Fairport is home to our school-based Red Raiders basketball program. Fairport, often called the “Crown Jewel of the Erie Canal”, is a suburb 9 miles east of Rochester, NY. Our village is a historic community of about 5,000 people located along the Erie Canal in the southeastern portion of Monroe County. It features quiet residential neighborhoods with tree-lined streets, a quaint commercial district with unique shops and restaurants, and many businesses and industries.

HIGH LEVEL THINKING
With direction from the legendary Coach Fitch and his staff, players in the program are taught “the Fairport way” early on. The style is demanding and requires a strong basketball IQ. The result is a beautiful brand of basketball where the ball zips around the floor to the open man and the defense works as one collective unit to stifle their opponents.
Fairport exudes toughness
Fairport players prepare for, and play hard, at all times. When something seems impossible, they see a challenge and an opportunity. They seize every chance to push themselves beyond their own limits. The players routinely sacrifice their bodies to make plays where others would not. They owe it to their brothers, and expect the same in return.
