Board Of Directors

We are privileged to operate in a community rich with basketball enthusiasts (a.k.a. gym rats) and leaders who are generous with their time. Through the years, many wonderful individuals have helped shape the Kreul. From our founders to our volunteers, our organization is built by and continues to thrive from amazing people who have stepped up and taken charge.  This dynamic roster of board members is currently administering our game plan.
