STEAM and REP AAU Basketball
What is STEAM? How do STEAM and basketball work together? Will this program make my student-athletes more prepared for the future?
STEAM is an approach to learning that involves the use of Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics. These subjects are used as entry points to guide a student’s interest, conversations and critical thinking.
We use STEAM with Basketball activities to engage our athletes interest in learning.
Is a REP Basketball team that marries athletics with academics right for your budding basketball prodigy? Simply put yes!
Every elite athlete needs to be academically qualified to accept an athletic scholarship. Often caregivers to exceptional talents spend a great deal focusing on helping develop and nurture their athletic abilities and forget about their need to also develop academically.
Our REP AAU Basketball team differs from most in this area. We place equal emphasis on our player’s athletic and academic development. Their level of achievement is measured based on both areas of development.
