ABOUT RBA  image
"Basketball isn't just a sport. It's an art, one that must be mastered to succeed."
Stephen Curry

We are passionate basketball people who want to pass on our knowledge and love for the game of basketball.

We want to promote the game of basketball and inspire the development of well-rounded athletes, both on and off the court. Through teamwork, discipline, and respect, we strive to create a positive and inclusive environment that fosters growth, learning, and excellence. We aim to provide opportunities for players of all ages and skill levels to improve their abilities, to compete at a higher level, and to make lifelong connections with fellow athletes, coaches, referees and fans. Our ultimate goal is to instill a passion and love for basketball that extends beyond our club and enriches the lives of all our members and community.

At RBA, we want each athlete to exceed their own perceived limitations, and to push their own boundaries. We want to create limitless possibilities on the basketball court and hope this leads to limitless possibilities off the court in life.
