Guided by Sherwin Anderson, former Xavier U Captain & Harlem Globetrotter
The Pop-Pop Basketball League was founded by Brooklyn-born Sherwin Anderson, who became a hall-of-fame player at Bishop Loughlin High School before being recruited to Xavier University on a Division I basketball scholarship.
With a passion for winning, this never-back-down point guard became a two-year captain for the Musketeers, leading the nation in steals his junior year. After earning both a Bachelor's and Master's degree from Xavier, Sherwin traveled for a year with the Harlem Globetrotters.
In 2008 Nike, Inc. recognized Sherwin's unique motivational, communication and leadership skills, and retained him to represent and promote the Nike Brand, raising basketball awareness in the People's Republic of China.
In 2000 Sherwin founded The Sherwin Anderson Skills Academy, a non-profit organization dedicated to developing competitive, athletic, and academic excellence in youth regardless of race, religion or economic background.
Sherwin has been instrumental in the lives of hundreds of young people and their families in the Tri-State area. Sherwin's Skills Academy currently serves more than 300 students through camps, leagues, group and individual skill development training.
He is highly regarded nationally as a basketball trainer of elite student athletes, having trained Professionals, Division I College Players, High School All-Americans, and aspiring young people to be highly skilled, fiercely competitive leaders who become winners in every area of life.
