The Mission of BTS Academy is to provide an all-encompassing, blended learning experience that prepares our students for success in post-secondary education while providing professional level athletic training.
BigTyme Sports Preparatory Academy is the merging of two strong passions of our founders, Shelmon Smith and Michael Bables: education and athletics. Our owners believe that the greatest way to make it in this world is to educate yourself so that you can be prepared to work through and figure out whatever comes up in your world.
BigTyme Sports has been a company of high level youth basketball. Led by Michael Bables, a professional athlete and highly sought after coach, BigTyme has played a major part in getting over 30 athletes full-ride scholarships to college.
