The New Zealand Basketball Academy was formed in 2010 by a group of experienced New Zealand basketball coaches and parent managers who had a desire to promote the student athlete lifestyle and educational opportunities through basketball.
We continue to improve our High Performance Camps & Las Vegas Tour Experience that provides a scholarship pathway for our players. We are so proud that 80+ of our student-athletes - with the assistance of their parents - have acquired scholarships in the USA and beyond. We are privileged to be a part of your journey!
WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT US
"Our family has been volunteers with the NZBA since 2013. We have had a variety of roles including managing, coaching and now as committee members. Our two children have played through the age groups with our son, Aniwaniwa currently on scholarship in Hawaii USA and our daughter Isabella is preparing for her third tour. The NZBA allows players to learn and improve their game and supports players to reach their basketball potential".
