Can’t say enough great things about the Rise Above AAU Program and especially founder, Brendan Carter for all of his hard work with Andrew Rocci both on and off the court! There are so many good/ impact players playing at colleges all over New England thanks to RAB & Brendan. If your son or daughter plays basketball in Boston, or the South Shore and they’re looking to take their game to the next level than this truly is a program you want to be a part of! #RABFamily
Rise Above Basketball is a top-notch AAU basketball program that I would recommend to anyone with boys or girls that want to learn how to play basketball the right way. Brendan Carter and his staff of coaches not only work to develop basketball skills, but life skills. They instill confidence in their players and ensure that they learn sportsmanship, teamwork and how to be a leader on and off the court.

Rise Above is very organized and communicates well with their players and parents. The coaching staff keeps the practices fast-paced and fresh with new practice plans every week. My son absolutely loves playing basketball for RAB. From the practices to the tournaments, this program has helped my son development on and off the court.
The program stresses the importance of one’s education and the fact that the basketball can open doors but without a strong academic portfolio, your options will be limited. In addition, Brendan is an incredible asset during the college recruitment process. He ensures that each player creates a realistic list of colleges, showcases their talent with a well-rounded highlight tape, and communicates in a professional manner with coaches. I am confident that Brendan will be a mentor to our young men long after their playing days are over.

My son learned more in this first to months with RAB than he has in the past four years of playing basketball with other club programs. Our son's experience with RAB has exceeded our expectation. The coaching, training and camps are unbeatable.

Rise Above Basketball has established itself as the premier program on the South Shore for elementary, middle school and high school basketball players. RAB knows what it takes.
