ABOUT

ABOUT

Blue Wave Basketball was founded in the Spring of 2011 with the goal of teaching kids in the Greater Portland area the proper way to learn the fundamentals of the game of basketball.

Blue Wave Basketball year round programs focus on strengthening fundamentals, understanding the game, and instilling confidence in young athletes. In addition, Blue Wave Basketball teaches kids more than “how” to do a skill, but “why” they are doing a particular skill with a focus on the mastering of proper practice habits.

Our Philosophy…

Kids will reach their playing potential when their desire for success is coupled with sound instruction of basic fundamentals in a positive learning environment.

 

With a “Fundamentals First” approach and philosophy of teaching the game of basketball, Blue Wave Basketball has become the fastest growing youth basketball program in the Greater Portland Area.
