About PSB Charlotte AAU

Thank you for visiting the official website of Pro Skills Basketball (PSB) Charlotte, North Carolina’s premiere AAU basketball club.

Our teams are instructed by experienced and knowledgeable coaches whose focus is the improvement of our individual players, not simply winning championships.

Our mission is to prepare players for the next level of their basketball careers while also teaching them life lessons that will lead to success off the court as well.


Pro Skills Basketball (PSB) AAU club teams are for intermediate to advanced level players. Each team is led by experienced and knowledgeable local coaches and are dedicated to the development of the individual players, not winning championships. We stress hard work and dedication over talent, and teamwork over individual play.

Our directors and coaches stress our “F.O.C.U.S.” acronym of life lessons to our players, which stands for Fun, Overcome, Compete, Unity, and Sacrifice. Through these life lessons, we believe that our players are learning lessons that will help them be successful in anything the do, whether on the court or off.


PSB club teams were started by Pro Skills Basketball co-founders, Logan Kosmalski and Brendan Winters, in the spring of 2012 in the Lake Norman/north Charlotte area of NC. Throughout the next few years, PSB grew to include boys and girls teams from 3rd-12th grade and expanded throughout the Charlotte area.

Today the club is home to more than 35 boys and girls teams in and around Charlotte and have helped send over 50 players go on to play at the next level in college, including over over 25 Division I players.

For the 2018 season, we have separated our Elite Team program from our local Club Team program as these Elite Teams are more intense and require a bigger commitment, and thus, needed to be treated separately.


PSB club teams are led by Pro Skills Basketball co-founder, PSB Charlotte Director, and former Davidson Wildcat and professional player, Brendan Winters. Assisting him are Jason Snow who is the North Charlotte Director and Colin Robbie who is the South Charlotte Director. Together, they team up to lead the club and ensure PSB’s vision comes to life.


Our mission is to prepare our players for the next level of their basketball careers, whether that be elementary, middle, high school, or college, while simultaneously teaching them important life lessons that will lead to success in anything they do off the court as well.

PSB’s vision is to change the win-at-all-costs, negative youth basketball environment to a more healthier, more positive environment through a focus on teaching, coaching, and learning.


Our spring/summer season runs from March – June/July with tryouts held between February and early March. Our fall/winter season runs from September – January with tryouts held in early to mid August. Our main season is the spring/summer season when ALL teams are reset before tryouts and ALL spots are open.

Our secondary season is the fall/winter season, and we simply fill in the open spots on our teams. If a player makes a team and plays during the spring/summer season then they will have the option to continue on for the following fall/winter season. However, if a player chooses not to continue then their spot will be forfeited and given to another player at tryouts.

See below for specific season and tryout info!


The spring/summer season is our “main” competitive basketball season for boys and girls and runs from March through June for our 3rd-5th grade teams and March through July for our 6th-11th grade teams.

Teams in grades 3-5 practice 2 hours per week while teams in grades 6-11 practice 3 hours a week. All teams play 1-3 weekend tournaments per month, with an average of 4-6 games per tournament.

Players must commit to all months of the season. We understand occasional conflicts, vacations, other commitments, etc. and that is ok, but players still must commit to all months regardless.

Spring/summer season tryouts will be held throughout February. All teams are reset before these tryouts and all spots are open to any players wanting to tryout. Players who make the team and play in the spring/summer season have the option to continue on into the fall/winter season, and should they choose to do so, their spot will be guaranteed.

Please read through our very detailed Spring/Summer Season Club Policies & Procedures Handbook to get a thorough understanding of our club!!

Charlotte AAU Basketball


The fall/winter season is our secondary competitive basketball season for boys and girls and runs from September through January for our 4th-12th grade teams.

Players will have the option to attend skill workouts during the week and on select Sundays. Teams in grades 3-8 will play on Sunday afternoons in a fall and winter league while teams in grades 9-12 will play on Sunday afternoons in the fall only.

Players must commit to all months of the season. Note: All teams will be “off” for Thanksgiving Break as well as Christmas Break.

Fall/winter season tryouts will be held between early and mid-August. During these tryouts all spots are NOT open like in spring/summer tryouts, but instead we will fill in any open spots on teams. Players who make the team and play in the spring/summer season have the option to continue on into the fall/winter season, and should they choose to do so, their spot will be guaranteed.

Please read through our very detailed Fall/Winter Season Club Policies & Procedures Handbook to get a thorough understanding of our club!


We have boys and girls teams from 3rd-11th grade in north and south Charlotte. Each team is led by experienced and knowledgable coaches and dedicated to the development of the individual players, not winning championships. We stress hard work and dedication over talent, and teamwork over individual play.

Our mission is to prepare our players for the next level of their basketball careers, whether that be elementary, middle, high school, or college, while simultaneously teaching them important life lessons that will lead to success in anything they do off the court as well.

Please note: Our Elite Team program is separate from our local Club Team program.

While we expect all of our teams to be competitive, our Elite Teams are for advanced/elite level players in grades 9-11 who are on track to potentially play in college and committed to the work required to get to that level.

This is a different/separate program from our other local club teams as these teams are more intense and require a larger commitment all around from coaches, parents, and players.

The mission of PSB Elite teams is to help serious, advanced-level high school players who want to play in college achieve that goal. We do this through increasing basketball skills and IQ, running a team system that gives players the best chance to be successful, and playing in tournaments that maximize players chances of being recruited. On top of that, we also work to educate players and parents on the college basketball recruiting and admissions process.

Please take time to read our 2018 Elite Team Club Policies and Procedures Handbook for ALL details!

Q: What Separates PSB Club Teams From Other Basketball Clubs?

A: 1. Our dedication to the individual improvement of our players. Of course we play every game to win, but having the most talented teams and/or winning championships are not our goals. Our goal is solely to make every child a more skilled and smarter basketball player than when he or she joined the team while also teaching them important life lessons such as hard work, overcoming adversity, teamwork, etc. Read about our club history here.

2. We hand select knowledgable and experienced coaches who are passionate teachers of the game. Not just anyone can coach with us. We do not hire fathers as coaches unless they are overly-qualified, and even that is rare. All coaches are also subjected to a background-check to ensure a safe environment for the kids. Read about our boys coaches here and our girls coaches here.

3. Our exclusive partnerships. We want to make playing for PSB an incredible experience for all players, so we partner with great companies that offer awesome benefits to our players and families, including Under Armour, Dick’s, Champions Sports Performance, and many more!

4. Last, but certainly not least, our intense and demanding, but positive environment. We are trying to change the negative culture of youth basketball through a more positive focus on teaching and coaching our players. Players, parents, and coaches are all required to sign our “Codes of Conduct”, which ensures a positive experience for everyone involved.

Q: Who Coaches the Teams?

A: Teams are coached by experienced and well-qualified local coaches. Most of our coaches are former college and/or professional players and/or coaches. Some are even current college players or high school coaches. Click our coaches link to see our past and current coaches.

Q: Does Everyone Who Tries Out Make the Team?

A: Our club teams are NOT for beginners, but rather, for intermediate to advanced level players. Unfortunately, not everyone will make a team. Players are selected by ability and attitude. We offer player development programs through our parent organization, Pro Skills Basketball, for beginners and those who do not make a team.

Q: How Many Players Are On a Team?

A: There are typically 10 players on a team and that is the max, but some teams may only have 8 or 9.

Q: Do Players Get Equal Playing Time?

A: No. Although every player will get game minutes, playing time is earned based on each player’s performance in practice and games. Playing time is earned, not given.

Q: Are There A and B Teams?

A: If enough players try out to make a second competitive team then another team may be formed. These teams are typically divided into “A” and “B” teams.

Q: What is the Commitment Level?

A: We are looking for committed players, but we understand how busy kids are these days so we are flexible when conflicts come up. We ask that you at minimum make 90% of your teams practices and games.

Q: Can My Child Play Another Sport at the Same Time?

A: Yes. We have some players who play multiple sports. Some conflicts may occur, but players should be able to attend the majority of the practices and games, unless given special permission.


Q: When and How Long is the Select Team Season?

A: The “main” competitive club basketball season is the spring/summer season when the teams play weekend tournaments. We hold tryouts between the middle and end of February after the school season and then start the season the first week of March and go through June or July depending on grade.

Our “secondary” season is the fall/winter season when teams play in Saturday or Sunday leagues. We hold tryouts between the middle and end of August and then start the season after Labor Day in September and go through January. Please click here to read more specific info about each season and for tryout information!

Q: Can I Only Play Specific Seasons?

A: Yes. We reset all teams each spring beginning with tryouts. Once those teams are formed, each player who played in the spring/summer has the option to continue on into the fall/winter season (3rd-9th grade only). The players already on the team must attend tryouts, but will already have a spot on a team. There may, however, not be any openings if all players decide to continue on into the next season. For this reason, we highly encourage players to attend the big tryouts in the spring when we are looking to fill 10 spots per team. To see when the next tryouts are, click here!

Q: When Are Practices?

A: Practices will be held two days per week, between Monday and Thursday. The times are typically between 6-9pm. In some cases, younger teams may only practice once per week.

Q: Where Will Practices Be Held?

A: Practices for our north Charlotte teams are held at local gyms in the Lake Norman area, which include schools and gyms in Huntersville, Cornelius, Davidson, and Mooresville. Practices for our south Charlotte teams are held at local gyms in the Ballantyne area. See our Gym Locations page for possibilities.

Q: Where Will Games Be? Will Teams Travel?

A: All PSB teams will play in local Charlotte or surrounding area tournaments and leagues. However, in the spring/summer season, middle school teams may finish the season with a travel tournament and high school teams will travel for recruiting purposes.

Q: When Are Tournaments and Leagues?

A: Tournaments are held on Friday evenings (sometimes), Saturdays, and Sundays during the spring/summer season. Typically, each tournament has a 3 game minimum guaranteed. Leagues are either on Saturdays or Sundays during the fall/winter season.


Q: What Kind of Tournaments Will You Play In? YBOA, NTBA, AAU Division I, II, OR III, USBA, USSSA?

A: After teams are formed, we will judge the level of competition that we feel suits each team. All types of tournaments will be considered, but we will do what’s best for the players and team in order to get the best experience possible. We may move a team up or down during the season depending on its level of success.

Q: What Does YBOA, NTBA, USBA, USSSA, and AAU Stand For?

A: YBOA stands for Youth Basketball Organization of America. NTBA stands for National Travel Basketball Association. USBA stands for United States Basketball Association. USSSA stands for United States Specialty Sports Association. AAU stands for Amateur Athletic Union.

Q: What is the Difference Between These Organizations?

A: They are all similar organizations in that they all put on youth basketball/sports tournaments, but they vary in the level of competition. In our opinion, AAU div. 1/2 has the best competition, followed by NTBA, USBA, and then AAU div. 3, USSA, and YBOA are all about the same.

Q: Do I Need Memberships to These Organizations?

A: Yes, you will be required to purchase your individual $15-20 AAU membership if the team is playing AAU, but your team will purchase any of the other organization’s memberships for you.

Q: When Do You Play in Leagues?

A: We play in leagues in the fall/winter season.

Q: When Days Do You Play in the Leagues?

A: Fall league games are typically on Saturdays, and winter league games are typically on Sundays.


Q: How Much Does it Cost to Play on a Team?

A: The team fee varies by grade and gender, but is typically between $165-$225/month depending on player division and season. In the spring/summer season, all players will be required to purchase a $130-200 discounted Under Armour player pack one time at the beginning of their season, which is the players to keep.

Q: What Does the Club Fee Cover?

A: The club fee covers gym time for practice, coaches fees, tournament entry fees, game uniform rental, insurance, and a Pro Skills Basketball team membership.

Q: What Do I Get With a Pro Skills Basketball Team Membership?

A: This membership gives each player a discount of 20% off various Pro Skills Basketball programs, including Training, Clinics, and Camps!

Q: What Do I Get With The Under Armour ‘Player Pack’?

A: The Under Armour player pack is a steeply discounted pack of UA basketball gear and shoes. Again, it varies depending on grade and gender, but typically includes a practice uniform, 2 shirts, and a bag. The older teams are typically required to buy shoes as well.

Q: Are Scholarships/Financial Aid or “Sibling Discounts” Available?

A: “Scholarships” based strictly on ability are not given. However, a limited amount of need-based financial aid is available. In these cases, the player and family must provide certain documents to prove financial aid is needed. Please see our Financial Aid page for more info.

We also have a “sibling discount” available. After the first full-price child, each other child that plays receives 25% off the monthly membership.
