Founded in 1999, Big Apple Basketball (BAB) is a grassroots, not-for-profit organization that hosts basketball tournaments, conducts clinics, offers college scholarship programs, mentoring programs and manages touring teams. Since its founding, Big Apple Basketball has grown steadily, launching a full slate of athletic and educational programming and events in April 2003.
Big Apple Basketball is designed to use basketball as a “tool” to assist young people in their athletic, educational, professional and life skill development.
Our organization continues to create an environment promoting educational excellence and basketball events for the purpose of obtaining college scholarships, exposure, internships, employment and networking opportunities for its participants.
Big Apple Basketball serves as an asset to the community by serving as a clearinghouse to educate and assist parents on the process of finding and selecting those academic, athletic, and scholarship programs best suited to the needs of their children. Big Apple Basketball works closely with college and high school coaches to identify academically qualified students, build contacts between schools, and to facilitate the transition from high school to college athletics for student-athletes.
In addition, BAB reaches out to other community groups, sharing resources and collaborating on events in order to achieve a common goal of educating and supporting youth and families.
Big Apple Basketball is always expanding its horizons, to more effectively reach a greater number of people within New York City, domestically and internationally.
Now the time is right for Big Apple Basketball and everyone involved with its programs to expand its horizons.
