ABOUT US

defense first. positionless basketball.

We TEACH all skills to all players, with the goal of developing versatile, Dynamic basketball players that can compete at the highest levels of AAU, the NCAA AND beyond. In our system, players must be able to shoot efficiently, dribble effectively, make solid passes, and guard multiple positions. Our well-rounded approach to development gives players an advantage.

Welcome to Lockdown

 

In 2010, I founded ATX Lockdown Basketball to make a difference. It was clear that college coaches weren't actively recruiting central Texas. Our goal was to help bring more awareness to the great basketball being played in this area, and to give more kids an opportunity to earn a scholarship and pursue their dream of playing basketball at the next level.

 

Over ten years later, ATX Lockdown Basketball is an established, winnning organization, built on an innovative approach to player development and free-flowing style of play. We also have a track record for student-athletes graduating and attending college, with many receiving scholarships to play at the DI, DII and DIII levels.
