Ambush Basketball Academies

Making A Difference

About Us

Ambush Basketball Academies main purpose is to allow adolescents, young men, and women of all economic backgrounds a chance to eventually play against the highest level of competition. Our goal is to help them experience different people and places and have the opportunity to learn life lessons from the beautiful game of basketball. At our core we are a youth basketball academy aimed at helping our area youth develop basketball, people and life skills. Donations through GiveStep will allow us to hand out more scholarships through our Ambush Scholarship Fund to graduating seniors, offset fees associated with providing experiences for our athletes and families, plus give us a great platform to recognize player, team, and program accomplishments in a fun/safe/trackable system!

Your Pledge Makes A Difference!

Posted 03/26/2018

Everyone always says this to our coaches or staff "I wish I could help"/"I wish I could do more for Ambush athletes"/"We would like to invest in your program" and many more great comments on getting involved and supporting our cause. With the Victory Club via GiveStep we are hoping to streamline the process and make it simple for you to help the young athletes of our program thrive! This is the simplest way to help without going door to door selling popcorn, candy, or other fundraising events out there. Click 3-4 buttons and forget about it! Ambush Basketball Academies need your help to achieve the mission of "Making A Difference" with one athlete at a time. We are NOT backed by deep pockets or huge corporations with endless amounts of money and resources. We are a small time operation, with hard working coaches that have high expecations and goals for our athletes and program. We appreciate your love for the youth of our nation, support for the program, and understanding of how much good we are trying to do! #AmbushFamily
