Girls / Grades 9-12

Fall 2022 HS Prep Program

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

Hard Work Beats Talent

This program is targeted to players in, or entering, High School. Tryouts will be held September 10th to determine the team. The schedule will NOT conflict with the start of high school basketball. Teams will receive 2-3 practices per week and play in four tournaments.

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.

excellent experience

My daughter has been with Excel basketball club for 5 years. Her time with Excel has been wondrous. With
Excel fundamentals are stressed, team play is encouraged, and the competition is challenging. Training with & playing for Excel she has gained a stronger love and commitment to the game along with a better understanding of the game both offensively and defensively. Excel coaches genuinely cares about each player and their progress. I would highly recommend Excel to any player who is looking to improve their game and have a better understanding of how the game is supposed to be played the right way.

Thanks Excel
