We’re making a ton of improvements to our club team structure nationally which you can read about in part 1 and part 2 of previous announcements, but we want to also update you on the upgrades we’re making to our PSB Greensboro AAU team structure.
PSB Greensboro AAU Teams Improvements & Structure
This season we’re moving all of our teams to Southeast Guilford high school in order to have bigger, better, more consistent access to the gym for practices and workouts. This will also allow us to offer extra, optional Sunday skill workouts to our players who want to attend when not playing in tournaments!
We will offer boys teams in grades 3-9.
As we’ve said, the major improvement for 2019 is extending the team membership to 8 months to cover spring, summer, and fall.
The spring/summer season will be team practices and tournaments while the fall season will be optional skill workouts and league play (more on this below). All seasons offer flexibility for players to play other sports or participate in other activities, but putting them together will enable us to truly create the best basketball experience possible as explained in the past emails.
The membership will be broken into even, lower installments of $155/month.
Competitive and Showcase Camps
This summer we’ll offer competitive camps for our elementary and middle school players and a showcase camp for our high school players.
PSB Greensboro elementary and middle school players will have the option to attend competitive camps in Greensboro, Winston, or Charlotte.
High school players who are not invited by the NCAA to one of their new live period camps will attend a PSB showcase camp in Winston where we’ll combine high-level skill work and competitions with the opportunity to showcase skills to college coaches and scouts.
NOTE: Our normal week-long summer camps will still be available as well.
We’re extremely excited to now have the fall season (Sept-Oct) as part of the membership. This is going to be so beneficial for every player from elementary through high school.
For elementary and middle school players, we’ll be able to focus on individual skills in the fall without missing a beat team-wise in fall and winter league games as they have practiced and played together all spring and summer.
For high school players, we’ll be able to better help these players make their JV, Varsity, and/or get recruited to play in college (if that’s what they want) through our pre-season and in-season workouts led by high-level coaches and trainers.
All players should be extremely prepared for their school tryouts!
Because of the current size of PSB Greensboro and PSB Winston-Salem and their proximity to each other, Winston-Salem and Greensboro will now become a central hub for many NC and southeast PSB events, including a huge competitive camp in July in Winston-Salem for elementary and middle school PSB players, a big showcase camp at the end of July in Winston-Salem for PSB high school players, but also a “PSB State Championship” tournament for all PSB NC teams that will be held in Greensboro at Southeast Guilford!
