All kids are great in their own unique and special way. When it comes to sports and games at an early age kids must first enjoy what they're doing before they can be great at it. To achieve greatness in sports or anything you do you have to work hard it and as parents know, when you enjoy what you're doing it doesn't feel like work. Our philosophy at Kid Ballers is to let kids enjoy the game. We believe one of the best ways to keep kids motivated is to make what they are doing fun.


At Kid Ballers we will be teaching kids the basic fundamentals of playing basketball and letting them have fun while doing so. Your child will not only learn basketball fundamentals but they will also learn how to work in a team environment which will help their communication and social skills. Our kids basketball program will help build self esteem while teaching your kids how to respect themselves and others. We want all kids at Kid Ballers to know that they have a voice and not to be afraid to use it.

Coach Carlton:

I have been playing basketball for as long as I can remember. I started playing in public school and continued straight through my high school years and then into college. Playing the game of basketball gave me the opportunity to develop some life long friendships and I was able to travel to places where I probably would never have visited. Basketball also helped me realize the importance of hard work, not just in sport but it helped me prepare for life in general as I got older and became more independent.
