RADD basketball is proud to announce we are offering a (Fifth Year) Post Graduate Men’s Basketball Program that provides student-athletes with an additional “gap” year to boost their recruiting opportunities by competing against other top Prep, NJCAA, NAIA, and NCAA JV opponents without affecting their eligibility to play college basketball.  As the landscape of basketball recruiting continues to be affected due to the Covid-19 pandemic, this season’s prep players stand to benefit more than any other year in prep history. Without the opportunity to play AAU basketball, attend exposure events, and/or be seen by college coaches, an additional year of development and playing against top competition in the country can only benefit a player looking to achieve his personal athletic goals. The post-grad program runs for 8 months, with a full 35-45 game schedule, and will play in the Florida Sun basketball conference, along with several showcases and tournaments.

Accepting classes 2018 to 2021
