The MBA Team Program is designed to be a competitve youth basketball program. The Maryland Basketball Academy (MBA) provides a safe, positive, instructional environment for motivated players to develop and reach their potential.
All teams are coached by a paid professional. Our program is more expensive as a result. Our paid coaching staff combined with our proven process make our program the best fit for players looking to be challenged, get better and compete at a high level. Our insight, training, communication, professionalism and love of teaching is what makes our program so successful.
Our teaching and training based team program is the best solution for players looking to earn more time playing with their middle and high school teams. We know what HS coaches expect from their players because Erick Graves and Steve Watson are high school coaches.
Playing time will be based on several factors during practices including attitude, effort, skills, understanding team concepts, ability to execute, and intangibles. The opportunity to learn, develop and get better is equal but playing time is not.
The benefit of MBA is the training, the practices and the skills development that is done during our pracitices. Players that can execute during practices will be able to execute during games. Players that need more practice and development will get less time in games. All players will have equal time in all practices and training sessions to demonstrate their abilities and earn playing time during games.
Alumni from our Prime and Core teams have enjoyed success playing with their Middle, JV and Varsity teams. Our academy provides a strong foundation for players looking to play for their middle and high school teams.
