New Jersey Blaze

New Jersey Blaze was founded in 2015 by Darren Westley as a non-profit AAU basketball program. Our goal has always been to provide young athletes with the opportunity to play AAU basketball at a high level during the spring, summer and fall months. We bring the best players from the area together as one organization to work towards a common goal of becoming the best that we can and representing our team and community by succeeding at a high level of play and personal excellence. We take pride in hard work and dedication to the gym while also teaching players fundamentals and basic skills.

You can practice shooting eight hours a day, but if your technique is wrong then all you become is very good at shooting the wrong way. Get the fundamentals down and the level of everything you do will rise.

— Michael Jordan
