Basketball in the White Bear Lake Area

One of our key goals is to help White Bear Area basketball players find the best basketball option. We believe in the power of basketball to build confident kids who learn how to work hard the right way to achieve their goals.

We have information for all teams at all levels of competition in White Bear Lake from Kindergarten through high school seniors. See the different pages of our site for more information.

Contact the administration of the program for more information on cost and scholarships.
