NBA's second Basketball School in India launched in New Delhi

What better place to get a basketball education than at school... with the NBA?

After the success of their first-ever Basketball School in Mumbai earlier this year, the NBA has followed up this week with the launch of its first Basketball School in New Delhi. NBA India announced that the school will be part of a network of tuition-based basketball development programs around the world open to international male and female players ages 6-18. The NBA School in New Delhi will be at the city's Apeejay School in Seikh Sarai.

The first NBA Basketball School globally was launched in Mumbai in April, as part of a multiyear agreement with India On Track (IOT), one of India’s leading sports management, marketing and development companies. Additional NBA Basketball Schools will be launched in India and around the world in the coming months.

The new initiative adds an additional layer to the NBA’s existing basketball development efforts, including the Jr. NBA, Basketball without Borders (BWB) and NBA Academies.

The Jr. NBA, the league’s global youth basketball participation program for boys and girls, will help identify young players who have the talent to attend NBA Basketball Schools. From there, the top players at each NBA Basketball School will have the opportunity to be selected to attend NBA Academies, the league’s network of elite basketball training centers around the world to develop top international male and female prospects. Registration to attend the NBA Basketball School is now open at indiaontrack.nba.com.

The NBA's first Academy in India also opened earlier this year, in Greater Noida.

Each NBA Basketball School will feature year-long, tuition-based programmes open to international male and female players ages 6-18. The NBA Basketball School curriculum, which is designed to help players, parents, coaches and organizations better understand the process of improvement, has been developed by the NBA’s Elite Basketball Development team in consultation with current and former NBA coaches, former NBA players, and player development experts. The comprehensive curriculum covers oncourt training, strength and conditioning, and basketball education for young players ages 6-18 and will be implemented by local coaches working directly with the NBA’s International Basketball Operations staff around the world.
