The ABA also offers players the opportunity to join a travel team and develop an even broader set of techniques while engaging in meaningful competition. Teams are managed by professional ABA instructors who are committed to training and creating well-rounded athletes.
Teams practice twice a week out of Eastmonte Park and compete in monthly tournaments in the Central Florida area. The ABA travel team program is structured for 10U to 14U divisions and focuses on teaching players the skills needed for success at the high school level.
In addition, the program emphasizes the importance of fundamentals and how to play the game with a positive mindset and tremendous effort on a daily basis. Players offered roster spots must commit to a full season and pay the appropriate team fees, which vary by division.
