Build. Black. Youth

At the heart of the Build. Black. is improving outcomes and our communities so Black youth can thrive, be healthy and safe. We are excited to announce a partnership with Sacramento Kings to launch: Kings and Queens Rise Co-Ed Basketball League.

This is no ordinary league. The Kings and Queens Rise Basketball League seeks to interrupt violence by providing an opportunity for young people to engage in an inter-community sports activity that provides a caring productive environment through community building, sportsmanship, and resources for health and safety.

JOIN US: June 9th Kick-Off with a Kings Half Time Show, games, food, and of course watch our youth in their first basketball tournament.

Kings and Queens Rise League Kick Off
Location: Encina High School
Time: Starts at 9:00AM
