    Winning isn't just a part of our game. It's our lifestyle.

    Striving For Greatness

    The basketball program at Bristol Preparatory is set up to promote improvement and achievement. We currently offer a Post Graduate Program for student athletes to improve academically, athletically, and socially. Graduated seniors looking to continue their playing careers and increase opportunities to earn a college scholarship, are eligible to participate in the Post Graduate Program. Transfers looking to earn additional credits are also eligible for the program.

    If you have graduated high school and your goal is to play college basketball, but you weren't able to because of academics or lack of resources, Bristol Preparatory can help. If you have graduated high school and have received offers to play in college but feel you could have earned offers from Division 1 Schools, Bristol Preparatory may be a good fit for you. If you were heavily recruited in high school and have thought about playing professionally after college, Bristol Preparatory is here for you.

    At Bristol Prep, you will learn the skills necessary to achieve success in college. Students will enroll in NCAA approved courses and be monitored closely. Education will be of important value long after your playing days are over. We take academics seriously and encourage students to give their best effort in the classroom.

    Gaining Elite Exposure

    The basketball program offers the opportunity to improve your skills. We will have 30 roster spots for our Orange and White teams. We will play a competitive 25 game schedule against other Prep, Post Graduate, College JV, and 2 year schools. We will also play in tournaments in which college coaches and recruiters will be in attendance. Practice and training at Bristol Preparatory will push you to your limits. The effort you give will be expected, not demanded. On most days there will be four basketball sessions: 1. Practice 2. Skill Development 3. Strength and Conditioning 4. Speed and Agility. Nutrition will also be a big part of your development to achieve maximum performance.

    We are looking for committed students that understand that this is an investment in their future. Bristol Prep can provide you with the tools necessary to be successful in life. At Bristol Preparatory School you have no choice but to be great.
