  Empowering Young People to Take It to the Next Level

It is the mission of RAP Basketball to educate and empower today's youth with confidence, commitment and integrity, so they can live a productive and successful tomorrow. Our goal is to teach young athletes respect for themselves, their peers and their community by instilling a code of ethics built on honesty, responsibility and team work.

Together, our players, families and volunteers work with unyielding spirit to cultivate a safe and disciplined environment so every child can reach their full potential, develop their talents and increase their skills in the game of basketball and more importantly... life.

Who We Are

RAP Basketball began 1999 with a dedicated group passionate about three things... educating healthy, successful children and playing the game of Basketball!

Today, our non-profit organization has over 10,000 players, parents and coaches invoiled in its programs.

Our culturally diverse programs includes volunteers from all areas of Texas. The players are given the opportunity to travel. To balance their commitment to basketball, we've developed tutorial programs to improve academic skills and we volunteer time in various community "grass roots" programs to inspire other youths, as well.

RAP Basketball by helping to provide uniforms, entry fees, lodging etc.. to grass roots programs in their start up years.
