Teaching the Greater Portland area the proper way to learn the fundamentals of the game of basketball.
A NOTE FROM OUR DIRECTOR
Blue Wave Basketball was founded in 2011 by Shawn Legassey, Steve Haines & Dajuan Eubanks, three dads’ looking for a safe, family friendly and competitive place for their daughters to learn the game of basketball.
Starting at the YMCA with a small Skills & Drills class we quickly learned that the families of Southern Maine were looking for the same things. We outgrew the YMCA and landed at Guild Hall in Portland where we offered year-round travel basketball as well as summer and winter leagues. Our vison proved correct as we grew to 30+ teams and having the opportunity we moved to our current home, the Maine Basketball Academy (the former Maine Girls Academy).
We are very pleased to announce the Blue Wave Basketball has signed a new 5-year lease at the Maine Basketball Academy, and this will be our home for the next 5 years!
In partnership with Kevin Bunker of DC Management we are excited to be a part of the transformation of the former Maine Girls Academy into the Stevens Square Community Center. Stevens Square Community Center will be a hub of activity in the heart of Portland and we are very excited to be a part of it!
Blue Wave Basketball, back to our roots- “Fundamentals First”. Shawn, Dajuan and Steve are very excited to continue this journey with our basketball families.
Stay tuned for more information as we head into fall!
Stay safe & hope to see you all on the court soon.
