About Us

We provide an excellent foundation for youth athletes to grow into strong future leaders, having learned how to be good teammates and believe in themselves.

In addition to our leagues, we offer summer camps, specialized clinics, individualized training, and many off the court Educational and Life Skills Programs.

We are committed to the highest sense of integrity encompassing every aspect of our behavior as members of NBN.  We strive for high moral character, honor, respect, and honesty in all of our actions.
