Mission

Founded in 2015, Mystic Valley Pride, is a 501c3 non-profit elite youth sports program that empowers underprivileged youth to reach their full potential, both on and off the court. Our courts and fields provide a safe and nurturing environment for young men and women of all skills levels to develop their fundamental Basketball Skills at and affordable cost for those who otherwise would not be able to play due to economic hardship. In order to live up to the name Mystic Valley "Pride" players learn they that can make a difference now and in the future by giving back to the local community.



History

Born and raised in the inner-city and all too familiar with the hardships associated, Founder and CEO, Richard Tierney wanted to begin an organization that helped all children in his community and surrounding areas obtain access to basketball regardless of their socioeconomic status. In 2015 Richard, and a small group of dedicated coaches, launched Mystic Valley Pride.
