Smith Basketball Academy is an organization focused on teaching life skills and developing young female athletes through the game of basketball. Our unique structure is designed to work with athletes starting in 5th grade, and help them to develop properly so that by high school they are ready to compete, communicate and handle adversity on and off the court.
Our coaches have seen a deterioration of fundamental skills, knowledge of the game, and attitudes in youth sports and we believe that our process will help to build those fundamentals back up.
After decades of college coaching, the directors of SBA have created a new way of organizing an AAU program.
We have experienced firsthand the benefits a person gets from learning life skills through the game of basketball, and believe it is time to pay that forward to the next generation of young female athletes.
