About Basketball Destinations
Basketball Destinations is a company founded to provide collegiate and high school men's and women's basketball teams a great opportunity to compete in different venues around the country throughout the year.

"I founded Basketball Destinations because I love and understand collegiate and high school basketball. Having coached at both levels for many years, I wanted to provide a fun and affordable experience for all levels and teams. We look to provide events for NCAA Division I, II, III, NAIA, NCCAA, NJCAA and High School men's and women's basketball teams. Our events are simply a building block in each teams season. I look forward to working with coaches and hope you all enjoy your Basketball Destinations experience!"
