Basketball Academy

Focus on the FUNdamentals

Be Gr8 Basketball Academy offers basketball training in a fun and competitive environment for youth ages 5 to 14. Our motto is to "Focus on the FUNdamentals" by assisting young athletes in developing and mastering technical skills that will translate to team play. 



& Vision

Our mission is to use the game of basketball as a tool to unlock Gr8ness in our young athletes on and off the court. At a time where involvement in youth sports is on a decline, we hope to bring back the love of the game to the South Bay and Los Angeles communities.


We pride ourselves on upholding the highest caliber of teaching, and our vision is to care for each athlete’s individual growth through personalized skill development and sportsmanship. And it is our priority to assist young athletes as they not only grow their basketball skill-set, but also their development as emotionally mature youth.
