WE ALL NEED A COACH
adidas Legacy is a high school basketball platform built for underrepresented communities and designed to unite, empower, and inspire the next generation of creators. Legacy hinges on the wisdom of coaches, united in their goal to inspire young men and women, that they may lift their communities to a better future.
adidas will continue to elevate the adidas Legacy program by pledging $1 million to a newly created Scholarship Fund for Legacy alumni. The Legacy Fund Scholarship is part of a larger $3.7 million commitment from the brand to create scholarships across different programs for Black and LatinX youth over the next four years. adidas will partner with the United Negro College Fund to manage the scholarships through 2024.
