New York Renaissance Teams

Our teams are highly competitive teams that play in some of the best regional tournaments around, such as: MADE HoopsHoop Group, Basketball Spotlight, Elevate, Zero Gravity, MIT, and many more.  

We are mostly known for our Nike EYBL teams and rosters, but we have other teams within the high-school age group.  Regardless, all of our programs are fully sponsored and funded by the Renaissance organization, it's donors, and Nike


Grades 2nd-8th: Seven teams (one per grade level) play on elite teams that compete throughout the northeast and mid-Atlantic states with the goal of representing the program in the AAU National Championships. These teams while competing are focusing their efforts of high school preparation. A lot of these younger Renaissance players become EYBL players, and get to compete in the best high-school amateur basketball circuit in the nation.

High School athletes (ages 15-17) play for grades 10th-12th teams that competes in the Elite Nike Youth Basketball League (EYBL). Each team is one of 50+ teams made up of the best players in the country that compete to earn the recognition of college coaches from the best US schools.   They spend their time on and off the court preparing for college.

** We do not typically hold tryouts for 14U - 17U, and any immediate interest in one of those EYBL programs must be initially accompanied by in-game video of the interested participant. We receive a lot of requests and inquiries about trying out for our program, but we are unfortunately unable to accommodate everyone.

For middle-school (and the rare occasion of a high-school need), we will post any available opportunities to try out on our social media pages and news feeds on our website.  Our social media handle on Instagram and Twitter is @NYRHoops, and you will not miss the opportunity when it comes, as we will blast it out heavily for all those interested. 


ALL NY Renaissance teams are fully funded by Nike.

ALL NY Renaissance teams and players are eligible to receive free one on one tutoring through our educational program.

ALL NY Renaissance teams are a part of the Orange Patch Initiative, which builds community awareness and character.
