Incapital a Sponsor of KingNation Basketball

Nonprofit provides opportunities for youths in the greater Toronto area

Incapital, a leading underwriter and distributor of fixed income and other financial products, announced today that it is a sponsor of the non-profit organization KingNation Basketball.

The organization provides opportunities for at-risk youths through basketball programs in the greater Toronto area (GTA). KingNation Basketball aims to integrate the skills needed for success on the basketball court into practical skills for everyday life.

“We are honored to work with and support such an inspiring organization that positively impacts student athletes,” said John Radtke, CEO of Incapital. “We look forward to our involvement with KingNation Basketball, and building on our connections with the local community.”

In 2002, the first club basketball team was formed by Roy Rana and Kerreigh Ernst, with emphasis on the downtown Toronto neighborhoods. In 2010, renowned trainer and former Team Canada captain Vidal Massiah, joined the program as Executive Director and expanded with several new teams participating on the AAU circuit, under the Northern Kings brand. According to the organization, it is now one of the leading programs in the development of elite basketball players in the GTA.

The programs offered by KingNation Basketball are for boys, girls, and young men and women, ages 8-18.

“As Incapital continues to expand and integrate within the Toronto area, we hope to establish a footprint that will further the lives of youths who are benefiting from this great program and organization,” said Jason Wilson, President of Incapital Canada. The Incapital Canada office launched in August 2012.

KingNation Executive Director Vidal Massiah added, "We are thrilled to have a quality organization like Incapital involved in our development. They will truly make a huge difference in the lives of several of our players who will benefit greatly from their support."
