6th October 2021 in Munich – A premier basketball talent factory and Europe’s #1 basketball retailer are teaming up. Now that’s a match made in hoop heaven.
As an elite basketball academy for stellar hoop talents from Germany and all over Europe, IBAM puts a strong focus on the development of players – oftentimes resulting in university scholarships (USA) and/or pro contracts. Fielding JBBL (under 16 years) and NBBL (under 19 years) teams with national (league) and international (tournament) reputations for basketball excellence, their players are potential world class talents made right here in our hometown of Munich.
It‘s a passion project for both KICKZ and IBAM and we are honored to announce that starting with the new season this fall, we will be the team‘s official name sponsor. We look forward to collaborating with the program’s players in a variety of extra authentic ways, including the testing and staging of performance footwear, basketball equipment and new collections.
We are very excited about teaming up with a hungry program such as IBAM. They epitomize the beauty of the game by way of individual advancement, team play and of course: winning seasons. KICKZ is proud to be so closely associated to IBAM’s longstanding legacy as a basketball powerhouse in youth hoops. Especially considering coach Robby Scheinberg’s resume when it comes to assembling and developing skilled young players of various backgrounds. This makes KICKZ IBAM a lively testimony to the positive values of basketball communities all around the world.Team KICKZ
The collaboration with KICKZ is a major step for IBAM towards our goal of becoming THE premier basketball youth development program in Europe. We focus on the individual and how we can help the player become the best he can be. In order to do so, you need to work with the best – including the best equipment. KICKZ’ stellar selection of pro products is one thing – but they are also a great cultural fit for IBAM. Just like us, Team KICKZ is crazy about the game. And fully committed to winning. Their brand building expertise will be a huge support in our common quest for greatness.Coach Robby Scheinberg, KICKZ IBAM
KICKZ and IBAM share a variety of values, including diversity, equality – and of course: hustle.
Together we look forward to playing our part in inspiring more young hoopers to ball out, ultimately shaping basketball culture in Germany and beyond.
Let’s go, KICKZ IBAM! #BallersVsRacism, #NeverNotBallin
