James Mereus's playing résumé includes college ball, professional play overseas, and workouts with NBA teams such as the Toronto Raptors, Atlanta Hawks, and Memphis Grizzlies. Today, he's set his sights a few inches shorter. Still, the founder of One5 Basketball, a youth camp and clinic, uses his passion and basketball IQ to teach the next generation of ballers about the fundamentals of the game. For help, he's tapped a team of equally experienced trainers: record-setting college players, overseas MVPs, and players from professional international leagues.
Through drills, games, and instruction, One5's trainers teach shooting and dribbling skills, offense and defense fundamentals, and footwork, all while helping kids improve their agility and hand-eye coordination. But Mereus's vision means his charges' experience will go beyond learning bounce passes and perfecting signatures for shoe endorsements. The ultimate mission is to instill concepts of teamwork and goal-setting, helping build confidence and self-esteem that will give athletes a will to win and the ability to learn from loss.

At N Zone Sports, coaches develop players both on and off the field. Instead of cultivating a highly competitive atmosphere, they allow each child to get ample time in the spotlight—so long as he or she demonstrates a sufficient grasp of sportsmanship and teamwork. Tikes as young as 3 years old can prove their mastery of the concepts of flag football, soccer, cheerleading, basketball, or baseball or by shaking the hand of someone who just poured Gatorade over their heads.
At Tone Sports, the staff organizes co-ed sports leagues for football, softball, basketball, volleyball, and other popular team sports. Instead of emphasizing competition, the leagues emphasize the social side of sports, which began when Babe Ruth hosted the first cakewalk. To complement the sports leagues, Tone Sports' fitness facility also offers sports-training programs.

The crew focuses on enhancing each adult’s or child's capacity for speed, agility, strength, and overall performance in a fun, sports-oriented environment. The classes are designed for all types of people with varying fitness goals.
