let's hoop

The Basketball Academy programs are designed to accelerate the learning process through outstanding instruction, skill development, situational training, scrimmages, and games (leagues only). Participants learn to improve footwork, dribbling, passing, shooting, and defensive abilities through exciting drills and game scenarios.

Older participants learn advanced concepts, such as man-to-man, zone, and help defense; fast breaks, boxing out, and setting screens. Classes and leagues are for kids who are interested in developing their basketball game in a fun, safe, and exciting environment.
