NASBI Conference

The New School Basketball Team is a founding member of the Northeast Art School Basketball Invitational!

Learn More.


The basketball team was the catalyst for the athletics program and formed it’s first team in 2009, competing in adult leagues in the city.  Now it boasts a full schedule against collegiate teams from November – March which culminates with the Northeast Art School Basketball Invitational (NASBI). The team is open to all gender.


The history of the New School Basketball Team is short and sweet. In 2009 a student, Alex Knapp (now assistant coach) decided that it was time for our storied school to have an athletics team. A small but dedicated group of students answered the call to play in a Chelsea Piers Men’s League, which has now turned into a full-fledged varsity team that plays other universities in the Northeast.
