OUR STORY
 

M.A.D.E. Basketball was founded in 2011 with the goal to bridge the gap between  AAU and recreational basketball. In our first season, we had 2 teams, 3 coaches and have grown to 17 teams.  We have been fortunate to have won many championships, traveled and developed solid student athletes. The biggest accomplishment is the mental, physical and social growth we have seen in players over the past 12 years.  Basketball is a medium for life!!
