Welcome to Rhode Island Magic

The Rhode Island Magic began in the fall of 2015 and is now the largest and longest-running AAU boys program in Rhode Island. The reason for our success and growth is simple. As a program, we know that coaching is one of, if not, the most important factors that parents consider when choosing an AAU program. We have a plethora of talented, college-educated coaches on our staff with many years of playing and coaching experience at the middle, high school, and collegiate levels. Our talented coaches are always discussing basketball, attending clinics, and continually developing as coaches. The majority coach at the interscholastic level and are USA Basketball Gold Coach Certified as well. The coaches work extremely hard to make sure your child has a rewarding, enjoyable, and educational experience. Our goals as a coaching staff are to create a fun atmosphere in which teammates build camaraderie and develop their basketball skills in a challenging and competitive environment.

At our weekly practices, the first half of the practice focuses solely on skill development. Teams practice once a week for approximately two hours. The first half of the practice focuses on individual skill development. We teach and reinforce the main basketball concepts, utilizing drills that build on each other throughout the season. The second half of practice focuses on the team concepts of basketball, preparing players and teams for their games. Teams will have an opportunity for a second practice as well.

In addition to an unrivaled coaching staff, we also take pride in our organization and communication, two attributes parents have stated are also extremely important to them. We recommend reviewing our parent testimonials, for both the quantity and quality of feedback we have received over the years. As you look through our website, please be sure to check our
