The Year – 2002; The Mission – Scholarships and Championships; The Vehicle – Basketball
In 2002, Ty White created a movement that would allow young men to overcome social, economic, cultural and geographic barriers that may hinder their success in life. At the time, Coach White, a high school basketball coach and product of Petersburg, VA formed an organization with the simple mission of giving Petersburg, Virginia kids an opportunity to play basketball during the off months after high school season. With a vision and mission to secure college scholarships for kids from his community, the Petersburg Elite journey began.
Fast forward to present-day and Ty White’s organization, now named Team Loaded, is one of the largest and most successful Grassroots Basketball programs in America. Team Loaded has grown from a locally based program to an Adidas sponsored flagship program, consistently helping over 30 student-athletes obtain college scholarships each year! Team Loaded now fields over 30 teams and spans from Virginia to North Carolina and Washington, DC.
