About us

Founded in 2014, Basketball Society is a lifestyle brand and multimedia platform that provides diverse and insightful basketball coverage, hosts/sponsors basketball events and experiences, and offers skills training and development resources for players and teams. Our mission is to help people utilize basketball knowledge, skill sets, and resources to create opportunities for themselves and others in society.

Events we’ve hosted include our annual Back To School All-Star Game in Silver Spring, Maryland with our BBH Dynamism affiliates. In 2018, we hosted our first annual Summer Series Cookout & Open Run in Monmouth Junction, New Jersey for high school and college athletes to work out with high-level coaches and trainers in a cookout atmosphere with free giveaways. 

As credentialed media, we cover major tournaments and leagues, including the Big East, Big Ten, Ivy League, The Basketball Tournament, the BIG3, and more.

We are a host The Ladies League, an organized women’s basketball league based in Silver Spring, Maryland with BBH Dynamism. In October 2018, 7-time WNBA All-Star Cappie Pondexter was named an official spokesperson of The Ladies League.

Basketball Society was a sponsor for The Becoming Conference in June 2018, a conference in Princeton, New Jersey designed to empower, educate and inspire girls ages 13-18.

Our skills and development training was launched in 2015 by our founder and lead skills trainer Martin Soaries. We have trained hundreds of kids in that time focusing mainly on individual 1-on-1  and small group sessions based in central New Jersey. We consult and help run team practices and host clinics. Coach Martin Soaries hosted a free clinic in Accra, Ghana in October 2016. We have worked with players from nationally ranked AAU programs out of central New Jersey, including WeR1 and the NJ Bulldogs.
