Junior Academy Basketball

For players looking to develop their game in a team setting.


The Junior Academy returns as we hit the indoor courts this fall!

With the Junior Academy, we’ve created the perfect balance of training and gameplay. We have elite, experienced coaches who have the talent to put your child at the center of the experience. In fact, each Junior Academy coach has experience at both the grassroots level fostering kids’ love of the game, and at the travel level where kids are competing at the highest level.

With the focus on developing the technical, tactical, and psychological components to be a great basketball player, we give our students the confidence, and support they need to develop while having an incredible sports experience. And all while respecting mom and dad’s time!

More Details

No equipment required other than shoes with rubber soles.

Keeping players safe is our number one priority. We are committed to providing a healthy environment following all CDC, state, and county guidance on safety standards. At this time, we have been told that we will be able to hold practices in the school gyms with players and coaches wearing face coverings. We will adjust our policy to comply with the most current Covid-19 restrictions as they are updated.


Yearly Calendar

We hold four seasons over the year, with 2-3 weeks in between each season.

A year-long commitment to the Junior Academy is not required. Many players in the Junior Academy may eventually play for our Competitive Teams, however, our goal is to develop each player and make sure they have opportunities to play at a level that best suits them.
