Pennsylvania's Largest and Most Successful girls and boys AAU basketball Program
Who We Are
Who is Team Pennsylvania?
TEAM PENNSYLVANIA is committed to being the best AAU basketball program in Pennsylvania. Attracting the top coaches, the top players, and the top trainers to the club is the foundation of our success. While developing teams that compete at the highest level on the court will be a result, our mission is to provide the best overall development of our athletes in the club.
TEAM PA PRODUCES BETTER PLAYERS AND ATHLETES
TEAM PENNSYLVANIA has a unique philosophy around player development and how practices are structured. Our practices put a significant focus on skill and athletic development. All players, regardless of position are trained to be better ball-handlers and trained to be “stronger, faster, and quicker.” In addition, TEAM PA puts a major focus on the defensive side of the ball. Put all this together and opponents do not want to meet our teams on the court.
OVER 250 TEAM PA PLAYERS PLACED IN COLLEGE PROGRAMS
TEAM PENNSYLVANIA boasts over 250 players graduating from our club and playing basketball in college; however, we are just getting started. Over the last couple years, the club has upgraded our process in assisting young athletes earn college scholarships. First, we have a multi-year agreement with HUDL-the premier sports video service for high school athletes. Next, we hired Corey Dickerson as our Director of College Placement. Corey brings to the club experience with a very successful College Placement Company and the most impressive list of college commitments in the area over the last few years.
PLAYERS NO LONGER TRAVEL TO PHILLY TO FIND AN AAU TEAM
Up until recently, top players in Central Pennsylvania have felt that they needed to travel to Philadelphia to find the right AAU team. There was a perception that clubs, coaches, and players were better the closer you got to Philly. As of today, that is a myth. Central Pennsylvania is rich with high-level male and female basketball players at all grade levels. With so many clubs in the area, top players have been spread too thin. To solve this issue, a club needed to step up and be a one-stop shop for all top players and create the best teams with the best players in Central Pennsylvania. That club is TEAM PENNSYLVANIA.
“I would have never imagined when I started our training program in 2002 that our program would evolve into something that would help so many kids in South Central PA and beyond areas. We are the only one-stop-shop program and that gets me excited that we can meet a player’s full basketball needs year after year”
“I am honored and excited to take over the Team Pennsylvania Program from Charlie. We owe Charlie and his team a sincere thank you for what they have built over the last 11 years. Our future looks very bright and we cannot help but notice an exciting buzz in the gyms across the mid-state about Team PA!”
