldhouse, Inc. mission is Coaching and Mentoring the Leaders of Tomorrow. We currently serve the City of Salisbury and Rowan County areas of North Carolina. JLT Fieldhouse, a nonprofit 501c3 organization, offers year round intense one on one and team oriented basketball training as well as lessons in leadership, teamwork, goal setting and overcoming obstacles. While we primarily focus on the basics of the game of basketball, we also work on developing cross-over athletic skills, building self esteem and the value of team success over individual achievement. Our major contributions to the community will be mentoring and coaching of life skills and establishing a foundation to provide educational assistance to JLT Fieldhouse participants and nonparticipants alike.

Our programs

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Clinics

We offer clinics for boys and girls, ranging in ages of 6 years old and up to college age.

These clinics are designed to teach the fundamentals of the game of basketball, while also focusing on teamwork, trust, respect, good work ethic and building up of confidence and self esteem.

Population(s) Served

We provide one on one lessons, focusing on basic fundamentals, while also encouraging and teaching how to play and work as a complete teammate, by not be individually minded. This approach helps in our group settings, clinics and camps, to allow our participants to apply what they learn in private sessions.

Population(s) Served

We provide weekly clinics for all of our age groups, including over lapping our intermediate and elite groups. This allows for our older kids to interact and mentor our younger players within the same learning environment.

Population(s) Served

We get involved with other nonprofits within our community. We have a monthly Meals on Wheels route that we invite the kids and their parents to join us for. We also gather toys each Christmas for the children connected with Prevent Child Abuse Rowan.

Population(s) Served

Some of the Camp Highlights:
“Quality Over Quantity”– To maximize the necessary one on one and team teaching time, we limit our camps to a maximum of 32 campers. We want to provide every camper with the attention and extra reps that they may need to ensure a successful camp experience. Our repeat participants appreciate quality of our camps, something they have shared with us directly, on multiple occasions.

“The Factory”– High intense skills stations, focused on increasing confidence in ball handling, shooting, rebounding and defensive skills. One of the kids favorite parts of camp!

"No Fear of Working Hard"- Every child that enters the gym for our camps, knows that they will be tested, they will learn, become teachers to their teammates and students of the game. They will build their skill levels as well as their confidence, be expected to give their best effort and bring a positive attitude everyday. And, they will have a great time doing it all!

“Team Teaching Stations”– Targeted teaching stations; includes, setting & using screens, closing out, boxing out, multiple offensive “Cuts” (back cut, face cut, backdoor door cut, etc), “How” to play on the ball and help & recover defense.

“5 on 5 Season” – The kids are split into 4 teams that they will remain on for the entire week. Daily games, that has the kids playing up to 48 games in five days. This allows for them to apply all of the skills and drills that we go through daily and throughout the week, developing chemistry with their teammates and allowing the coaching staff the additional instructional time, if needed.

“No Zone Defense”– Man to Man is the only defense allowed in our camps. We want to ensure the campers understand the true concept of both individual and team (help & recover) defense. We have always seen more focus, determination, team work and communication with this approach.

“Tournament Friday”– This is a total camp skills and games competition, representing all four teams. Performed on the last day of camp to showcase what was learned throughout the week, while also closing out the week with fun and enthusiasm! This is the best part of the week for the coaches, as we get to see first hand how the teams have grown in such short time. Plus, there is always an upset on Tournament Day!

“Parents & Families”– We invite parents and families to take in all of our Friday tournament festivities, as the kids are always excited to showcase what they have learned throughout the week! Our tournament activities begin approximately 90 minutes prior to the conclusion of camp.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Primary goal of JLT Fieldhouse, Inc., is just what our mission statement covers, "Coaching and Mentoring the Leaders of Tomorrow". We want to provide youth in the lower income areas of our community the same opportunities that the privileged are currently participating in, at low to no cost to them. Establish our scholarship foundation to allow all of our participants, as well as non participants to to have the opportunity to attend higher education institutions, without fear of not being able to afford the tuition. As we grow, we will implement our Learning/Innovation Center, that will be partnered with the two higher education institutions in our community, Livingstone College and Catawba College. Collaborating with the education departments at each school, we would like to have them incorporate us into their curriculum to allow their education majors the opportunity to work first hand in our learning center, to build community unity, while also allowing them the opportunity to gain early teaching experience prior to graduating.

Prior to reaching that point, we will work with our other nonprofit organizations, offering our services to assist in improving quality lives. Examples of those are Prevent Child Abuse Rowan, Rowan Helping Ministries, Crosby Scholars, to name a few. We also have just partnered with the local Parks and Recreation and YMCA to collaborate our efforts.

Learning (Innovation) Center
The success of today's youth is largely dependent on education. So much so, that organizations such as ours wish to mentor, lead, usher in the use of mobile tools/technology, and create avenues focused on sustainable innovations. Existing opportunities to extend students glocal (global and local) reach is important not only to their personal development, but also to the economic development of their communities. The development of a productive Innovation Center begins with a digital footprint and strategic approach. Our 4C's; 1) Content, 2) Communication, 3) Community, and 4) Culture, will provide attendees the opportunity to engage with extended experiential learning using 21st century learning spaces, virtual/augmented reality, and hands on mentoring. We have had the discussions to quantify our programs position and now move forward to qualify its future narrative.

Developing rural America is a linchpin for our organization. Providing education as an investment into Rowan County, NC is a focal point. Our JLT Innovation Center will focus on education, health and wellness, and workforce development. Utilizing the following community education tracks, our focus of developing young men and women will come to fruition and be long lasting.

Area of focus for our Learning/Innovation Center
1- Teaching Inspiring Planning (TIP)
2- Leading and Empowering Advancement through Perspective (LEAP)
3- Rise Unique Leaders Evolve (RULE)
4- Personal Action Seats Success (PASS)

Our marketing strategies will be key to our ability to reach our goals. we have already been able to acquire a marketing tool, PeachJar.com, to reach every student in our entire community. This includes every elementary, middle and high school. by doing this, we can increase our clinics, private sessions, camps and tournaments.

Utilizing coaching connections at the middle school, high school, college and professional levels, will gain us the exposure to legitimize our programming. We have already connected with a few former Division 1 college coaches and players, having had a former NCAA DI coach as a guest speaker at our first camp.

Getting local community leaders to continue supporting our cause, will also improve and increase our exposure. The former Mayor and current Mayor are already fans of our vision. We have gained the of potential political leaders that are actually providing us with leads on how we can grow.

Our base is set, time is all that is needed to get to where we want and need to be.

• Antwaun Thompson is registered and certified basketball coach with CoachUP.com, Lessons.com and BasketballTrainer.com
• Word of mouth- Our recent weekly lessons, clinics and basketball camps have received raved reviews and reinforces the need for this opportunity in this community
• We will host once a month information sessions at our facility, which will be attended by invited guests (parents of players, coaches, etc).
• We will sponsor local give-a-ways at high school and middle school basketball games

We have established a gym that we are able to work out of consistently. This is key, as it allows us to showcase, if only on a small scale, our services and how beneficial they are and can be. We have begun to get word of mouth referrals that have put us in a position to actually have difficulty fulfilling the private lesson requests from week to week.

We have not been able to acquire our own facility, but are hopeful that by years' end we will be a step closer. We have not yet obtained any grants to assist with our operations and capital, but again, we hope to achieve that this year as well.

We have not yet secured the large donor base that we were hoping to at least tap into by this time in our early existence.
