About New World

Founded in 2012, New World Basketball Academy is an elite youth basketball program for aspiring athletes. Ranging from an afterschool basketball program, to weekend clinics and summer camps NWBA's Mission combines fundamental skill instruction with organized AAU team competition with the goal of providing an enjoyable and educational outlet to develop youth on and off of the court.

New World Basketball Academy was created to respond to the widespread and concerns of drugs, crime, education, failure, and social decay of families and absentee parents. These conditions are affecting some of our youth in ways that may lead to future generations of less male productivity and more incarcerations and dealing a serious blow to our economy. The solution is competent parents, faith-based entities, schools, after-school programs and funding sources—all working together to strengthening families and communities. Coach Taj’s fundamental belief is that children are capable of achieving great things. There are many opportunities and each child has a specific gift or talent that can be used to help them succeed in life. He is dedicated to their success—working one day at a time and one child at a time.
