Augusta Power Foundation, Inc. is a 501 c 3 non-profit, community & youth based student-athlete organization that was established in 2006. The purpose of the basketball academy program is to provide student-athletes a chance to showcase their talents in National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA), Amateur Athletic Union (AAU), Youth Basketball of America (YBOA), and Recruiting Services sanctioned and certified event across the United States of America. This opportunity allows student-athletes to enhance their basketball development skills and gives them a chance to compete with their peer across the country in their respective age groups. The potential of a college athletic scholarship is greater for student-athletes that participate on these types of levels. Our aim is to assist the student-athletes in earning their high school diploma and/or preparing them for higher education. We work with each student-athlete to make sure that they are on course to be approved for the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Clearinghouse, which governs a student-athletes acceptance into NCAA associated college programs.
