Train To Compete

Dubai Tribe Basketball Club launched in 2007 as the first ever expat basketball club in the UAE.  The Club program is distinguished from other UAE basketball programs by providing an advanced team oriented training approach.  Team basketball concepts are progressively introduced over an entire school year in order to prepare elite basketball athletes for competition locally and internationally.  An active local games schedule as well as opportunities to compete internationally are key foundational characteristics of the program.  In fact Dubai Tribe Basketball Club is the first UAE team to ever compete in USA and Europe and our top athletes have done so almost annually since 2012.


The Dubai Tribe basketball curriculum combines the athletic up-tempo North American style of basketball with the tactical skill set of the European game providing our student athletes with a comprehensive international basketball development experience. Throughout the year, program participants will also benefit from regular visits by guest speakers and trainers (former Olympic medalists, NCAA players, national team players, Professional players and coaches, international strength and conditioning coaches, etc.).


Graduates from our Club have received university basketball scholarships, competed at the university level in the Middle East, Europe and North America (first UAE program to produce USA NCAA players), participated in national team programs, and competed at semi-professional and professional ranks. Our coaching staff is the most accomplished youth development team in the Middle East and is uniquely experienced in preparing young athletes to compete at the university level and preparing them for professional playing careers. Share with us your objectives and we will work with you to reach your goals.

Our Four Pillars of Success

  • Advanced individual skills development

  • Teaching team concepts

  • Athletic development of participants

  • Competition schedule (locally and internationally)

Competition Season

The 2019-2020 season will be comprised of exhibition games versus local competition (expat programs and Emirati clubs),  local leagues, as well as international trips (Austria and USA).  

The U18 boys team became the first expat team ever (regardless of age or gender) to officially register with the UAE Basketball Association and participate in the UAE 2019-2020 regular season (U19 Men's Division).

Athletic Performance Training

Dubai Tribe supports our athletes in their athletic performance training planning with a focus on developing strength, power, explosiveness, speed and quickness of our athletes to ensure they reach their maximum athletic potential and in a manner that will reduce risk of basketball related injuries.
