Some of his duties there include:
Delray Blazers was founded in 1997 by MAD DADS (Men against Destruction Defending against Drugs and Social Disorder) for troubled teens in the streets of Delray Beach. Kevin Huggins was then hired by MAD DADS to run the Blazers basketball program. Basketball teams and Tutoring Programs were formed to keep kids that were involved in street gangs and other undesirable activates off the streets.
The Blazers Travel Basketball was the reward for those kids that achieved and maintained a GPA of 2.5 or better. We stress education, discipline, respect and trust. Since the program’s inception, the Blazers have had 17 college graduates with several athletes playing professional basketball, baseball, and football.
This program has proven methods that go beyond sports. Our goal is to take younger kids and train them not just in sports and academics, but to also help them become leaders within their communities.
Currently the Blazers have 6 boys basketball teams grades 3, 5, 6 , 9, 10, and 11 and one girls 6th grade team.
Practices are held Monday through Thursday from 6–9 pm, Saturdays 9-1 pm and Sundays 1–6 pm at 1101 NW 1st Street in Delray Beach, FL 33444
