Sharks Travel Basketball

The strength of the team is each individual member. The strength of each member is the team.

Basketball is a beautiful game when the five players on the court play with one heartbeat.

Sharks Basketball Academy has a network of travel teams from 3rd grade through 12th grade.

Our vision at Sharks is to provide students that have the passion to play basketball an outlet to do so. We give each player that walks into our facilities the tools to enhance their skillset. In addition, we teach them camaraderie, sportsmanship, and teamwork. 

Our travel ball operates on a seasonal basis and varies for individual age groups. During the season we practice 2 to 3 times a week and compete in tournaments on the weekends. Tournaments usually run all day long and we play a minimum of 3 games per tournament.
