He played there several years before being recruited by INSEP, the National Institute for Sport and Physical Education. At 13 years old, he was already talking about his goals in front of the INSEP TV cameras : « I started playing basketball because I saw my parents play and I wanted to try it out. I wanted to be like my dad or my mom. And pretty soon I knew what my goals would be. Go as high as I can... playing in the NBA or in Euroleague. Seing all the great players that came here in INSEP, I'm really honored to be part of the brotherhood. »

On February 13, 2016, at only 15, Théo Maledon played his first game in NM1 (French Division 3) against Get Vosges.
