Steph, LeBron, Durant, or any of the basketball greats all had to start somewhere. The problem is most players don't get introduced to the game the right way and develop bad habits. As excited as your child is to step on the court, a basic understanding of how to shoot, dribble, defend, and pass is important. Our experienced coaching staff works hard to teach your child the fundamentals and transform your athlete's skillset in a fun, safe and energetic environment. Each session includes skill development and games via 5-on-5 teams!

Team Esface brings so much more to the boys with expectations on training, health and sportsmanship, the intangibles that make this organization so very different from the others we have tried. Well worth it and the families they attracted are a bonus in that it is a community that you want to be with on and off the court.

Our coaching staff is a group of patient energetic teachers that played at the collegiate level.
What does it mean to be a patient energetic teacher?

These years, ages 6-9, are formative. To be effective, we must be positive, empathetic coaches. Empathetic towards each athlete's skill level and development. Not everyone learns how to do a crossover in the first 10 minutes, but with patience and energy they can get there by the end of the session. It's about having fun and getting better and providing a positive, safe, and encouraging environment.


Neo Prep creates a fun low stakes energetic environment that attracts the attention of young players and encourages them to try new things and to get out of their comfort zone while on the court.

Our curriculum challenges players to try new things and get out of their comfort zone while on the court. Every week we focus on the core fundamentals (shooting, dribbling, rebounding, and defense). The core of every curriculum is to instill a strong mind, body and skillset needed to become a top-level basketball player.

At the end of every Neo Prep workout session, players will play with teams in a low stakes environment to apply the skills learned during the skills sessions. These games also teach our young athletes how to play with others and build camaraderie and friendships.
