East Hampton, NY— The Kendall Madison Foundation adopted the Kendall Madison Playaz, a basketball team made up of aspiring student-athletes in grades 6 through 12, from various schools across Suffolk County. The playaz hail from locales from East Hampton to Amityville. The Playaz is a certified Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) national travel program and a 501(c)(3) registered non-profit organization.

The Kendall Madison Foundation was established by Sharon Bacon in memory of her son, Kendall Madison, who was an outstanding athlete and model student from East Hampton. Kendall, who was killed in January of 1995 while doing a promotion at a nightclub, was revered by his community, schoolmates, and college associates.

The Kendall Madison Foundation co-signed Kendall Madison Playaz after realizing the program’s group of volunteer staff and coaches had the same goals in mind for its players: to foster self-enhancement skills through recreational programs and implement innovative fund-raising methods as a means to provide academic scholarships to graduating seniors. Additionally, the foundation helps to fund travel for national competitions, and purchase athletic uniforms, fitness and safety equipment for organized sporting activities, or as needed by high school athletes, all necessary support for the team to thrive.

Headed by Director Nick Thomas, a Bridgehampton alumnus and head junior varsity coach and assistant varsity coach of the Center Moriches Red Devils—the two-time Suffolk County Class B County champions—-the Kendall Madison Playaz is designed to give striving student-athletes an outlet to cultivate their talents by competing at the highest level during the spring and summer seasons while gaining recruiting exposure. However, the players are strongly encouraged to excel to their highest potential off the basketball court as well. Each participant is required to maintain a grade point average of 2.5 or higher and tutoring and SAT preperation are provided to ensure that standard is met.

In addition to being a conduit for each participant to blossom as both a scholar and an athlete, the Kendall Madison Playaz program allows athletes to gain exposure to college scouts and coaches from around the country through showcase tournaments and camps in various gyms throughout the U.S. This year’s tournament schedule includes trips to Springfield, Massachusetts; Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; Washington D.C.; Hampton, Virginia; and Providence, Rhode Island, among several others.

The Kendall Madison Playaz operates by means of fundraising, sponsorships and donations in any and all capacities. Currently the Playaz trying to raise funds to participate in the Orlando Super Showcase, from July 23 through July 27, at the Disney Wide World of Sports Complex in Orlando, Florida. All donations, payable to The Kendall Madison Foundation, 67A Main Street, Suite 2, East Hampton, N.Y. 11937, are tax deductable and greatly appreciated.
