The Chico Vaughn Basketball Camps and mentoring programs started in 1979 as free
summer basketball camps for youth in Toledo. They became a big success for the youth
and eventually grew to five states (Ohio, Michigan, Indiana, Tennessee and Delaware).
Founder Cleo "Chico" Vaughn passed away the summer of 2010 and CVSG was born in
honor of him and what he accomplished helping young people of all races. As in the
beginning, its purpose is to help youth become productive citizens in society by teaching
important life skills such as team work, responsibility and perseverance.
The Cleo Vaughn Sports Group (CVSG) operates without regard to race, color, creed or
national origin. CVSG has evolved into a non-profit organization operating with a
tax-deductible EIN and is working on the final stage of becoming a registered 501(c)3
We invite you to read through our pages and experience the accomplishments of not just
Cleo, but of some of the youth that have passed through our doors.
