Brown Athletic Division is a youth and family outreach organization that specializes in fitness training. B.A.D is centrally located in Charlotte, NC but does have a presence in other parts of the southeast. Brown Athletic Division was established in February of 2011 by Shaun Brown who saw a growing need for more positive influences and mentors in today’s society. Shaun, who grew up playing basketball and was eventually, offered a 4-year athletic scholarship to play collegiate ball, felt that the learning of a sport housed valuable lessons that could easily be translated to today’s youth. Since its beginning in 2011 with only 1 youth, B.A.D. has witnessed tremendous transformation and growth. As we continue to grow, we’re reaching out to more and more children in different neighborhoods and introducing ourselves to new supporters across the country.
