We have Academy Teams who play year round in the Grapevine Fieldhouse League!  This gives players a chance to develop their skills and build their team chemistry.  We use this league to build our teams and prepare them for tournament play.   

We are seeking players who want to join our academy teams and want to:

  • Play year round
  • Work hard on developing their skills outside of practice
  • Contribute to a team and join our basketball family

“This is a top notch organization! One of the best things my child was ever a part of! Great coaches of the game of basketball, but most importantly leaders and role models of what young men should be.”
