YOU'RE SERIOUS ABOUT MAKING

THE TEAM.

My name is Jim Psaras.  I grew up in the City by the Sea and graduated from Rogers High School in 1982. I teach elementary school physical education and health in Newport. I coached basketball for 29 seasons in Newport, first at Thompson Middle School, second with the Rogers freshmen, third with the Rogers junior varsity and the last 26 seasons with the Rogers varsity. In March of 2014 I retired from coaching.​

PSARAS SKILLS ACADEMY

Psaras Skills Academy is specifically designed to enhance each student’s skills through intense repetition of game-simulated training sessions. Training sessions are opportunities for boys and girls to learn the game of basketball at a more advanced level. Those who attend training sessions will receive the best instruction from Coach Psaras, who has twenty-nine years of experience in coaching at the Five-Star Camp and at the high school level.

The foundation of the Psaras Skills Academy philosophy is to show players how to work hard, teach players how to work and play smart, and inspire players to work consistently once training is over. Players will learn the level of effort required to play successful basketball, as well as how to train with purpose to get there.

If you want to play basketball for middle school, high school, or college teams get the experience you need to succeed.
