“We just felt the timing was right to offer some of our cities the option to field more competitive teams as well as give those the teams the opportunity to play against the best competition possible, which UA Rise and UA Future offer.
Also, Pro Skills has been with Under Armour since we first started, so obviously these circuits being run by UA fits right into the PSB culture,” said Brendan Winters, Co-Founder of PSB and Director of PSB Club Teams.
Specifically, PSB Charlotte, having helped over 80 of its players go on to play at the DI, II, III levels in college since 2014, will feature its boys 9th-grade (15U), 10th-grade (16U), and 11th-grade (17U) Elite teams on the UA Rise as well as put a boys 6th-grade (12U), 7th-grade (13U), and 8th-grade (14U) team on the UA Future Circuit in the Southeast Region.
PSB Chattanooga will also be putting an 8th-grade (14U) boys team on the Under Armour Future Circuit in the South Region.
Lastly, PSB Denver will put its 10th grade (16U) girls team on the Under Armour Rise Girls Circuit and enter its 6th-grade (12U) boys team onto the UA Future Circuit in the Mid-America Region. We’re really excited for this opportunity, in particular, to be able to showcase our girl’s program in Denver!
Sim Frazier, Co-Director of PSB Charlotte Elite teams, had this to say:
“We are really excited about the opportunity for our players to compete on the UA Rise and Future circuits this year!
At the high school level, the Under Armour platform has been great for us in years past. The exposure and competition are second to none. Many of our players’ recruitment has benefited in major ways by playing in Under Armour events. UA Rise should be more of the same.
UA Future gives us a chance to expose our younger guys to a new level of competition. This as a great way to continue the development of our players and our organization nationally!”
