Emmanuel is launching a new partnership with DreamChasers Basketball to offer boys and girls ages 6-14 the opportunity to develop basketball skills while having fun! There will be scrimmages, games, and more.

Harvey Harrington

Emmanuel has a history of offering basketball programs that come alongside young players and teach them the fundamentals of the sport, as well as fostering character development, teamwork, and perseverance. DreamChasers Basketball is an Indianapolis-based program that works with individuals, groups, and teams to help develop their basketball skills. Harvey Harrington, founder of DreamChasers, has a passion for basketball, the community, and youth which aligns well with Emmanuel’s vision and mission.

Harvey’s experience, knowledge, and love of the game of basketball is evident in all the training sessions, camps, and workouts that he leads. His partnership with Emmanuel is grounded in their shared love of kids and God.
