BCI invites you to join like-minded friends in Beaver Creek, Colorado this July for Man Up: Living the Dream without Missing the Point, a retreat dedicated to the unique needs of pro basketball players. Players will arrange their own airfare, lodging, and incidentals but BCI will take care of the rest.

Coming soon...

Keynote Speaker: Michael Franzese


Michael Franzese is the only high ranking official of a major crime family to ever walk away, without protective custodies, and survive. He's a "man with a mission" to share his inspiring and motivational story of fame, power, prestige, love and fear.

Michael's experiences and books have been featured throughout the country on high profile media.
