ABOVE THE RIM GYM - Proudly Coaching Middle Tennessee Since 2006

HOME OF THE SEAAU 16U BOYS BASKETBALL STATE CHAMPIONS AND RUNNER UP IN THE AAU NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP 2016 
Above the Rim Gym is a Murfreesboro-based basketball academy focused
on providing boys ages 7-17 the opportunity to play the game of basketball throughout Murfreesboro and Middle Tennessee.
 
We operate out of our sponsor gym at a local high school as well as
several community gyms and elementary schools that support all
participants regardless of school attended. Sportsmanship is a cornerstone
of our mission in that your child will be expected to not only be
committed to the game, but committed to the team and its success. Your
child will be expected to be just as good a follower as he/she may be a
leader We welcome the opportunity to participate in the life of your child. 
 
Mission Statement
 
Our mission is to utilize sports as the platform to communicate skills to student athletes ranging from ages 7-17 years. These skills will transcend
the world of sports to better prepare each child to deal with the world
outside of the gym. Through teaching the fundamentals and advanced
skills of basketball, life disciplines will be introduced.
 
We will nurture the basic tenets of responsibility, teamwork, goal-setting, self-discipline, anger management, sportsmanship, competing fairly, planning, setting priorities, first impressions, respect, and "acting the part". The end result will be a child that is mentally stronger, fundamentally
more sound, team-focused, goal-orientated and competitively grounded.
 
We will partner with local organizations from the Middle Tennessee area
that have a vested interest in the development of each child. Please see our sponsors for those businesses that have an invested interest in our athletes.
 
We are a non-profit 501(c) 3 organization. To donate or provide a sponsorship to a team or specific athlete, call or email (see below).
Thanks for your support.
