SOUL OF THE GAME
Come experience it with DK3
MEET OUR FOUNDER
Grew up in Orange County, CA, a Sacramento State University alum and a current resident of Mooresville, NC, David Kiley, a.k.a 'DK,' is one of the most well-known and respected wheelchair basketball athletes of the past 40+ years. A Paralympic Multi-Gold Medalist with decades of experience as a player and a coach, he has transformed the sport of wheelchair basketball through his innovative leadership, ideas and visionary approach; hence the nickname "The King." DK is committed to seeing 3x3 wheelchair basketball (DK3) played in a unique format in different cities across the United States and the world while supporting 3x3 into the Paralympic Games by 2028. DK is also a loving husband to his wife Sandy, proud father of two children, Justin and Danielle, and a grandpa to Cruz, Lucas, and Lily. Family means the most to DK next to God.
