George Zap

“My kids joined BBA a few months ago and it became their favorite place . My 6 year-old girl is enjoying every single practice thanks to the coaches! The professional approach to kids teaching them not only how to play basketball but how to be a good team! My 14 year-old son never played basketball before but with the help of dedicated and hardworking coaches he’s made a tremendous improvement! Would definitely recommend this place for every kid who likes to play basketball and is looking to improve on and off the court!”

“Professional coaches, very dedicated to helping the kids do their best through an special approach to each age group. My 6 year-old thinks it’s a lot of fun, while the 13 year-old told me these are the most serious practices he has ever had. They both refuse to miss a practice (had to rearrange my little ones birthday party to fit the basketball schedule!). Very thankful for this place!”
