ADAPT Basketball League (ABL)
“Not Your Typical Recreation Youth League!”
Young athletes are coached by in-house staff who have trained high school, collegiate, and professional basketball players. League participants will also being counseled by Coach Julian Wright, a 14-year professional basketball player and founder of ADAPT Sports & Fitness (ADAPT Basketball) in the form of film analyses and live video conference calls for further enrichment (games will be recorded in-house and at remote locations for in-house review).
What separates us is that we run our league games similar to the structure of collegiate and pro-level practices/scrimmages. Usually, the coaches handle the officiating and take timeouts as needed (without limitations of uses per half or the length of the timeout). This means that we can develop players at will, as teaching points can be heard on an individual basis as well as targeting one's team or both participating teams. Furthermore and periodically, we provide team film analyses of games either in-person before practice or via file-sharing to families for their review. Coach Julian Wright will spearhead the film analysis operation while he is currently playing overseas in Taiwan!
Quality-Over-Quantity continues to be at the heart of our business model as we seek to develop players on and off the court.
Meaning, we are not trying to fight against the behemoth AAU/travel ball circuit... let them play on...
LET US ADAPT!

TEAM REGISTRATION PAYMENT POLICY
A team can range from friends or people in the same neighborhood to any team that wants to make sure teammates can develop together.
Team rates provide slight to moderate discounts depending on how many players within a booking party register; we distinguish ourselves as a company that focuses its efforts on DEVELOPING PLAYERS within a familiarized league structure (keeping time and score only). Our staff takes time to prepare players for skill work, running certain offensive sets and defensive schemes, and film analysis of each game to deliver via file sharing, which will be available to households for their review. Feel free to send analyses to coaches and whomever, but these are NOT highlight tapes by any means.
Aside from the slight discount, listed in bullet points below are benefits of signing up as a team
•Carpooling made easier
•Coaches want their players to work on chemistry while still developing
•Staying active during the winter months for kids in multiple sports
For teams that are registering 5 or 6 players for the 8 - 9 year-olds or 8 to 10 players for older divisions, please proceed to checkout with the listed team rate.
If you are only registering 4 players (minimum to receive a discount) for the 8 - 9 year-olds or 5 to 7 players for players within older divisions, please click HERE to purchase the appropriate package. Please note that we may assign additional players to your team and yet, the booking party will be assured that their registrants are grouped together.
Lastly, we do not handle split payments at the point of sale. Sales are final and we encourage each booking party to handle the split internally as there are many EFT (electric funds transfer) platforms such as Zelle, CashApp and Venmo, which may allow the payer to be paid prior to or reimbursed after signing up their team.
