Our Beliefs

We believe kids don’t spend near enough time on developing their basketball skills. Therefore, our ONLY goal is to see each academy member reach their highest potential as a basketball player.

In conjunction with Coach Stutz’s experience in developing players, Stutz Basketball takes an “MRI like” approach to breaking down each player’s tendencies so that they can be nurtured or rebuilt in the most efficient manner.

We understand that kids need to be on teams, and we respect that, but we have absolutely no desire to start an organization that has teams. In fact, we give discounts to teams that bring in multiple players and we also offer family discounts. Contact Us for more information.
