Youth Basketball, Done Right!

Welcome to Yellow Brick Basketball

My name is Ryan Krueger

I coached basketball full time at every level for 19 years. Ive been an NBA assistant, an NBA G League head coach, a D1 coach at the high, mid & low levels and a HS coach.

The logos below are great and all, but that's not why you want your child in Yellow Brick Basketball. Taking the right approach, playing the long game by building skills and building confidence are our top priorities every session.

"Kroogs" on his soapbox...

Coaching at every level of the game in my career, I often believed that coaches were prioritizing the wrong things. Never have I believed this more than when I watch the game taught to our youngest players. There's a place for competition and winning and scholarships. But it's NOT in elementary school. That's why we prioritize fun, skills & confidence. A kid having fun and improving their skills is a confident kid excited to continue on in the sport. The goal of our 'youth clinics' is to build interest, skills and confidence in the game, not NBA/WNBA lottery picks.

That comes later...
