Mission

SBA Bucks logo

To provide a year round comprehensive program dedicated to the advancement of the serious player. The program offers an environment in which to develop the skills needed to play at the high school and college level. While the goal is to be competitive, SBA is committed to training and player development. Our staff of instructors is directly involved in the program. For this reason we only have one team in each age group. The emphasis of this program is to educate the whole person, not only in individual skill sets, but athletic values, importance of academics, nutrition, and team / leadership skills. Clearly provided rules for the codes of conduct for players and parents will be strictly enforced.
