Inside look in CNAR's campus in Mexico City, the future home of NBA Academy Latin America!

NBA: The National Basketball Association (NBA), CONADE (Mexico’s National Commission for Physical Culture and Sport) and the Mexican Basketball Federation (Asociacion Deportiva Mexicana de Baloncesto, A.C) today announced their plan to launch The NBA Academy Latin America, an elite basketball training center in Mexico City for the top male and female prospects from throughout the Caribbean, Mexico, Central America and South America. The NBA Academy Latin America, the NBA’s seventh elite training center globally, is scheduled to open this winter.

First Post: Three and a half years ago in Wuhan, China, Scott Flemming was on the sidelines for one of the greatest moments in Indian basketball history.
The American basketball coach already spent over two decades in college basketball and the NBA’s Development League back home, but when he accepted the role of India’s senior men’s basketball coach in 2012, he was handed a challenge unlike anything he had ever experienced before.

What is The NBA Academy?

The NBA Academies are the NBA’s international elite development initiative that consists of a network of elite basketball training centers around the world to develop top international male and female prospects. NBA Academies include educational development for the prospects and mark the NBA’s signature elite player development initiative. The NBA Academies expose elite prospects to NBA-level coaching, facilities and competition and provide a global framework for elite prospects to maximize their success.

Each elite training center is staffed with NBA-trained coaches to foster the development of prospects on and off the court, both during and after their basketball careers. The NBA Academy coaches will implement a curriculum developed by leading player development coaches to teach the fundamentals of the game in order to improve individually and as a teammate. Each Academy will also be staffed by an experienced strength and conditioning coach to help NBA Academy athletes improve their athleticism and to stay healthy.

Depending on the location, student-athletes will either attend a local public school or receive a scholarship to a local private school. Student-athletes will receive academic support as needed. In addition to the academics, NBA Academy student-athletes will be exposed to life skills training to help with goal setting, relationship management, finances and other off-court related concepts.

What is an NBA Basketball School?

NBA Basketball Schools are a network of basketball development programs around the world open to both male and female players ages 6-18. The NBA Basketball School is unique in its approach based on “the NBA way” of developing players in a structured program and environment focused on skill development and promoting positive values such as integrity, teamwork, respect and determination.
