Our Mission

The Aztec Basketball Academy's mission is to help provide today's youth with the discipline, hard work and team work skills that they will use on and off the court. We focus on high achievement in the classroom as well as on the court. Our goal is to not only win games, but to give our athletes the best opportunity to be seen by College scouts and have the chance to further their education through basketball if they choose.We have successfully created a reputation in which our athletes' character stands out in a very positive light. They are known to be hardworking kids who are respectful and have a passion for the game and we expect nothing less. We firmly believe this mind set will take them far beyond their years as an athlete, helping them succeed in life. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Thank you and be blessed,
Coach Myron Epps
