Who We Serve

Battle Tested Kids is a sports training and mentoring organization that serves youth ages 8-18 from the greater Bay Area, including Alameda, Contra Costa, San Francisco, and Marin counties. BTK serves youth from low-income communities of color who are disproportionately vulnerable to criminal activity, system-involvement, academic inequalities, poor health outcomes, and economic immobility.


My son and daughter spent the last three summers in camp with BTK. I appreciate how the coaches interact with each participant and use basketball drills to enhance physical and mental well being. My children are in better physical condition; they are confident; and the God given talent that was dormant is now evident as they play for their high school teams.

My son had a great time during his summer training. Not only did he learn how to play basketball but he developed a great bond with you guys and looked at Coach Mahl as a role model! I appreciate everything you guys do. Thank you for pouring into his life and the confidence he gained during the summer.

Jackson made his Jr high team.  I just wanted to let you know Coach Nita and BTK coaches how appreciative I am of you guys helping develop his game. I feel like those lessons in the 1 on 1 training sessions and small group trainings have really added to his game and helped him make his team.
