Founded in 2010, the Royal Basketball School began with a vision:  to create a year-round basketball program, that allows kids of all skill levels to reach their full potential. Our Founder/Coach Igor Korolev recognized a need in youth basketball to refocus on basketball fundamentals.

The Royal Basketball School has grown rapidly, now encompassing over 400 active students, ages 3-15, in 8 different locations throughout Southern California. Royal Basketball continues to carry on the legacy of coach Igor, whose coaching philosophy has guided several of his students to play in the NBA, including the Lakers, Clippers, Timberwolves, Trail Blazers, Jazz, Nets, Blazers, and Bulls.
