Basketball Academy 2014cIn its 21st year, the Basketball Academy is held every year with a commitment to students and athletics.  The Academy started in the 90’s as an effort to  start a tournament of its own with an academic component that would ultimately make a difference in the lives of these youth amidst failing SAT scores and academic achievement.

Here are some quick facts of the Basketball Academy:

  • Many of the students that have taken part have learned new skills and gone on to college.
  • Scholar athletes are awarded savings bonds for outstanding academic achievement.
  • More than 11,000 students have participated.
  • Over $136,000 worth of scholarships have been distributed to worthy young people in our area.
  • Has proven to be a successful program, offering students, administrators, parents, and the greater community more than just a game.
  • The Basketball Academy has proven that Academics + Athletics = A Win/Win Combination.

The Basketball Academy has rescheduled games from last week due to inclement weather for January 20 & 21st. Please visit the Basketball Academy  for updates and scheduling visit http://bballacademy.com/schedules/game/
