Morris Magic Basketball is one of the top AAU programs in the area. Our philosophy is based on solid fundamentals, skill development and team basketball. We have an outstanding coaching staff with many years of experience. Not only great coaches but great mentors as well.

We have grown from 2 teams in 2007, to 12 teams this past spring by "word of mouth" advertising. We do not hand out business cards at CYO or town travel games or send out massive email blasts. Our reputation is built on our outstanding player development program, high quality coaching, and competitive teams that learn to play together. Team ball works, as proven by the NBA San Antonio Spurs.

We are an all-year basketball program that competes in the Fall, Winter, Spring and Summer (for the older teams Spring & Summer are the most competitive AAU seasons).

Our practices are at high quality facilities in the Florham Park/Morristown area. Our players come from as far away as Sparta, Mendham, Basking Ridge, South Orange, Newark and many are from the local towns Florham Park, Chatham, Madison, East Hanover, Summit... Our coaches all played BASKETBALL in college and/or have coached at the High School level. They are not only very good coaches, but also great role models for our players. Our practices are open and we encourage our parents to stop in and observe our well organized productive practice (however, please note—at both practice and games—we require no interaction with players, as players should be focused on their coaches and teammates at all times).

At most age groups we carry 1 competitive team. At times when we have a strong talent pool we will add a second team as we did in the spring with the 6th and 8th grade boys. During league play we often ask for our teams to move up to play better competition unlike some competitors who often play down to assure a winning record. We believe strong competition helps develop our players and prepares them for High School Basketball. For tournament play our more
competitive teams will travel more and play in the bigger tournaments against the best competition as our other AAU teams will play in local tournaments against like competition. We will not bring in "ringers" at mid season who will affect playing time and team chemistry. We believe in developing the players who are on each of our teams from the start of the season. Playing time is not guaranteed but we do our best to get all players sufficient game time.
