Can a ball change the world? Yes!


The Renaissance aims to equip inner city athletes with the tools necessary to maximize their life potential on and off the basketball court.

To do this, we strive to develop exceptional student athletes who:

  • Understand and embrace the fundamental principles of basketball.
  • Excel in academic challenges.
  • Exhibit positive personal conduct.
  • Develop good sportsmanship.


The Renaissance seeks to achieve our mission in an environment that strongly encourages personal development through rigorous academic initiatives, rewarded by educational incentives. Our aim is to reinforce the values of hard work, dedication, and excellence in all areas of life through high level competition.  Our program helps to increase confidence by building strong portfolios of collective and individual achievement for all student athletes.

New Renaissance Basketball Association is designed to develop, improve, enrich and encourage each child’s way of life through a student-athletic skill program that will offer the opportunity to reach full individual potential.

At NY Renaissance we strive for excellence, not perfection. Our unwavering promise is to instill in each child a strong sense of self confidence and heightened self esteem in a structured environment.

Our program aspires to:

  • Instill the importance of hard work and effort to accomplish goals related and unrelated to basketball.
  • Develop positive social and life skills.
  • Build strong team skills and team discipline.
  • Create future leaders who engage in community initiatives and promote community Involvement.
  • Send kids to college for free through academic and or athletic scholarships.
