Youth Developmental Basketball League

This league is both competitive as well as instructive.  It is designed to create an atmosphere of learning through competition and correct fundamentals.  Our referees are instructed to both make calls such as traveling, double dribble, fouls, etc. and then after doing so, they are to explain to the kids that which they did wrong.  In this manner, the learning curve of these young players is greatly increased as they begin to understand how better to play the game.   Area high school athletes will again act as our referees throughout the league.  Most of these refs are members of one of the local boys or girls basketball teams and thus it makes it quite fun for the kids to be instructed by some of their idols and or role models.

​A Note From Coach “E”

It is my sincere desire to make these clinics one of the most enjoyable camp experiences you will have. These clinics will feature myself as well as other coaches who will provide valuable life lessons, great motivation & quality instruction, which can then be applied at home while practicing on one’s own. It is my intent to take each player to the next level, especially offensively. Basically, these camps will posses a ton of “heart” –energy, emotion & enthusiasm. And to know me is to expect nothing less. That’s how I played, that’s how I coach! I guarantee your child will improve!
