The mission of the TNE United Basketball program is to organize and administer a highly competitive and developmental basketball program in a diverse environment that fosters athletic and social growth. Players are given the opportunity to compete against teams at the state, regional and national levels and develop leadership skills, respect and relationships within a caring environment. We strive to challenge our players to reach their maximum potential in practice, games and in life.
The TNE United basketball organization provides children with positive experiences and qualities that help influence choices young people make and help them become caring, responsible, successful adults. More than sixty percent of our players receive free or reduced lunch and have limited resources available to them outside of school. TheTNE United organization takes great pride in mentoring students and providing them additional assets to help support their social and emotional development beyond the school setting.
During the summer, we make every effort to continue supporting our kids by providing them opportunities to compete against other players in the region and to foster relationships with positive adults through the sport of basketball. Our program has an active list of players totaling over one hundred and fifty kids throughout the state of Nebraska with various socioeconomic backgrounds.
The organization is defined by club directors Alvin Mitchell and Alonzo “Mitch” Mitchell and their philosophy of basketball and culture of the game. In addition to their leadership, they posses an outstanding ability of networking with tournament directors and researching the most appropriate locations for the best teams to compete against.
Alvin, Mitch and their administrative team and coaching staff are willing to commit their time to provide your child an opportunity to play against the best programs in the nation and region.
