Charg1ng Forward to help kids

Reach Their Potential

The Braxton Miller Foundation is dedicated to bringing athletic and STEM opportunities to young people and using those opportunities to improve their lives through education, sports, and mentoring.

Educational Opportunities

In addition to our athletic leagues and camps, we also partner with Xtreme STEM to offer robotics competitions. Participants in our Charg1ng robotics program learn how to build robots that can be part of robotics competitions, learning more about STEM careers in the process.

Sports Leagues + Camps

Our youth sports events are at the heart of our mission at The Braxton Miller Foundation. We organize a number of leagues, including basketball and flag football, for boys and girls at multiple age levels. We also host multi-day football and basketball camps. In addition, we have opportunities for non-traditional competition in sports such as robotics, for kids who may not have an interest in participating in conventional sporting events. All of the Charg1ng events we organize are designed to give kids skills they can use as part of the game, as well as skills they can carry with them in life, whatever they choose to do.

Who We Are

We formed The Braxton Miller Foundation out of a desire to help kids achieve higher in sports and in life. Through our sports camps and leagues, and thanks to our highly-trained professional coaching staff, we give kids the tools they need to be better athletes, better students, better communicators, and better leaders as they go through life. The organization was founded in 2021 by former Buckeye and NFL football player Braxton Miller and his aunt, Lashonda.

On Sunday, July 24th, Springfield lost a beloved community member and leader while serving in the line of duty.

Deputy Matt Yates was husband to Tracy Yates, a volunteer for our Davey Moore Park Summer League, and father to AK Yates, who was participating in our summer league. Deputy Yates' passing has affected many in our community, and to honor and respect him and his legacy, we are canceling the last week of our summer league.

We will not have summer league games this upcoming weekend, July 30th.

Please keep Deputy Yates' family, friends, coworkers, and the entire Springfield community in your prayers. Thank you to everyone who participated in this year's Davey Moore Summer League.

Rest in peace Deputy Matt Yates. Thank you for your service to our community.

Tomorrow is the day!!!! We are so excited for the Davey Moore Park Summer League to kick off tomorrow Saturday, July 9th. This is going to be an amazing experience for the kids.

Please note: The games tomorrow will be played at SPRINGFIELD HIGH SCHOOL, not Davey Moore Park. When you arrive at the high school, go to the side doors closest to the football stadium for registration. Please arrive 20-30 minutes before your scheduled game to get registered and get your child's jersey.

Pending weather, we will play at Davey Moore Park starting July 16th.

Parents, if your child is registered for the summer league, you should have started receiving email communication from Huntsman Elite this week. Everything you need to know about the summer league, including the roster your child is on and game time start, will be sent via email. Please let us know if you have not received an email from Huntsman Elite.

We are ready to inspire and empower the youth of Springfield through a summer of basketball and fun. It's game time! Let's go!!!!

It's the last day of school in Springfield! As we celebrate the last day of the 2021/2022 school year, we want to reflect on the fantastic #missionmoments we've had this year with Hayward Middle School and share the content of our Hayward Robotics team at their XtremeBOTS robotics competition on April 30th.

Thank you to the fantastic students and teachers at Hayward for helping the foundation launch our #STEM programming and helping us create such an incredible inaugural season for our robotics team. We have enjoyed watching the students find a passion for robotics and STEM. We can't wait to keep it going next year!

We also can't wait to launch the newest program in our STEM pillar: Drone Soccer. Stay tuned to learn more about the latest addition to the Braxton Miller Foundation STEM programming family! 👀👀
