With 6 hoops and wood flooring, this 6,500 square foot full-size gym is great for training, team practice and large camps. And set back in the Oakland Hills above Highway 13, with plenty of private parking, it’s also the most convenient place in Oakland for your kids to hone their basketball skills.

Note: when you arrive on campus, stay left at the main school office and follow that road all the way back to the parking lot next to the baseball field.
