RICHMOND, VA (April 29, 2015) -- The special relationship between Coach Del Harris and Tyrese Rice began 15 years ago. As a physical education teacher at Bailey Bridge Middle School in Chesterfield County and assistant AAU coach for the Richmond Squires, Del first met Tyrese as a student at Falling Creek Middle School. Harris would later become Team Richmond AAU boys head coach for the 16 and 17 teams and continued to quietly nurture the talent and skills Tyrese developed during his AAU career.  Both quiet and unassuming young men, an enduring friendship developed out of their love of the game of basketball and their mutual respect, humility and appreciation for their blessings.

Today, Del is an experienced NCAA men’s basketball coach and Tyrese is a professional basketball player whose bond is stronger than ever. Their mutual respect, love for the game and young people led to the creation of this unique academy experience. The Del Harris Basketball Academy is designed to give back to the community at large and help boys and girls in the greater Richmond area enhance and improve their basketball skills at all levels. With the focus on creating a positive learning environment, Del and Tyrese are passionate about sharing their life and professional experiences believe this program will benefit anyone who wants to work hard and be a better basketball player.
