Description & History
Big Apple Basketball is designed to use basketball as a “tool” to assist young people in their athletic, educational, professional and life skill development. Big Apple Basketball serves as an asset to the community by serving as a clearinghouse to educate and assist parents on the process of finding and selecting those academic, athletic, and scholarship programs best suited to the needs of their children. Big Apple Basketball works closely with college and high school coaches to identify academically qualified students, build contacts between schools, and to facilitate the transition from high school to college athletics for student-athletes. In addition, BAB reaches out to other community groups, sharing resources and collaborating on events in order to achieve a common goal of educating and supporting youth and families.
