Welcome to the United Sports Academy's Basketball program. We are proud to serve the Siouxland as a premier option for basketball development.

We have summer basketball teams for boys and girls grades 3rd - 11th. We also have winter teams, which do exclude our high school players who are encouraged to play on their school teams. For athletes unable to commit to a team, we have an excellent Basketball Skills Only option available at various times throughout the year. With this, the athlete gets to attend a skills session each week as well as open gym time to further improve their skill set. Throughout the year, there will be different camps available as well as private or group lessons. For our younger athletes, TK - 3rd grade, we offer camps and one-time programs throughout the year.
