Founded by SDSU Hall of Famer DJ Gay, San Diego Bulldogs Basketball operates under The Boys and Girls Clubs of San Dieguito, headquartered at the Polster Branch in Carmel Valley.
San Diego Bulldogs Basketball is a players-first program that is committed to the development of its basketball players on and off the court.
We are competitive youth basketball league who aims to prepare each of our basketball players to play JV or Varsity basketball as a freshman in high school.

Our professional coaches and program directors aim to instill high-character qualities that will help our players become successful student-athletes, now and in the future.

The success of our program is not measured by wins or losses but by the improvements our players make each season.

Whether you are looking to participate casually or competitively, you'll find our organization to be a great place to learn new skills and meet new friends.

Bulldogs teams are for athletes looking to train and compete at the highest level in club and aspire to play at the varsity level in high school. Our teams are led by professional and experienced coaches. There is generally 1 coach dedicated to each team for the season, so the coach gets to know the players well and can work with the player on their development. We have teams year-round, with players from 1st grade - high school. There are 3 levels of participation: practice, league, tournament.


Fall Season: September - December
Winter Season: December - March
Spring Season: March - June
Summer Season: June - August
