At TDBA, Our Mission is to Help Kids Thrive!
There is a maximum bandwidth every individual has. Though we are not at that point yet here in Tampa, we do ultimately have a maximum amount of players and families we can fit into our schedule.
The only way to "HELP MORE KIDS" is to Create and "Help More Coaches" .
The ability to pursue one's passion, especially helping kids, while building a professional and personal brand is special. I am very grateful this is happening in my life. Many coaches never get this opportunity due to lack of opportunities to actually scrape by a living doing so. Many find a way, even if they have to volunteer their time to do so. If its truly your passion you will find a way. But we hope to create more opportunities for people like us, to do what it is we love most, for a living.
Unfortunately, coaches are typically the most underpaid (By far. Even worse than teachers) and often under-appreciated aspects of youth development. When you ask people, "who has had the most significant impact on their life?" Outside of parent or sibling, Coach is usually a common answer.
The TDBA Coach the Coach Program helps Coaches, Trainers and Parents. This Helps Kids!

Zachary Hodskins is a former professional FIBA basketball player and former University of Florida Guard for current Chicago Bulls Head Coach Billy Donovan. Through hours of hard work and dedication to the game of basketball, Hodskins has defied the odds and became a Division-1 and professional athlete despite being born without the lower half of his left hand. His inspirational story has been featured on ESPN, Sports Illustrated, Bleacher Report, Good Morning America, CNN and many others throughout the years.
Hodskins first made headlines when the 6-foot-4 guard out of Alpharetta, Ga., committed to the University of Florida out of Milton High School (one of the state’s power-house basketball programs) as a preferred walk-on. Since he was just 13, Hodskins spent his time playing in the national AAU circuit around the country where he gained media buzz and attention from various NCAA programs. Hodskins would go on to play for the Florida Gators, facing off in the SEC against top competition. Hodskins would eventually progress into a professional career in China and Germany after his time at Florida.
