Established in 2008
The Arizona Wizards basketball club was founded by James T. Ford due to his passion for the game at first as a player and then as a coach.
The Arizona Wizards were originally established in 2008 in the Ahwatukee area and has since expanded to Chandler - the heart of the East Valley. The Club's tremendous growth and success is a direct result of the focus on basketball fundamentals and family structure.
In 2017, due to the high demand in the East Valley, Coach Ford expanded his already successful high school club program to encompass middle school players at the elite, club and academy level. With this growth, the Arizona Wizards are poised to be the premier youth basketball hub of the East Valley.
The Arizona Wizards goal is to teach life lessons through the sport of basketball including commitment and respect to self, teammates and opponents while providing exemplary role models through its coaching staff for today's youth.
The Arizona Wizards aim to provide quality, cost-competitive training programs for committed athletes who are looking to train and compete at their fullest potential.
The Arizona Wizards basketball program believes that it's not how many established star athletes that you can put together - but how many great players you can truly develop.
The Arizona Wizards philosophy is to build greatness from the ground up.
