The Academy Basketball Program
Since its founding in January of 2011, the ACADEMY Basketball program has expanded from 20 members to over 130. We have boys and girls ages 8-17 in the program. Our staff has included college age and older coaches who have played basketball in high school, college, and professionally. The program is a YEAR ROUND program. We believe that consistency and chemistry between the staff and players are the keys to true progress.
Although our focus is skill development, we offer team participation in local leagues along with the opportunity for players to tryout for traveling teams that are involved in NCAA sanctioned tournaments that do not interfere with our sessions or the leagues.
OUR SESSIONS are set up to offer both skill development and team concepts. During the school year (Fall, Winter, Spring), our SKILLS sessions and TEAM sessions are held on Saturdays from 11:00-1:00 PM and Sundays 1:00-3:00 PM.
SUMMER: Skills sessions are Mondays from 11:00AM-1:00 PM and Team Concepts are Wednesdays 11:00 AM-1:00 PM.
****Please check our schedules under Program Schedules on the menu. There can be changes.
Our coaching staff has a deep and varied background. They all played high school basketball while some have played or are playing basketball in college. One coach played professionally. The young men and women of our staff are dedicated to the development of all of our players. Don't hesitate to email us!
