About Us

Michigan Sports Academies was initially founded in July of 2007. Our simple mission was to provide fundamental skill development in youth sports.

The goal of training athletes for premier, elite and competitive level events including collegiate exposure tournaments, has driven MSA to begin developing a strong National Basketball program in West Michigan. We believe that playing basketball is an excellent avenue to teach moral principles and characteristics such as dedication, teamwork, discipline, self-confidence, and sportsmanship.

Key components to MBA are:

  • At MBA children are given opportunities to maximize their talent, grow within the sport of basketball, and develop leadership qualities for success both on and off the court.
  • MBA offers a consistent curriculum to teach offensive and defensive plays
  • Accepts all genders and ages
  • MBA Local 616 players participate in the top leagues in the metro Grand Rapids area
  • MBA Regional Blue players participate in the top leagues and tournaments in the state of Michigan
  • ​MBA National Black players participate in the top National leagues and National tournaments across the United States

While our mission continues to evolve, we still hold true to our fundamental approach to development and competition by training the individual first. Are you ready to join our team?

Key Benefits to MBA!

While focusing on MVA the last three years we have firmly developed the groundwork for offering a product with sustainability, excellent organization and ethical practices in the marketplace.  This baseline foundation lends itself to starting a step ahead of the competition.

We will work to change the basketball landscape in Michigan so that all of our athletes will have the opportunity to play in events that offer not only insurance for injured players but standards of conduct.

Why Play?

Basketball is a unique sport that demands teamwork, commitment and perseverance on and off the court. Michigan Basketball Academy was born out of a desire to get today's youth moving and develop these life skills. MBA promotes this within a varying degree of financial and time commitment options.
