The National Basketball Association announced the setting up of its first basketball school, a network of tuition-based basketball development programmes, in Mumbai.

The school, as part of a multi-year agreement announced today with India On Track (IOT), is open to male and female players between ages 6-18.

The new initiative adds an additional layer to the NBA’s existing basketball development efforts, including the Jr. NBA, Basketball without Borders (BWB) and NBA Academies.

Additional schools will be launched by NBA in India and around the world in the coming months, it added.

The school’s curriculum has been developed by the NBA’s Elite Basketball Development team in consultation with current and former NBA coaches, former NBA players, and player development experts.
