3 PSB Improvements to AAU Basketball


Youth / AAU basketball is often disorganized, focused solely on winning, and generally, frustrating. But we, at Pro Skills Basketball, believe kids and parents deserve better than that!

At PSB, we strive to provide a more professional experience for parents, players and coaches—one focused on organized communication, fun, mutual respect, and personal growth—on and off the court.

We’ve been involved with AAU basketball for the last 8 years and have seen the good, the bad, and the ugly. Throughout that time, we’ve been able to take that good, make fixes to the bad and the ugly, and develop a much more professional experience for those players and parents who are members of our PSB Club Teams.

#2 A training and certification program for our coaches

#3 An organized communication system for our parents.

With great coaches, you can make a positive impact on young athletes through a strong coach-player relationship.

The success of a great coach is not just measured by the number of games he or she can win, but also through the impact and influence that they have on their athletes. Successful coaches are strong motivators who focus on promoting positive behaviors and are the ones who ensure success for their athletes even beyond the court.
