Harlem Rockets

The Harlem Rockets are a team of well-known, well-trained, talented former college and professional players who excel in comedy basketball at its finest. They specialize in supporting fundraisers for schools and other organizations. The Harlem Rockets offer their services to the community school system on the weekday of each game. Johnny "Magic" Dadzie and The Harlem Rockets will visit your school to put on demonstrations of their comedic tricks and talents. After each performance, they present an educational message to students regarding staying in school, peer pressure, and drug and alcohol abuse. The Harlem Rockets halftime show is second to none. Twenty to thirty students are gathered from the audience to participate. Students can test their basketball skills until there are two finalists, a boy and a girl who receive prizes for their efforts. School visits stress education and hard work and instill pride in students.
