1st Inaugural DSO Sports Golf Outing!  

w/ National Champion & former Detroit Piston Mateen Cleaves!

5 Years ago, I began DSO Sports with a passion to change the standard of youth basketball in the Tri-County Ann Arbor area.  There were several programs in the community, but none were concerned with developing on and off the court development.  After recruiting like minded basketball professions to help with the growth, DSO Sports has expanded its services to AAU Boys & Girls basketball with the Michigan Sting serving as the pioneer organization to join in the movement.

DSO Sports is entering a new era where providing a great learning environment in addition to a competitive atmosphere for players that need assistance is our #1 priority.  This outing and fundraising opportunity is a chance for our existing and future players to keep up with the rising costs of gym space, leagues, tournaments, travel, insurance, staffing and all it takes to run a program at a minimum for vested customers.

Our #1 priority is to provide the best coaching, best development for the best value!

Thank you for considering a donation to our event…whether you can attend or not.

Please register to help support our youth who really need it!
