Basketball is a great game that is played by millions of young people in the United States and around the world. Brooklyn Basketball Academy (BBA), fosters the development of peer relationships, self-esteem, leadership qualities, and physical health. To date, however, local youth basketball leagues and academy in Miami -Dade County lacked guidelines around health and wellness and consistent game play standards for these young youth athletes. To help foster player health, age- and stage-appropriate skill development, and a positive and enjoyable on-court experience for young people, Brooklyn Basketball Academy (BBA), have developed a set of rules and standards to enhance the playing experience for young athletes. These guidelines aim to combat the overemphasis on early competitive success and the lack of a clear development pathway through the sport – two issues that exist across youth sports, including basketball. Brooklyn Basketball Academy (BBA), are committed to helping shape a youth basketball environment that prioritizes the health and well-being of young athletes and promotes their enjoyment and development in the game.

BBA’s basketball program focuses on position-specific instruction, a competitive schedule, year-round training and development, and frequent communication and evaluations for student-athletes and their families regarding their progress. BBA basketball looks to feature a variety of teams at various levels and age ranges to ensure each student-athlete has an enriching experience while competing against teams that will further develop their potential.

With as much of an emphasis placed on academics and college placement as on athletic development, BBA student-athletes will have access to a support team that will help shape their future and ensure that they’re pursuing their passions both on and off the court. During pre-season, student-athletes undergo an BBA-style combine testing evaluation to determine their current level as well as their strengths and areas in need of development.

BBA places a significant emphasis on strength and conditioning during this time before progressing towards game preparation and team strategies during the season. Throughout the year, coaches place an emphasis on individual skill development, small group training, and team workouts and instruction. Once the season concludes during Sept-February, student-athletes can take advantage of conditioning programs, tournaments, 1-on-1 training and innovative on-and-off court programming to further prepare for the upcoming season.
