WHO WE ARE

AAU Basketball logo 5

Rise as One Basketball Club is one of the most prominent AAU clubs in Northern New Jersey and is one of the fastest-growing programs in the Northeast, specializing in developing boys and girls from ages 8-19. Our players have won regional, state, and national titles against some of the best teams in the country. We run a system much like a division I Collegiate program. 

Players are developed over the course of years and years, not months. We advise parents to trust the process. Check our basketball results, this is the biggest proof that our system works! An area historically NOT known for producing college players, we have produced 15 players that are currently competing at Division I, II & III levels. Whether you want to get into college or just be the best that you can be, we provide a place where you can learn the proper fundamentals to become a better basketball player.

Rise as One Basketball has an elite team of coaching staff. Our coaches have experience playing on the collegiate and/or professional level, which makes them competent and knowledgeable about how to play the game.Our coaches are passionate about basketball and their enthusiasm creates a great team environment for our players. Not only do our coaches improve our players’ skills, they also increase their basketball IQ. Learning the game of basketball from the neck up is extremely important, but can be underrated.

TEAM CULTURE

TEAM CULTURE

Rise as One creates a team culture that is unlike any other AAU club. When you are a part of RA1, you are a part of a family. RA1 fosters a positive environment of teamwork and sportsmanship in every team in our organization. Each player is treated with respect, no matter how long they have been with us.We have built our whole organization on the value and importance of the team. No one is bigger than the team. Our teams have an advantage in competition because they are stronger and play as cohesive units. This is because of the strong foundation we have built with players, parents and coaches. The team mindset ultimately gives each player the opportunity to play and gain exposure.

DEVELOPMENT SYSTEM

DEVELOPMENT SYSTEM

Practice is truly what makes players great. Unlike most AAU clubs, we offer players two and a half hours of practice two to three times a week. Our practices give players the opportunity to work on their skills and add elements to their game. They allow players to learn aspects of the game in a way they cannot do on their own. Our coaches recognize the importance of practice and they utilize the time to make sure all players improve. Because our core program curriculum is taught at each level and age, players have one uniform approach to the game. This allows them to reach their maximum potential as they build on their development each year they play with Rise as One.

PRACTICE TO PREPARE

PRACTICE TO PREPARE

The practice environment at Rise as One is different from other AAU clubs. To ensure that players develop the proper skills and habits, we emphasize skill development through games, drills, and individual work. We know that the most effective way to improve your skills is through reps. At Rise as One Basketball, players receive over 28 hours of individualized training per month. That’s more than most college basketball players receive at their schools! After recognizing the shortcomings of most AAU programs, we decided to create an organization that would allow our players to maximize their court time.

PARENT SUPPORT

PARENT SUPPORT

We are not your typical basketball organization. We don’t just build teams, we create a culture that creates success on and off the court through hard work, attitude, perseverance, and teamwork. We have amazing, committed parents that are immensely proud of their player’s contributions to the Rise as One program. This mindset fostered by a strong group of players, coaches, and parents has led Rise as One to be one of the best programs in New Jersey.

COLLEGE RECRUITMENT

COLLEGE RECRUITMENT

Rise as One provides many opportunities for exposure to college recruitment that most AAU clubs cannot offer. As the only AAU club in Northern New Jersey that goes to all the College Exposure Tournaments, our players get a chance to play in front of college coaches multiple times throughout the year. Rise as One aids in this process by providing a recruiting guide. This guide offers a step-by-step outline of the recruiting process and what to do. It also explains the rules of the NCAA for Division I, II, and III. This is done in hopes of making this process easier for players and parents as they navigate through the NCAA basketball guidelines.
