CMW_0295Here at Pro Skills Basketball, one of the main things we do aside from our basketball clinics and camps is our PSB Select “AAU” (also known as “club” or “competitive”) teams.

We’ve been running these AAU basketball teams for the last 6 years or so, and we’ve seen the tremendous value that AAU brings to young kids if done the right way. We now have AAU teams in the Charlotte and Lake Norman areas, Denver Colorado, and Greensboro NC!

One of the things we do in our PSB Select club is, if we have multiple teams in a grade, we form multiple teams and break them up into “A” and “B” teams, which we label “Gold” and “Black” (our club colors).
