We bet you've never seen anything like this before! The notion of a flat surface is completely abandoned when it comes to the the 3D basketball court in Munich. Would you give this crazy court a try?
One of the great things about the annual Stand Tall All-Star programs is building ongoing relationships with awesome young people. It was great to have Nikita bring her strength and determination to the team for the second year in a row!

Did you know that our Stand Tall Director, Cal Bruton, only stands at 5’9 (175 cm) tall? Cal was one of the first and the smallest point guards to play in the NBL. Proving that if you put the hard yards in you can always overcome life's obstacles!
We just love seeing these smiling faces! Our programs are about teaching life and leadership skills, but most importantly doing it in a fun way.
