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.

Sorry everyone there was no 1st half winner or the end of the game winner for this week Cardinals Squares. We will have practice today at 630. Varsity will go with Sol coaches and JV players will go with me if enough JV players show up today. Parents please contact me and let me know if you are coming to practice or NOT. Also please read all the Academy website info about giving advance notice if you are going to take time off of the Academy. I’m trying to be as nice as I can with everyone but I’m getting frustrated with some of our parents. I would hate to tell a parent they are dismissed from the Academy so please everyone make every effort to make practices and to PAY MONTHLY DUES ON TIME. We all need to work together so our program is successful its not just my program its all of OURS and all parents should be recruiting other good kids and parents to help your child compete against the best competition in the state of Arizona. Lets all do our part to build a strong program for all of our kids. Thanks guys see you tonight.
