FAQ's

What is your schedule?

During the school year we offer 5-week instructional sessions (for basketball skills, volleyball skills or toddler activities) in a variety of levels. These sessions consist of small group instruction with children of similar ability. Our upcoming schedules are posted here. If you are new to the academy please read about our Basketball skill levels or our Volleyball skill levels to determine the starting level of your child. If you have any questions please call us at (701) 356-5666 or use our general inquiry form.

Our summer programs consist of the 2-day clinics, evening 3-on-3 leagues and Friday morning skill classes.

We offer private lessons, team trainings and birthday parties year round, based on gym availability.

How do I get my child signed up for the academy?

Go to the Basketball Skills or Volleyball Skills page to determine the appropriate level for your child. Then view our schedule to register for an upcoming class.

If you are not sure, contact us, and we'll help you decide the appropriate level for your child.

Who will be instructing my children during the classes?

Our skills classes, team trainings and private lessons are taught by Director Josh Johnson and our other experienced instructors. The academy also has an additional staff of past and current collegiate players to help with the instruction during the summer months. The academy takes pride in our instructors and will continue to ensure that those teaching at the Fargo Basketball Academy are not only very good teachers of the game, but are also men and women of great character who relate well with our youth.

If my child misses a class can they make it up?

If your child misses a scheduled class due to an illness or scheduling conflict, they may make it up in one of the other similar level classes within the same 5-week session.

How do I sign my child up for private lessons with one of the FBA instructors?

To request a private lesson, use our online form. Most of the private lessons are done by Rory White, Matt Peterson and other instructional staff. Private lessons can either be scheduled as a one-time event or a regular weekly occruence.

What is your bad weather policy?

If we choose to close the Academy because of inclement weather, we will post it on the front page of our website, post it to our social media platforms and leave a message on our answering service as soon as we make that decision. If you feel uncomfortable driving to the academy, please do not take any chances. You will be allowed to make up for any missed classes at a later date. Often times the travel conditions are good in town, but awful outside the city limits. Because of this we will choose to hold classes for whoever can safely get there.

Do you ever rent your gym?

Due to the fact that we hold classes Mondays through Saturdays and teach lessons at the FBA on Sundays, there is limited time available for teams to rent our facility. If you are interested please contact us to see what time might be available. The cost to rent the gym is $75/hour.
