3v3 League + Skill Development

Youth Player Development League (YPDL)3v3 LEAGUE (YPDL) + SKILL DEVELOPMENT

Leadership building through game play.

The Develop & Compete program was created by Coach Q James and Coach Audrey Taylor. Both coaches worked tirelessly to create a program that harnessed the true value of sports play (confidence, accountability, discipline, etc.), encourages skill development, provides a safe & productive environment, and supports the athlete(s) life & basketball goals.

PROGRAM OBJECTIVES:

TEACH THE GAME – We teach them the why behind an action, move, and offensive concept. We develop play makers, not play runners. A positive environment is also necessary, we end every sessions with players and coaches encouraging each other even after a tough competitive game!

CULTIVATE LEADERS – This is what makes us different. We encourage our players to do more than play basketball. We provide job & volunteer opportunities, encourage philanthropy & community service, prepare young coaches in our Jr Coaching Program, as well as provide empowerment workshops.

PROVIDE RESOURCES – We provide our parents and players with resources needed to support our players journey. We have partnered with some amazing organizations!

  • Social & Emotional Learning(S.E.L) provide by Five Star Life– an academic, character, and leadership curriculum.
  • BAMSOPA- Targeted tutoring (SAT prep & more) and performing arts academy
