Cruz Basketball Academy (CBA)

We are looking to develop a basketball academy across United Kingdom for young people from 5 -16 years old. Basketball is a great sport to play because it burns calories, increases balance, coordination and endurance, helps improve concentration and encourages the development of teamwork.


Basketball is a great way to ensure your children get the 60 minutes of physical activity a day that they need.


Whether it is introducing your child to the electrifying sport of basketball or providing them with more avenues to advance their sporting aspirations, Cruz Basketball Academy is the programme to stimulate their passion in sports.



Developing their skills at a pace comfortable to them in a fun and exciting environment, the Academy will coach them in fundamental techniques and team tactics. Besides becoming more proficient in basketball, your child will also acquire essential values such as teamwork, honour and resilience during sessions, thus developing a strong character and moral habits from young.

We are very proud of our excellent reputation for training players from around the world as we prepare for upcoming events, seasons, or tournament competition. It is with great honour that we help our player to be at their very best through our comprehensive training and team-building program.

Participants will have the chance to train together in a focused environment with demanding on-court offensive and defensive skill training along with intense off-court strength and conditioning training. Our experienced staff will provide our players with a truly unique bonding experience through training and competition, as well as off-court team building activities.

Our Training program will include:

  • On-court positional basketball skill training

  • Strength and Conditioning; power, speed, agility, flexibility, injury prevention

  • Athletic testing and body-composition evaluation

  • Team-building exercises

  • Team practice times
