We’re an AAU basketball program based in Lansing, Michigan. Our mission is simple. It’s to mentor and develop talented youth basketball players. Through a dedicated and experienced coaching staff using fundamental basketball philosophies, we are cultivating the stars of tomorrow.

It takes an incredible commitment from selfless and caring individuals to give their time and experience to the teachings of any young person.

In sport as it is in general education, the role of the teacher (coach) is to impart wisdom, leadership, encouragement and guidance so that the youth of today will go on to become productive and successful adults. Our coaches personify that balance for our kids. We are proud to have them as part of our organization. Please reach out to them and get to know them. It is a two way street to success.
