Coach & Mentor, Mike Martin knew early on in his basketball career that he would spend life after basketball giving back to youth and young men. As a 8 year international basketball player, he did a lot of school visits, clinics and camps meeting kids from around the world. Now back in the states, Coach Mike is making a commitment to be a visible figure in the community.
“Today, I may be done playing professionally but working with the youth is something that I am passionate about beyond the game”.
Coach Mike, along with is wife, Tricia founded Great Gain Athletics Inc, a sports mentoring organization to impact the lives of the next generation. He now uses his experiences and knowledge to inspire youth to stay physically active and make healthier choices in life. His first visit this summer was Marvin Avenue Elementary Annual Sports & Nutrition Fair, in which he hosted a mini clinic for ages 6 through 12.
