About BSNY Titans
BSNY Titans are led by Coach Dermon Player who ran the most successful program in the history of AAU basketball back in the mid-nineties when he coached 3 NBA players on the same team and won multiple national championships with them. Coach Player has assembled a team of coaches made up of Basketball Stars contributors that all share the same passion for working with kids and the game of basketball as he does.
It is the philosophy of the BSNY Titans that children should learn to play the game and fall in love with it with their friends. Generally in 3rd – 5th grade we select teams based on requests with friends and convenience. As the boys enter middle school we look to shift into more competitive environment for all teams while remaining inclusive for all participants up until 8th grade. From 8th – 12th grade we have select teams that make cuts and play outside of the high school basketball season. These teams stay together until ultimately in 11th grade they are filled with players with the intention of playing college. We also limit grades 9th – 12th to have one team per grade.
