Pennsylvania's Largest and Most Successful girls and boys AAU basketball Program

Who We Are

Mission Statement

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 will be the foundation of our success. While developing teams that compete at the highest level on the court will be a result, our mission will be to provide the best overall development of our athletes in the club. We will do this by focusing on the following four pillars:

 

  • Basketball Skill Development with a focus on the defensive end of the floor
  • Fitness Training with a focus on player Strength, Speed, Conditioning, and Injury Prevention
  • Development of high character teams and players who respect the game and each other
  • Working closely with all players in the club to meet their goals with college placement

Who We Are

In 2009 Advanced Hoops had its inaugural AAU season. After 5 years of building the largest AAU program in Central Pennsylvania to 38 teams, Charlie Fortney decided to create TEAM PENNSYLVANIA AAU Showcase teams for both boys and girls basketball. Over the last 11 years Team Pennsylvania has gained a reputation in helping players get to the collegiate level. The club is extremely proud of the long alumni list of Division I, II & III players that is still growing today.

In September of 2021, Charlie passed the club to a new owner, Greg Cavoli. Greg and Charlie had partnered together in the club leading up to this day to make the transition a smooth one. Charlie remains a trusted consultant to the program and still operates Advanced Training Programs, a training partner to Team Pennsylvania. Under the new leadership of Greg, Team Pennsylvania is currently preparing for an exciting future. As the club approaches the 2022 season expect some big announcements on both the girls and boys side of the program !

“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”

Charlie Fortney

Original Founder

“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!”
