The Boomerang Basketball Academy has great projects, one of which is to take a Dominican team to play in the Amateur Athletic Association (AAU), the Amateur Athletic Association.

The team will compete in Sub 17th Division and is therefore in an “intensive training phase”, with 30 youngsters, spending three to four hours training.
“We want to win the championship,” Rudy said.
“It will give us a bad reputation, a brand, and scholarships,” he says. This is why the need for a visa will pave the way for a group of young people, not only with scholarships in the United States, but also in the Dominican Republic.
This tournament will take place at Spooky Nook Sports, recognized as the largest indoor sports arena complex in the world.

“We want great athletes, but also professionals,” because “it is not only the play factor Basketball“.
