LOVE FOR SLICK
Now in stable condition, Slick has been moved to a rehabilitation center for the coming weeks. Known as a scrappy ball player, he is doing just that in his treatment. He has a long way to go, but he is in there scrapping and putting in the work everyday!
Because EVERY child deserves an opportunity!
The Watts Foundation supports youth in need through scholarships to cover out-of-school time activities including team and camp participation, mentorships, academic support, college visits, community service, and community building activities….
“The hard work [Donald] puts into the community and on the court rubs off on people… it’s a blessing.”

“Out of all of the basketball programs that I have been with, I have learned the most from Watts… It taught me a lot of hard work and dedication.”
ALLEN HILDEBRAND | Parent
“Watts teaches my son much more than basketball skills, they teach honor, respect, pride (not only in the game of basketball, but pride in oneself), and what a positive work ethic he instills!”
