HIGH DESERT PHENOMS BASKETBALL ACADEMY
Empowering Young Athletes to Take It to the Next Level
It is the mission of the High Desert Phenoms Basketball Academy to educate and empower today’s youth with confidence, commitment and integrity, so they can live a productive and successful tomorrow. Our goal is to teach young athletes respect for themselves, their peers and their community by instilling a code of ethics built on honesty, responsibility and team work.
Together, our players, families and volunteers work with unyielding spirit to cultivate a safe and disciplined environment so every child can reach their full potential, develop their talents and increase their skills in the game of basketball and more importantly… life.
Who We Are
The HDPA began 4 years ago with a dedicated group of men passionate about two things… raising healthy, successful children and playing the game of Basketball!
Today, our non-profit organization is over 140 families strong and participates in the AAU Basketball Program, welcoming over 1000 players, friends and onlookers in the HDPA 2012 Tournament. The High Desert Phenoms Academy family, including parents, coaches and sponsors is steadfast in our commitment to educate and encourage today’s adolescents who are destined to become tomorrow’s role models.
Our culturally diverse roster includes kids from all areas of the High Desert California. The players are given the opportunity to travel and participate in highly competitive tournaments, as well as attend skill camps and customized practice sessions to strengthen their game. To balance their commitment to basketball, we’ve developed tutorial programs to improve academic skills and we volunteer time in various community “give back” programs to inspire other youths, as well as have the teams participate in all High Desert Phenoms Academy fundraising events.
