About Us

Our Philosophy

In the summer of 2015, Phillips Basketball & Academics Academy was born. What started as a small summer camp of 20 students has since taken off, with more than 150 students enrolled in our programs throughout the year. We strive to transform our students’ performance on and off the court by fostering an environment where all athletes understand the importance of being a student-athlete.

At PBAA, we are more than just an academy, we are a familydedicated to helping our players strengthen their basketball, academic, and knowledge of self. We strive to build young men and women that will have purpose and give back to their community

just a few years our program has grown to includea:

  • Community Programs related to basketball
  • Weekend House League
  • Summer Camp
  • Individualized development training
  • 4 Competitive teams for boys and girls

Parents, “we couldn’t do it without you” it takes teamwork. Being parents ourselves, we work and communicate with you to establish core and individual goals to help with your child’s academic and basketball development, getting to know your child better help us better understand what it will take to help them achieve their goals.
