The Rhode Island Magic just completed its fourth season this spring and is one of the fastest growing and respected AAU clubs in the region. The reason for the growth and success is simple. We are not like many other local AAU programs that have multiple teams using the same name, with coaches working in isolation. 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 and the majority coach at the interscholastic level 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.

We are extremely organized and have a comprehensive philosophy for the program that all coaches are aware of and adhere to at all times. We are known for our consistent play across the program and utilize the same offensive and defensive approaches, from our elementary to varsity teams. We practice two times a week to help our players develop better skills, while stressing the importance of team work and giving maximum effort in everything they do. Our players get better throughout the season, and our teams grow together through chemistry built in practice and during our participation against top-level competition.  

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, which we take great pride in both the quantity and quality of feedback we have received. As you look through our website, please be sure to check our FAQ, which answer many questions parents have regarding AAU and the RI Magic. We know there are many choices for AAU basketball in Rhode Island and Massachusetts and appreciate you taking time to consider the RI Magic.

Rhode Island Magic has programs for boys’ grades 3 through 12 and tryouts are open to all. You can register for tryouts at Rhode Island Magic is an active member of the Amateur Athletic Union (AAU). All participants in the program must register with the AAU. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at or (401) 864-2629.
