Play Tough, Live Strong
Summer is Heating UP!!!
The Nampa Zone is getting into the full swing of Summer.. We have a 5th grade and an 8th grade team participating in the AAU Summer Season.
We are looking forward to a successful season building upon what we've done this past Spring, Winter and Fall.
We are also hoping to hit the ground hard in an effort to do some Club Fundraising in the coming months. We are poised to keep growing and expanding towards our goals.
The Nampa Zone was created in 2011 in an effort to give our existing Nampa Rec League team some more competitive play. Our initial team was made up of eight fifth graders and we participated in three Crash the Boards tournaments. Coming straight from Rec Center rules to high school rules was an awakening for our team. They grew by leaps and bounds over the course of the spring and ended things by winning the final tournament we participated in.
2012 continues to be one step after another for the Nampa Zone. We started out participating in the Treasure Valley Select Elite league in Caldwell. In March we took a team over to Shelly, ID as we were invited to the 15th annual March Madness tournament. We held our 1st Skills Camp, 3 days focused on Ball-Handling, Defense, Rebounding & Shooting last May. Chalked full of fun games and fundamental learning. We spent the Summer participating in the AAU Summer league through the YMCA, where we made it all the way to the Championship game after going 5 - 1 in the regular season.
2011 was the beginning, 2012 is the warm up, so we can't wait to see where we go in 2013!
The Vision of the Nampa Zone is to become a premier youth Basketball club for boys and girls. The Goal of the Nampa Zone is to equip our players with the knowledge and understanding of the game of Basketball to succeed at the next level. Through Teamwork, Leadership and Dedication we'll help our players and coaches excel in sports as well as in life.
We envision the Nampa Zone becoming to Nampa youth Basketball what Boise Slam, Idaho Elite and Hoop Dreams have become to Ada County youth Basketball. The only place to go is UP!!!
