New SBA Basketball Teams Forming
Are you or your son looking for a new basketball program with quality training and an opportunity to travel and play better competition at an affordable price? Then you and your friends should know that SCHOLASTIC BASKETBALL ACADEMY is now branching out from the Inland Empire to establish travel teams based out of the Los Angeles County area! We are currently in search of young experienced ball players of all positions to fill rosters for new travel teams of the following age groups:
Boys 10 & Under / 4th Grade Division
Boys 11 & Under / 5th Grade Division
Boys 12 & Under / 6th Grade Division
Long-time Bellflower youth mentor and All City Crew basketball program founder Joe "Coach Earv" Warren will be the Director for these new teams. Coach Earv has over a decade of experience coaching young men and women between the ages of seven to seventeen through rec leagues and AAU ball. In Bellflower alone he has been instrumental in the development of numerous young ball players through his involvement with the Bellflower Youth Basketball League, club teams and the Bellflower High School boys basketball program. He was recognized for his volunteer efforts in the community by the "Bellflower Honors" program and the "Bellflower Citizen" in 2003. Earv is confident that you or your child will receive excellent training, learning the basic fundamentals of the game while competing against a higher level of competition than the local park and rec leagues.
The focus of these new teams will be on DEVELOPMENT, not winning games. Though we certainly will aim to be competitive, the measure of our success will not rely solely on how many wins and losses we end up with. SBA coaches are more concerned with teaching each of our players the right way to play the game of basketball through countless hours of drills and skill development training. We will have "real" practices. We will conduct hard workouts that will challenge each member of our program at every talent level. You or your son will become a smarter, stronger and better prepared ball player ready to compete at the next level.
We are looking for talented student-athletes that are committed and willing to perform at a high level on and off the basketball court. Each member of our family must strive to maintain a minimum grade point average of 3.0 in school and be willing to participate in all SBA fundraising activities. Normal practices will be held twice a week in the city of Bellflower at either Simms or Thompson Park beginning early November. Games will normally be on the weekends. Our AAU season will run from November through July.
