Are the Harlem Ambassadors affiliated with any other teams?

No. Harlem Ambassadors, Inc. is not affiliated with any other “Harlem-style” basketball teams. Harlem Ambassadors, Inc. is headquartered in Fort Collins, CO. There are several aspects of a Harlem Ambassadors event that distinguishes it from other “Harlem-style” shows:  The Harlem Ambassadors game is affordable for an entire family. In addition to the game being affordable, ticket buyers can feel good about purchasing tickets because the money spent on tickets goes to the community organization hosting the event. Many Harlem Ambassadors events are held in a small venue, not a large gymnasium, allowing every audience member to feel like he or she is part of the show. In fact, many audience members, especially the kids, will be involved in the show through interactive games and activities during the game, between the quarters, and during halftime. The Harlem Ambassadors do not bring a stooge team to play against them during the game. Everyone attending a Harlem Ambassadors game will see local celebrities (teachers, coaches, civic officials, firefighters, former college champions, and so on) playing on the challenging team. You can feel good about supporting your local community and hometown heroes by attending a Harlem Ambassadors game.

Who are the Harlem Ambassadors?

The Harlem Ambassadors are young men and women who have attended college, played college basketball, and are drug-free.

The Harlem Ambassadors are coached by Lade Majic, who has performed in more show basketball games than any woman in history.

I’m hosting a Harlem Ambassadors game and wondered if I need to provide entertainment during half-time. Is this necessary?

This makes your job easier; when the game starts you can relax, sit back, and enjoy the show. The Harlem Ambassadors’ announcer will introduce your challenging team players and will emcee the entire game. When the Harlem Ambassadors aren’t thrilling the crowd with high-flying slam dunks, they’ll be entertaining everyone with funny skits and interactive games with the kids, including a half-time activity. Immediately after the game ends, the Harlem Ambassadors will sign autographs for every audience member who wants one.
