Welcome to Inner City Players Athletics

Inner City Players Athletics was established in Portland, Oregon in 1997. The mission was simple:

"Use the game of basketball as a motivational vehicle for inner city youth to DREAM!"
Through this vision, program founder, Canaan Chatman and his staff practice a comprehensive approach to student athlete development, through our "Challenge and Encourage " techniques. From the beginning of our programming in 1997, ICP Athletics holds a 98% high school completion rate, with over 200 student athletes attending college institutions.
