Who we are

Global Professional Sports is a full service youth basketball organization located in the Upper West Side of Manhattan started by Mark Jerome and John Ballesteros. The number of youth basketball programs in New York City has grown significantly but very few organizations excel on teaching the game of basketball and preparing youth basketball student-athletes to play at a higher-level whether it be elite AAU basketball and/or high school basketball.

  • Donovan Mitchell - Louisville
  • Shavar Newkirk - St. Joes
