Securing A Mind Foundation (SAM-F) was founded in 2003 by Samuel Hines a former professional basketball player and Hall of Fame recipient. With a seventeen-year legacy of playing professional basketball in nine countries, Hines brings his athletic expertise and worldly knowledge to helping boys and girls understand more than the sport of basketball. He instills in these young athletes how to apply discipline, sportsmanship, respect and manners into their everyday life. Hines states, “I want to use my experience to help children learn not only how to be a better and skilled player but to be a good citizen that takes pride in themselves and their community.” SAM-F’s Mission is to foster children’s intellectual, physical, social, and ethical development and support them in developing critical life skills required to compete in today’s increasingly global society, from the sports to the classroom. The goal is to ensure that no child will be denied the chance to be part of a team and the opportunity to have a mentor. SAM-F programs also allow financially disadvantaged students and opportunity to attend HNS sports camps, speed and agility clinics and travel basketball teams for ages 5 to 15, as well indoor sand volleyball training and conditioning. SAM-F collaborates with local schools and community organizations to identify these children. Securing a Mind Foundation is located in Cumming, Georgia 30040 at 1710 Redi Road #100.
