For seven years, The United States Wall Ball Association (USWA) has provided more than 2,000 young athletes from New York City with an opportunity to realize their full potential with only a ball…a wall…and a dream. The USWA is a not-for-profit national organization that utilizes the sport of Wall Ball (known to many as “handball”) to motivate and inspire young people in underserved communities throughout the New York metropolitan area, to stay in school, embrace a healthy lifestyle, and pursue positive alternatives to drug use and violent behavior. Categorized as a 501(c)(3), the USWA was founded in 2010 by entrepreneur Jasmine Ray who was inspired to create the organization in memory of her then, 16 year old Brother Jonathan Ray.
