The SEMO Rainmakers are registered as a non-profit organization in Missouri. This organization was founded in January 2014 by Thomas White as a means to help his son sharpen his basketball skills and teach him to display the confidence of a champion on the basketball court. One team quickly became two teams in 2014 in order to provide an age division for his nephew to play too. The first season made such an impact on the players that when we gathered for our first practice in 2015 twenty-five boys showed up for the 8th grade practice alone. The Rainmakers are all about helping kids get better and never wish to turn anyone away.
