Academic Basketball Club
A grassroots program borne of inspiration and desire to fill a need by and for the caring
Remember To Have Fun
Acquiris Quodcumque Rapis
Proper Preparation not only Prevents Poor Performance, it puts us in a position to succeed. That is our goal!
Our Teams are in a focused training program to become professionals, albeit in something other than basketball. Their route will take them through one of the many fine colleges or universities renowned for their high standards of academic excellence and the proven success of their basketball program.
Our basketball players are focused on the end-goal of becoming professionals, at which time basketball will still be played for passion after all their work is done for the day. Like everything they do, they take it seriously and perform with both full effort and enthusiasm. That approach has gotten them to where they are today and is what will drive and motivate them on their own personal roads towards success.
