About FAB 5 Basketball
FAB 5 is a club basketball team located in Costa Mesa, CA.
We focus on player development and competitive tournament experience for 4th-6th graders and 7th-8th graders, with the goal of preparing them for middle school and high school basketball.
Our name, FAB 5, stands for Family, Academics, Basketball (in that order!), with a strong emphasis on Teamwork: five players working together selflessly, to achieve a common goal.
4th - 6th Grades
7th - 8th Grades
What makes FAB 5 different from other club teams is our Philosophy.
We believe in well-rounded kids.
Our club team operates year-round but is divided into four seasons.
This allows our players to take breaks and/or participate in other sports.

Can I come by and check it out?
Yes! We always welcome new players. Stop by and observe, or better yet, try out a practice and see if FAB 5 Basketball is for you!
We play every other weekend (usually Saturday and Sunday) in and around Orange County.
We do our best to work around everyone's busy schedules.
During Junior American Basketball league seasons, we only play on Saturdays.
We practice at TeWinkle Middle School, located just south of the 405 Freeway and Harbor Blvd.
Meet the Coach
Brian Beerbower has been coaching basketball for 20 years.
He was born and raised in Huntington Beach, attending Sts. Simon and Jude, Hawes, Sowers, and Edison... and playing nearly every sport under the sun.
In high school, Brian started working for the City of Costa Mesa Parks and Recreation Department where he served for 12 years. During that time he became known throughout the community as Mr. Dude.
Brian began coaching in youth recreation basketball, transitioned to club basketball in 2002, and in 2007 began coaching at the high school level for Edison and Estancia High Schools.
Brian founded FAB 5 in 2011.
You'd be hard pressed to find a coach more passionate than Brian Beerbower. He cares tremendously for his players -- both on and off the court.
