Boys / Grades 9-12

Fall 2022 HS Prep Program

Sharpen your skills to perform at your best and make the team

Hard Work Beats Talent

Trying out for your high school basketball teams this year? Don’t head into tryouts without being prepared! Excel’s High School Prep Program will help you get into peak shape and sharpen the skills needed to perform at your best and make the team.

Players will learn what to expect at tryouts, what coaches are looking for and how to maximize their chances to make and play for their high school team. Workouts will realistically be more challenging than anything players will experience on their high school teams.

To Be Determined


Excellent Experience

I have had both a boy and a girl in the Excel Program since it began and both of them have developed into incredible basketball players for the Excel club and for their high school teams as a result. The coaches are all excellent, and they foster an inclusive environment that goes beyond basketball; developing self esteem, leadership skills and so much more in all of their young athletes. It has been a very positive experience for our family.

Thank you Excel!
