About Us

Next Level Athletes Born2Ball (NLA B2B) is a Nonprofit organization that is certified, licensed and insured as a professional sports training organization.  We focus on training collegiate, amateur and youth athletes.  Trainings are orchestrated to fit the need of the athlete.  Athletes are coached trained and evaluated by professional basketball coaches. 

NLA B2B Basketball Academy is a trusted partner with San Jose Parks and Recreation, Hillbrook School in Los Gatos and is affiliated with Phenom America Basketball 5 Star National Camp, the Jr. National Basketball Association (Jr. NBA), The Jr. Women's national Basketball Association (Jr. WNBA), the Amateur Athletic Union (AAU), National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) and USA Basketball Gold Certified

We are the premier innovator in youth basketball skill development and training.  NLA B2B's unique and distinctive drills, techniques and tools advance the students, knowledge, understanding, skills and abilities at an amazing rate.  

The only program in the area with a mobile rebounding gun.   We use our rebounding machine at almost all our practices and trainings both indoor and outdoor.  Our rebounding, shooting machine helps to develop proper shooting trajectory as coach Mack develops the student's proper shooting form. 

Coach Mack is an expert ball handler and instructor of ball handling.  He uses techniques that vary from using tennis balls, smaller balls, two or three regular balls and medicine balls all in combination with proper footwork and visionary clues to properly enhance the students ball handling skills and sight simultaneously.  

We incorporate a specialized program and rating system that gauges each student's skill level.  Like a Martial Arts program without the belts, NLA B2B is a commitment to your child's development.

Joining our Program is an investment in your child future and success. In my opinion the most important thing to invest in, is your children.  They acquire so many valuable life skills and learn so many valuable lessons from basketball.  These positive team building experiences will impact their life for the rest of their life.  

What we offer your child is unmatched anywhere, and the proof is in the results.  We have literally seen these children grow, progress and pass students who were much further ahead when we began.  

Our students that are headed into high school will benefit greatly with 4 more years of our program and will collectively dominate at their high school because of it.  

There is a plan in place for the future of your children within basketball and mainly NLA B2B if you invest in it.  I can lead and show you the way because I've been through it.
