AZ Run-n-gun Academy

An East Valley club basketball team offering year round training for all levels from age 6 to 16

Founded by Dave Harris, the Arizona Run-n-Gun Academy is an east valley club basketball team offering a premier basketball training program for youth ages 6 through 16. This year-round model was developed to give players as well as parents the opportunity and flexibility to concentrate on school and attend non-basketball functions throughout the year all while keeping up with and advancing their skills on the court. The end goal of the academy is to develop Arizona youth both on and off the court through discipline, trust and hard work and be instrumental in their journey of becoming an elite player.

We will practice tomorrow at 530 we will be missing the older boys they will be playing in the championship game at Pheonix Suns Arena in Phx at 8pm. I sent everyone an email about paying Dues up so I dont have to collect anymore just 1 thing not to worry about. Also let me know if you cant make it tomorrow please cause I numbers will be low and that’s fine it makes it easy on me to know so I know what to cover in practice lower numbers are always great you can get alot of work in. Thanks guys see you all tomorrow


My favorite time of the year is back. March Madness is finally here I will be handing out brackets for our 3rd Annual March Madness Bracket Challenge. Everyone can participate we will have prizes for 3rd and 2nd and 1st place finishers this year. If you never played before I will explain the rules and how you play at practice today. Brackets will be due at the start of Wed practice. If you have questions guys just ask me I will explain it to you. Thanks guys see you all tonight.


Everything is coming in I want pass anything out until all uniforms are in and we are missing a few. But let’s focus on getting better we as a program cannot compete as club program right now. We need more players and we need to get better. Lets make that commitment to getting and making every practice. Our program has a reputation of being 1 of the better programs in the East Valley we are not there and I’m kinda upset about it but we have to keep going and recruiting and getting better. Let’s all focus on that and make every effort to make every practice so we can play in some major club tournaments that’s our main focus and we arent there yet. Thanks guys just wanted to keep you up to date its been awhile and I’m still working.


We will go today at 530 for everyone please let me know if you can make it or not. Thanks to some good parents we have ordered a ladder and some cones and hurdles we will begin speed and conditioning training. As a coach I need to create the best athlete and player that I possibly can and I have notice we all need foot work asap so we will implement speed and foot training in our practices. Hope everyone had an awesome Spring Break with that being said please come prepared to work we have alot of work to do. See you all at practice today.
