Practice With A Pro
The “SBA Practice with the Pros” clinics are a once in a lifetime chance for area youth to play with and learn from former NBA Players, professional and collegiate athletes, and current professional SBA Street Ball All-Stars. The SBA initiates activities in a fun, safe, and positive environment, to help build character, confidence, responsibility, accountability, and a host of other qualities that will aid in personal, family, and community development within the youth in an effort to encourage, motivate, and teach young athletes to maximize their potential in sports, school, and life.
The Street Basketball Association is an independent professional association of players and teams throughout the U.S. established to promote and showcase their knowledge, execution, and love of “street ball.” Street ball is a distinct form of basketball in which fundamental skills are combined with innovative ball handling skills and uncanny athleticism.

The SBA has developed opportunities for basketball enthusiasts to take part in the explosive demand for basketball by creating the SBA Practice with the Pros Clinic featuring the top SBA All-Stars, former NBA players, and staff available.
