MEET THE TEAM
Director of Youth Basketball
Kieon Arkwright, a Flint, MI native, leads the Nuggets Basketball Academy. He is currently the Director of Youth Basketball, which includes directing the Nuggets Academy’s summer basketball camps, clinics, and fan engagement programs. Arkwright holds a BA degree from University of Texas Pan American. He also spent a few years playing professionally in Central America, and after hanging up his sneakers, he focused on training other players and constantly learning new techniques.
In addition to Denver Nuggets PG Monte Morris, Arkwright also trains WNBA superstar Skylar Diggins and many pros who make their living overseas. Arkwright has made his mark in the youth basketball world by running clinics for major shoe companies in the U.S. and establishing a clinic base worldwide. In Denver, Arkwright sees a situation that is like his time spent in Japan: a chance to lay the foundation in a largely fragmented youth basketball scene in the city.
