About: When it comes to AAU basketball, Connecticut Basketball Academy is committed to providing our players and parents with the best possible experience and value in the state of Connecticut. We base our program out of Notre Dame High School, where we have access to top notch facilities and training aids. Our coaching staff is made up of former college players and current high school coaches. 

AAU Philosophy: When parents shop around for Connecticut AAU basketball programs they usually finds one of two types, "game focused" or "skill focused". We focus on both at Connecticut Basketball Academy. Players will practice with their teams once a week for 90 minutes and train individually on their skill sets for an additional 3 hours a week during the AAU season. We want to develop the individual player so when he/she leaves our program it is clear how much improvement has been made. 

Teams: Boys & Girls ages 7-18 are eligible to tryout for our CBA teams. Players will be placed on teams based on age and skill level. $25 tryout fee

Connecticut Basketball Academy National Teams

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. What is the difference between CBA's regular AAU teams and it's national teams?

A. CBA national teams are privately sponsored and will play in the highest level tournaments and levels of AAU basketball

Q. Does national team mean teams will travel around the country?

A. Not necessarily. New England is EXTREMELY lucky to have such a high concentration of "Live NCAA Tournaments" making it unnecessary to travel around the country for exposure, however, CBA national teams may travel to places like New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Maryland for certain tournaments and depending on the team's success during the spring season possibly further.

Q. Can anyone play on one of CBA's national teams?

A. Unfortunately no. In order for CBA to keep it's sponsorship it is very important that our teams are able to compete and win at high level events. These events have teams from around the country with many of the best high school players in the county competing.

Q. Can I tryout for one of these teams?

A. Yes. CBA coaches are always evaluating players at our camps, skill training, individual workouts, and of course AAU tryouts. It is important to remember that all of our AAU teams will play in exposure type tournaments  so not making a national team should not discourage a player and there is always a chance that a player from a CBA Connecticut Team can be brought up to one of our national teams. 

Q. If I'm not on one of CBA's National teams why should I still play AAU with Connecticut Basketball Academy?

A. It is important for parents and players to remember that only 1% of all high school players that play AAU basketball will play on a sponsored team. Not playing on a sponsored team does not mean you are not a good player who can potentially play in college someday. CBA AAU basketball provides players and parents the opportunity to improve their games significantly while playing a highly competitive Spring AAU schedule. Our high school aged non-sponsored teams will absolutely play in tournaments that are attended by college coaches.
