Steve Allen and Cilk McSweeney founded Kingdom Training, Inc. in 2009 based out of Fort Lauderdale, FL and other training locations around South Florida, with a desire and commitment to change young children’s lives through the game of basketball. Our mission is to change lives by “Building Champions” one life at a time.
As highly touted high school basketball players we won State Championship titles at Dillard High School before moving on to play Division 1 Basketball at Clemson University and Penn State. Our passion for the game, has allowed us to play all over the world professionally, and has created opportunities for us to work closely with guys like Lebron James, Dwayne Wade, Carmelo Anthony, and many others. We have decided to take the life lessons and the mastery of skills we’ve developed, to help youth basketball players achieve their goals and reach new heights through the game of basketball.
It is our belief, that through this sport we can help today’s youth develop a Kingdom mindset, which allows them to be fully confident and strive to reach their maximum potential as they look ahead to the bright future that comes with hard work and determination. Through our journey with basketball, we know not everyone is going to make it to be professional players, but the qualities and skills you learn through athletics are things that will be preserved for life and some of the friends you meet will also be for life. Steve and Cilk met at the age of 15 playing on the same travel basketball team, becoming best friends and then later Steve became family by marrying Cilk’s sister. Basketball has been something that has turned them from teammates to friends to now brothers.
