The Academy is for athletes who are serious about wanting a competitive advantage and want to play at they're next level. Our goal is to provide a well structured learning Academy while inspiring heart, passion, work ethic and improving the game of basketball in our community. Our last season we competed in the top AAU tournaments in Canada and the United States where we competed against the Puerto Rican 15U National team and the number three ranked AAU team in the United States. The Academy strives to give their players exposure to the highest levels of the game.
