The Grind Basketball
In October 2018, Terrell brought together a group of 9 young players who worked together as one team, training twice a week to compete in the Future Vikes Tournament in December 2018. This teams goal was to play in this local tournament under the name Swish which resulted in them winning Silver in the U11 division. The journey exceeded everyone’s expectations and inspired Terrell to pursue his long term vision to create an Elite Basketball Program – The Grind.
Through the hard work of the young players and their whole heartedly devoted families, THE GRIND BASKETBALL was founded in March 2019. A heart-centered youth basketball program and community which extends all social, economic, and racial demographics, inclusive, committed, kind, and ready to put the work into their GRIND.
