2001 Min-Documentary – From Wayne Dawkins to P.H.A.S.E. 1 Youth Association

Kingdom Community Projects

As we prepare to launch our upcoming Kingdom Community Projects, we would like to share a mini-documentary on the evolution of P.H.A.S.E. 1 Youth Association as community organization. A journey that started 25 years ago and in 2001 a mini-documentary was done to record the transition from Wayne Dawkins the teacher to start of the Toronto Elite Development basketball program with Saeed Al-Naji and then the merger with Ro Russell to form Grass Roots Canada.

The alumni athletes and coaches in this video have gone on to have a major impact in their communities both on and off the basketball court.

Coaches – Saeed Al-Naji, Ro Russell, George Kraus, Glen McCaughtry

Athletes – Carl English, Denham Brown, Sam Ashaolu, Kevin Massiah, Jason “Quick J” Campbell, Tristan Martin, Chris Kraus, Jr. Patrick, Mike Tuck, Steve Morrison, Wayne Smith, Andrew Carpenter, Phil Martin, Mahammad Lasege, Jabullah Murray, Evan Pellerin, Kofi Achampong, Aaron Antrobus
