ABOUT THE STREET LEGENDS ORGANIZATION
The Street Legends Organization (S.L.O.) was founded in 2005 by Wilton & Lisa Russell. This dynamic husband and wife team set out to change the face of basketball in The Bahamas. The idea was to use Basketball as a catalyst to “Bridge the Gap” between young men and women who often opposed one another based on where they lived. They tailor made their two (2) week basketball tournament to attract the “Street Ballers” of the Inner City Communities. They received an overwhelming response, and the number of teams signing up to participate in the tournament grew rapidly. The influx of teams caused an extension of the tournament from two weeks, to four weeks, inevitably becoming a three-month Basketball League which lasted the entire summer.
The draw of the Street Legends Organization has always been the respect they give to the “Street Ballers”. Wilton and his wife Lisa laid out a plan to take a message of unity and peace into every constituency within The Bahamas, and they continue their work to “Bridge the Gap” between all communities and its residents with The Bahamas each and every year.
The Street Legends Organization continues to grow in team memberships every year since its inception, with its individual participant numbers reaching over 3,000 in 2016.
