Programs

What makes our programs special? 

To us, sports are just high-energy social opportunities. Come to a clinic and your athlete will learn to dribble, throw, run…whatever! The real magic is in the social experience. Our coaches care about our players and work hard to foster teamwork and relationships among everyone involved.

We also offer league programs that give athletes with special needs the chance to play right alongside their typically-functioning peers. All players make the team and after a couple practice sessions, the games begin! Each season features 5+ games with high school or college basketball teams. We scramble the teams so our players get to play WITH their typical peers, not against.

Thanks to the generous support of our sponsors and the community, all programs are offered at low or no cost to participants.
