Blair Charity Group

Taking steps to help the community make strides.

The Blair Charity Group serves youth by offering high-quality, year-round programming that promotes teamwork, leadership and community-service in a sports-based setting. In 2000, Joseph Blair started The Arizona Basketball Academy in order to offer a professional basketball camp experience to youth who may not otherwise have the opportunity. Offered as a weeklong summer camp and monthly daylong clinic, the program focuses on basketball and life skills. Every session includes a segment designed to build skills off the court including: financial literacy, social media responsibility and life skills

Objectives include:

  • Maintaining physical optimization and balance
  • Cultivating teamwork and personal responsibility
  • Social interaction between diverse economic, social and geographic groups


The Arizona Basketball Academy hosts a weeklong summer camp that not only focuses on teaching basketball skills but also builds social and life skills.



Arizona Basketball Academy offers FREE one day basketball clinics throughout Southern AZ. Clinics are limited to 50 kids so register early to ensure a space!



This fun-filled annual event is held at Golf N’ Stuff on the last night of Joseph Blair’s weeklong camp in Tucson. Attendees have unlimited access to all of the games and attractions. All campers are invited to enjoy this celebration which also provides a wonderful opportunity for supporters and participants to connect.
