About Us

Nevada C.C. Wolverines Basketball program is a non-profit organization, founded in 2010 by The Children’s Cabinet, Inc. to help children in the development of social, athletic and academic skills. The goal of our program is to foster positive growth and development of students throughout their elementary school, middle school and high school years with the ultimate achievement being successful college careers. The Nevada C.C. Wolverines strives to help our participants in achieving an academic level that will help them with college admissions and/or be eligible for a college scholarship through sports.

    Our emphasis is essentially student achievement achieved by the following:

  • Improving participant’s academic performance. We require the kids to maintain an acceptable GPA in order to participate in our athletic program. We provide our student athletes with mentors committed to their success in both school as well as their personal life.
  • Keeping kids busy and out of trouble through basketball training.
  • Provide proper guidance and support for participants that otherwise may be missing from their personal lives.
