The CAN-DO basketball program is designed to develop a child’s athletic skills, create a sense of teamwork, and motivate athletes to work hard while having fun. We have partnered with the City of Tampa to create this year-round program for any child that has the desire to play basketball. The program is called Team Tampa Basketball. All skill levels are welcome to participate as we recognize that not every child will want to jump right into competitive basketball.
Our basketball program is designed for boys and girls ages 5 through 17. CAN-DO has created a curriculum that offers weekly training, summer camps, recreational leagues, and competitive tournaments. We even offer private training for athletes seeking more individualized instruction. All of these opportunities include basketball skill development, physical fitness, and educational mentoring.
Where and when do you play?
As a result of our partnership with the City of Tampa, we have access to seven basketball gyms located through the City of Tampa. We conduct clinics, leagues, tournaments, and camps in all locations.
Our competitive leagues offer players of any skill level the opportunity to put their basketball skills to work over the course of an 8-10 game schedule. Our leagues operate in winter (December thru February) and summer (July thru August) for boys and girls ages 5-17. The competitive leagues develop an athlete’s confidence and teach the importance of teamwork.
We are also proud to offer highly competitive travel teams that participate in AAU, USSSA, and YBOA sanctioned games. Our travel teams typically consist of players developed through the Team Tampa Basketball training programs. The travels teams compete in highly competitive tournaments and games consisting of very skilled players. There are additional costs to participate in the travel teams’ tournaments and scrimmages.
Team Tampa has also partnered with Hoop it Up to host indoor and outdoor basketball events.
All of our instructors have a basketball background be it playing experience or coaching. Our coaches are required to participate in training programs and background screening to ensure that our athletes have the best possible instructors to develop their basketball skills.
