Raleigh Basketball Teams
Thank you for visiting the official website of Pro Skills Basketball (PSB) Raleigh, North Carolina’s professional basketball club.
Our club basketball 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. We teach players skills for basketball, skills for life, skills for success
The links below contain all the necessary information for our PSB Raleigh Club Basketball Teams. Please read carefully through the entire handbook before signing up for tryouts. If you have further questions after reading, please call or email us!
We believe that basketball, like every youth sport, should be used as a vehicle to teach young people life skills like dedication, teamwork and overcoming adversity. We also believe that basketball is a great tool to keep kids active and physically healthy.
Who are PSB Directors and Coaches?
All PSB Directors are former or current high level coaches and/or players. You can read more about them here. Coaches are hand picked by PSB Directors based on very specific criteria. Directors and coaches must pass background checks and must abide by strict PSB standards. We recognize the importance of who teaches our children and that it’s not something to be taken lightly.
What is a PSB membership?
A PSB membership is an 8-month or 11-month commitment, depending on the city, and includes practice gym time, tournament/league entry fees, coaches salaries, and more. It does not include any travel or team gear/uniforms. Please check the Policies and Procedures Handbook on your nearest city team homepage for all the information on the membership.
Does PSB help with college recruiting?
As a member of PSB high school teams, players do receive help with college recruiting. However, for more intensive help and instruction, we have a Recruiting Consultancy that offers families peace of mind and the comfort of having well-informed guidance throughout the college basketball recruiting and selection process. Find out more about what our Recruiting Consultancy has to offer here.
I want to learn more, how can I get more information?
We encourage you to read the Policies and Procedures Handbook on your nearest city team homepage for ALL detailed information on our teams, but if you can’t find what you’re looking for please visit our contact us page and fill out the form or give us a call at 866-996-3888!
Are AAU teams offered in every city?
No, it depends on the city. Simply check out our AAU Basketball Teams page here to see if teams are offered in your city.
Are Our AAU basketball teams competitive?
It is the goal of PSB to field competitive AAU Basketball Teams, but our focus is not winning championships. While all teams will play in competitive tournaments and/or leagues, the competitive level of each team varies from team to team and season to season. As long as our players and teams get better, have fun, and learn life lessons, we feel we have accomplished our mission!
Is a gear package and uniform included in the membership?
No. Each player will be required to purchase a gear package that includes a uniform before every season.
How many times a week do the teams practice?
In the spring/summer, our teams will have 2 mandatory practices per week. Practices will be between 5-9pm at a local gym Monday-Thursday and repeat same day, time, and location each week. For the fall season or fall/winter season (depending on location) there will only be a few team practices. Instead, PSB will run optional skill workouts every week in which players can choose to attend as many or as few as they wish.
When are the games?
Leagues and tournaments will typically take place Friday evening through Sunday afternoons on the average of twice a month, but this varies by city. At the beginning of each season, we do our best to provide a tentative schedule for our families.
Does everyone on the team get to play in each game?
All players will get an opportunity to play in games, but the coach will determine the amount of playing time by those players that give the team the best chance to compete and/or win. Players will not simply be given playing time; they must earn it in practice and games.
Do Our AAU Basketball Teams travel?
Most of our AAU Basketball Teams do not travel, especially the elementary and middle school teams. These teams may travel occasionally to another city within reasonable driving distance, but they mostly play local events. Our high school teams do travel when necessary for recruitment or competition purposes. This occasionally requires hotel stays, and every once in a while, a plane flight as well.
