Want More Than Just Basketball?
We hold basketball tryouts at practices for in-season joins. Sign up below.
Level Up Sports Academy is an education-based youth sports development program. We use basketball as the hook to engage young athletes in our dynamic life skills curriculum. We focus on producing well-rounded athletes.
- Fundamentals. As the athletes develop, our curriculum evolves to include more advanced, complex drills and skill challenges. Coaches provide athletes with mental strategies and physical challenges that prepare them for today’s competitive environments in sports and in life.
- Philanthropy. Our goal is to create compassionate kids. Every month, athletes might volunteer at a homeless shelter, raise awareness for a cause they believe in and participate in our annual shoe drive that benefits under-resourced youth in Contra Costa County.
- Fun. We incorporate challenges that build self-confidence and develop leadership skills. Kids brainstorm a series of challenges and team building activities that push them beyond their comfort zone. For example, we may go to a public place and challenge strangers to rock-paper-scissors.
Kids love learning the value of teamwork and playing with friends. Parents love the lasting impact it has on their child.
Schedule A Tryout
Our daughter had the privilege of Bill Flitter coaching her first year of CYO Basketball. She came into the program with just one year of experience so there was the need to learn skills and technique. With Bill’s approach, coaching experience and patience he was able to capture the attention of several 8 year old girls.
