Program Details & Philosophy

Bay City Basketball’s AAU (Amateur Athletic Union) Team program is a competitive, developmental basketball experience that provides players with the tools to develop their fundamental team basketball skills as well as individual concepts necessary to take their game to the next level.

Through persistence and commitment, the
 Bay City Basketball coaching staff will teach players values of integrity, respect for self and opponents, selflessness, responsibility, teamwork, tenacity, and leadership. The Bay City Basketball youth program seeks to develop the student athletes’ life skills and personal growth through the sport of basketball.

Positive reinforcement serves as the basis of our coaching philosophy. We are highly competitive and will push our players to be the best that they are capable of and at the end of the day we value team and personal growth over winning.
