The Farm System


  • Our AAU/travel team is dedicated to ensuring both individual and team success. Our focus is on developing players at a high level to help them achieve their goals and reach the next level of their basketball career. We prioritize the fundamentals of basketball to develop well-rounded players. Unlike other programs that may have too many teams, we concentrate on the development of all teams and players, and we identify and assess each player's needs to place them in the best position to grow on and off the court. Our state-of-the-art facility provides all our players with the necessary tools and resources required to hone their skills. We understand that each player develops at a different pace, and that's why we strive to create an environment that promotes healthy competition and encourages players to become the best version of themselves.

    Practices for the upcoming season will start the week of March 11th and will continue until the last week of May, with a week off for spring break. Each week, there will be two practices - one focused on team drills and game situations, and the other on skill development, strength and conditioning, and mental toughness. The final practice dates will be determined after the teams are created. Throughout the season, teams will participate in various tournaments. The total cost of the season will be $1,100, which will cover the uniform, practice jersey, backpack, shooting shirt, and t-shirt. There will be various fundraising options and payment plans available to make the cost of the season affordable for all athletes.
