OUR STORY

Our Teams are in a focused training program to become professionals, albeit in something other than basketball. Their route will take them through one of the many fine colleges or universities renowned for their high standards of academic excellence and the success of their basketball program.

Our basketball players are focused on the end-goal of becoming professionals, at which time basketball will still be played for passion after all their work is done for the day. Like everything they do, they take it seriously and perform with both full effort and enthusiasm. That approach has gotten them to where they are today and is what will drive and motivate them on their own personal roads towards success.

This is our story – the Academic Basketball Club, Stamford Connecticut USA. Founded 2008.

We have two 17u Teams comprised of players in the 10th and 11th grades with a minimum GPA of 3.3 required to play. Our players are headed to prestigious academic colleges, primarily targeting the NESCAC, UAA, Liberty, E8, GNAC, NEWMAC, Commonwealth, Centennial, NCAC, SCAC, SCIAC and ODAC in D-3. Some players will hopefully achieve recruitment by the NE 10, Ivy and Patriot Leagues if we can help them develop to that level. To this point, we play our schedule of tournaments and exposure events chasing access to and playing in front of coaches from these schools, relentlessly and with the same enthusiasm and focus with which our players attack every assignment and task with.

Over the past 15 years, players involved with the programs have gone on to play (or are on their way to playing) at Bowdoin (4), Hamilton (3), Middlebury (6), Williams, Tufts, Bates, Colby, Trinity, Wesleyan (3), Connecticut College (3), Vassar (2), RPI (2), St Lawrence (4), Union (3), Bard, Swarthmore (2), Franklin & Marshall, Washington College, MIT, Babson, Clark, Rochester (2), Case Western, Carnegie Mellon, Wash U, Brandeis, NYU (2), Grinnell (3), Kenyon (2), Denison, Macalester, Washington & Lee, Birmingham Southern, Sewanee, Colorado College (2), Claremont McKenna (3), Pomona, Sarah Lawrence, Emmanuel, Franklin Pierce, American, Rice, Depaul, Fairfield, Furman, Vanderbilt, Elon, Holy Cross, Colgate, Binghamton, UMBC, Monmouth, Sacred Heart (2), Quinnipiac (2), FDU, Duke (2) and UConn. In addition to the basketball players, several members are at schools in these same conferences and haven chosen to play a different sport. However they got there, the exclamation mark is on their success in having gotten into the schools of their respective choices.
