DRIVE5 BASKETBALL ACADEMY

EXPERIENCE THE MIDWEST'S TOP BASKETBALL ACADEMY

The Drive5 Basketball Academy is an innovative and comprehensive basketball training academy for players who are committed to striving for excellence in the sport of basketball. We offer year-round academy sessions, led by our USA Basketball Certified coaching staff, where players learn and develop individual fundamentals of the game, and improve as overall athletes.

OUR APPROACH

We teach young athletes the skills needed to be successful at any level of the game that they aspire to playing at. While these goals are different for each individual, the focus is the same - to help each player reach his or her highest potential and develop as a complete player. In addition to helping kids grow and learn as individuals, the academy also fosters a sense of community among academy players. Although many players are on competing teams outside of the academy, they develop friendships and respect for one another through mutual goals, hard work, and love for the game.
