RAB Academy

Rise Above Basketball Academy "RAB Academy" was created to trigger the minds of youth basketball players eager to learn the game from its fundamental core. 

Further beyond skill development, (ball handling, form shooting, passing) our students will also learn proper terminology, actions off the ball,  court spacing, etc.

Our first session in the Fall 2018 was a huge success! We have already seen vast improvements from all members who attended.  

RAB Academy will once again by led by former WPI Assistant Head Coach Ryan Sheehan & former Framingham State University/Salem State University Assistant Head Coach Brendan Carter .

"Ryan has really enjoyed the RAB Academy.  Thank you very much for your enthusiasm and commitment to coaching" - Kathy Mutryn

"Will and Luke Wallace would be devastated if they could not attend the last session of RAB Fall Basketball! We will be there!  Even though they go right from hockey next door to basketball they never complained once. They jump out of car and run in since they don't want to be late. I really appreciate you coaching the boys!  I can really see an improvement" - Mike Wallace

"It’s a pleasure and thank you for coaching Dhruv. He definitely improved his skills and this is one of his most fav sport" - Sita Thottempudi

"Brendan had an awesome experience and Coach Sheehan was great with the kids. He’s planning on coming back in the spring to continue honing his skills" - Betsy Crouch

"Your skills sessions were extroardinarily helpful for my son's ball handling heading into the travel season. I saw a huge difference in his ability to play PG and keep head up. Very much appreciated...made a huge difference" - Jonathan Cignetti
