Every child deserves a chance.

Aware of the overwhelming negative influences facing underprivileged children in Los Angeles, Derek Locklear decided he must provide at-risk youth with alternatives to unhealthy behaviors; offering hope and a positive alternative to alienation, depression, gangs & crime.
Through this coaching and exposure to the “Coach Derek way” he was confident he could be a positive influence in these children’s lives.
