Who We Are

For 18 years, Joseph Blair and the Blair Charity Group have been changing the lives of our most vulnerable youth. The Arizona Basketball Academy (ABA), the signature program of the Blair Charity Group,has annually provided access to world-class basketball camps and clinics for thousands of underserved youth in Southern Arizona.

 In collaboration with community partners including Nova Financial, Hughes Federal Credit Union, Tucson Conquistadors, Tucson Police Department and The Boys & Girls Club, our exemplary instructors foster the development of social and leadership skills and encourage healthy lifestyle and financial fitness for youth.

In addition to changing the lives of our campers, we provide cause-related brand execution and hands-on mentorship opportunities for our University of Arizona and professional basketball players including Solomon Hill (New Orleans Pelicans), Derrick Williams (New York Knicks), TJ McConnell (Philadelphia 76ers), Nick Johnson (Austin Spurs), European players Gabe York and Ryan Anderson, and Coach Lute Olson (University of Arizona).
