B 10 Oxford/Orion Progress Edition 2016 Basketball America is the perfect opportunity for young athletes


Every evening Basketball America is flooded with young athletes, whether its girls’ vol- leyball night, or boys dribbling down the courts.


Kids three to seventeen years old can be- gin learning the benefits of team sports at this multi-purpose facility. Players can sign up for a team or individually be placed on a team.


Since the flood back in July 2011, a com- plete remodel has taken place. The biggest (and best) part of the project is the new courts they had installed.


“The new courts are amazing! They are a floating, hardwood maple, and it makes it so nice to play on. It’s tailored to an athlete – easy on the joints and more versatile for ev- ery kind of player.”


The courts aren’t the only improvement. The birthday party room, the bathrooms, the kitchen and more were completely remodeled. The birthday room was expanded to twice its size, which allows for bigger birthday parties; something every kid wants!


“Parents love that they don’t have to limit the number of kids who are invited to their child’s birthday party. And we

love to see them all out here having fun,” said Otto.


And have fun they do! Since opening over


20 years ago, Otto said they have seen mul- tiple kids go on to play school basketball and volleyball. “Many of the kids who play here go on to make their middle school, high school, and even college teams. I love it when we start off coach- ing someone at such a young age, and see them


grow and learn and really develop their game. “They always come back to thank us for help- ing them make the team, and it’s such a great honor to know that we’ve assisted them.” With such great programs running at Bas- ketball America, or BA as many people know it, it’s easy to see why the local community loves this business.


Young athletes learn how to hustle on the basketball courts.


Not only do they offer youth and adult leagues for basketball and volleyball, there is open gym, weekly skills clinics, private les- sons, birthday parties, AAU tournaments, and a fully stocked, delicious grill/kitchen. “I love being a part of this community. It’s really made the past 20 years great,” Otto commented. A Spring Break Volleyball Camp is coming soon. Session One is on Tuesday, April 5,
