The program was established and founded by Milton Barnes in 2016 with the Battle Creek Family YMCA serving as its’ home location.   Since then Play Right Basketball Academy has grown to expand in numerous locations in southwest Michigan and is now recognized as a 501 (c)3 charity created to positively impact area youth.   We have now expanded to include partnerships with Battle Creek Public Schools, Marshall Public Schools, New Level Sports of Battle Creek, Jackson Public Schools and others.
