We are built on lived experience – many of our experienced staff have faced the same issues and challenges as our players. We understand what it’s like to feel alone, and the huge difference that being part of a team can make.
Speaking from personal experience, CEO & Founder David Duke states “The effects of poverty are brutal & devastate communities. Living in this environment means people are faced with a lack of opportunity, which leads to a lack of hope.
I have experienced this & can only describe it as being locked in a cold & dark room with no doors. Waking up everyday with a feeling of hopelessness can lead to poor mental health, addiction, crime & in some cases death.
That is why we are totally inclusive, respectful, and understanding while offering opportunity to anyone who needs it. We do not impose a time limit or any other expectations, only reassurance that we are here to inspire people to be all they can be.”

If in doubt we base our decisions on what is best for our players
We don’t dwell on the past, we provide hope for what is to come
We work as a team and make sure everyone stays involved
We take delight in selfless acts every day
If we say we are going to do something we make sure we get it done
We support and look out for each other, and challenge each other every day
