More About LOBA…

Lute Olson, former Wildcat Men’s Basketball Coach and Basketball Hall of Fame inductee, is intimately involved with this year-round academy. At the academy, coaches will teach basketball skills and team concepts to aspiring basketball players of all skill levels, starting at the age of six (6).

The Lute Olson Basketball Academy – “LOBA” for short – runs four-five sessions throughout the year, each session typically lasting six weeks. Training sessions for beginner and intermediate groups are 90 minutes twice a week (one weekday evening and one weekend day); the advanced group will meet for two hours one weekend afternoon. LOBA is designed to supplement the coaching received through  school, league or club teams. Custom team training is also available.

The typical LOBA annual calendar is: Fall Session:  September-October;  Winter Session: November-December; Spring Sessions: March-May; Summer Session: July-August.

LOBA has always worked keep fees extremely low – and provide financial assistance to a limited number of financially qualified participants – so that this unique program can reach as many kids as possible.
