Foundation Basketball will now be offering Before School Academy. Our Before School Academy will be offered at our ACTS  location and will open at 6:30 am. 


We promote a safe, fun after school environment where homework completion and mentoring come first and basketball training is required for all participants. 

 

Our After School basketball program runs from early release school 2 pm-6 pm and late release schools from 3 pm-6 pm. We offer transportation for 3rd grade and up. We offer transportation from:

 

Tomahawk Creek Middle School

A snack, study time, basketball skill lessons, and an After School Developmental League in our after school program for players at various levels.

 

Children will enjoy fundamental skill instruction.  Players will improve individual skills such as foot work, passing, dribbling, shooting, rebounding, and defending while learning how to play on a team. Boys and girls grades 4-8 and all skill levels are encouraged to join.

 

Daily Training Schedule:

 

1. Student Athletes are transported from local schools to FBG.

2. Student Athletes complete their homework

3. Skills Training begins after homework is complete. Programs are customized based on development areas per individual

After School Academy League:

3. The second game of the week will be a 5-on-5, full-court game. This game will reinforce what the players learned in the half-court game and in the daily training.

Testimonial for the After School Academy:

 

 

What a positive impact The Foundation Basketball Group has given my son. In December of 2010 my son was placed on an association basketball team where the boys were much bigger than him. The intimidation was going to hold him back from playing the sport he loved the most. Although he loves basketball, he needed the skills to feel confident in the sport. When I found The Foundation Basketball Group online, I called immediately.   What a relief, not only do they pick him up from school every day, he is leaning the fundamentals of basketball, confidence and staying active every day.   He had a wonderful basketball season due to David Anderson and his coaches at The Foundation Basketball Group. They have proven that their goal is to help every player to have confidence on the court and become a better player. If you are looking for an after school programů.. this is the one!   Affordable, convenient and your child will walk away every day with more confidence.
