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 Raleigh AAU team structure.
PSB Raleigh AAU Teams Improvements & Structure
We’re offering more grade levels this year! We’ll offer boys teams in grades 3-11.
This year we’ll be using a few local gyms, including the big, nice Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary gym as well as a couple others.
As we’ve said, the major improvement for 2019 is extending the team membership to 11 months.
The spring/summer and fall/winters season setups will remain the same offering flexibility for all players to play other sports or participate in other activities, but this 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 Raleigh elementary and middle school players will have the option to attend competitive camps in Raleigh, Charlotte, or Winston.
High school players who are not invited by the NCAA to one of their new live period camps will attend a showcase camp in Winston-Salem 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/winter season (Sept-January) 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/winter 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 the school tryouts!
This year we’ll be doing some big events in cooperation with other PSB NC cities, including a big tournament, a competitive camp option for ES and MS kids, and a showcase camp option for our HS kids. These will be great events for our Raleigh players!
