Gladiator Sports Inc. is a Harlem-based non-profit organization that provides basketball and educational programs for boys and girls aged 6 to 18. Their mission is to target barriers that restrict youth sports participation in Central Harlem and create solutions that increase opportunities for participation. They also believe that strong minds are essential in this ever changing world. In an attempt to address this issue, Gladiator Sports provides Reading Comprehension, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies and Current Events to reinforce their youth's academic stability. They believe in putting education first - their children must perform in the classroom before they can perform on the court.
