History and Organization

BCI was founded in 2004 by former basketball player and coach Sharm Scheuerman and his wife, Kathy. Many outstanding individuals work to bring our vision and mission to the world, beginning with our top-level leadership teams. BCI is governed by a president and board of directors, and is supported by the president's advisory council, a sports council comprised of influential sports figures, and a player-driven national basketball leadership team called Sharm's Squad. We also rely on sponsors, donors, and volunteers to help communicate our message, organize events, and develop new ways to use BCI's vision to make a difference.
