Bay Area Argonauts is a youth basketball program where boys and girls 6th through 10th grade can take their skills to the next level. We are a competitive basketball program based in Pleasanton, California.
* Can you run down the court at top speed and still make the lay-up?
* Can you make your free throws in the 4th quarter?
* Can you see the open man when you are being double-teamed?
* Can you bring the ball up during a full-court press?
We specialize in player development. We work on agility, speed, footwork, dribbling, court IQ and conditioning. These fundamentals are key to increasing your success on the court.
