Blue Wave Basketball was founded in the Spring of 2011 by Steve Haines, Shawn Legassey and Dajuan Eubanks; three fathers that have a goal to teach 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.
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.
After living for several years in the Milwaukee area, Dajuan and his family relocated seven years ago to his wife’s native state – Maine. Here he works for the NBA Development League and most recently could be found on the sidelines coaching his daughters. Through his journey thus far, Dajuan has inspired countless young athletes to not only be students of the game but also to succeed in life through education, independent thinking, and determination.
Steve also brings years of management and organizational skills to Blue Wave and is in charge of all web site administration, player communications as well as social media.
