NYC Trojans are youth basketball organization based in Lower Manhattan specializing in Travel / AAU Basketball, League Play, Private Training and Birthday parties operating under the Basketball Stars of NY (BSNY) umbrella.
It is our philosophy as an organization to make every decision in the best interest of the child. Our coaches and directors understand this unequivocally. Every member of our staff shows a tremendous for the children and basketball.
NYC Trojans teams begin in 3rd grade and eventually will go up to 12th graders as our players enter our high school. As we enter our 3rd season, we want to make sure kids have the opportunity at an early age to play with friends and get a taste of competition at the same time while falling in love with the game that our entire staff has dedicated their lives to playing and teaching. By 6th grade we try and separate the boys by skill as much as possible and offer the most competitive of teams so the boys have chance to develop as players and develop an appreciation for the hard work they are putting in. We continue through 8th grade with the same philosophy and don’t make any cuts in our programs.
Things change by 9th grade as we make cuts for teams and train outside of the high school season with them. Many of the boys have aspirations of playing in college and we have assisted in their recruitment and creating opportunities for coaches to see their abilities along with actively pursue college options for all players wearing Trojans jerseys. Not every high school player will play college basketball, however we want to help them have the most successful high school careers they can as well and enjoy the competition provided as well. Many of our high school teams form friendships among competitors that should last a lifetime.
