Our organization started three years ago with hopes of providing a space to have a basketball facility for the Triad Hornets AAU Team. Owner, Jason Keith had a vision to own his own basketball facility that would not only be a safe haven for our AAU teams, but also serve as a facility for our youth and community to come and learn the game of basketball. After renting gym space for years he found a facility and purchased it. Our facility prides itself on changing kids’ lives from all walks of life.

Part of Triad Basketball Academy’s movement is to make sure all kids have a healthy environment and an athletic outlet in our community. The area we service has rallied around our cause of saving our youth. We have seen an overwhelming response to the programs we offer. There have been a few dozen people reaching out to their personal networks, business connections, and church organizations to bring awareness to our movement.

Triad Basketball Academy of Greensboro purposes itself as a cooperative community center that aspires to provide quality basketball training and skills delivered by coaches and trainers motivated to assist each athlete, from the beginner to experienced. This also means fulfilling his/her potential while encouraging character, sportsmanship and discipline required to be productive and responsible representatives of the community at large. It is then, they are members of the Triad Basketball Academy.

We are a community focused facility with several programs such as after school, youth league basketball programs, and AAU programs. These include the Triad Hornets AAU team and our very own Development Leagues for ages (3 to 15). We strive to fill the community with positive programs that can help children be productive citizens now and in the future. We offer personal training, group training, and also have a mentorship program that we recently started. Often times parents are not able to come and check on their kids at school or a lot of single parents work a lot and don’t have the time to go eat lunch with their kids. This is one of the voids we aim to fill.

We believe it takes a village to raise a child and we want to be a part of that village. Triad Basketball Academy developed an advocate program that allows us to come into the schools and check on our players and after schoolers to make sure they are completing their homework. We even eat lunch with some of the kids. Communities become even more powerful when it includes everyone. When all members of the community pull together for a united cause, the power becomes unlimited. The change or transformation that occurs from the entire community is something greater than what a small group of the community or an individual can achieve. Triad Basketball Academy is striving for greatness in all we do. Our staff includes Jason Keith, owner of Triad Basketball Academy, Jodie Murphy, Director of Triad Basketball Academy, and Coach Jay and Coach Jay.
