Who we are


North Shore Basketball Academy is focused on providing fun, high-quality basketball programming for our community. We pride ourselves in our versatility in serving both the elite athlete pursuing a college career and the 5 year old who is just being introduced to the game (and everyone in between) with the same level of focus, effort and attention. 

We offer year-round programming for youth ages 5-17 including club teams, development leagues, school programs and camps.
