Our Mission

To help players develop game-specific skills that produce in-game results in both private basketball training or group workout settings. Open to players of all ages and abilities.

" I've always had a strong love for the game of basketball and over my transitional years from player to coach, I have developed a strong love for mentoring young, driven, and motivated female athletes through the game of basketball. Basketball has granted me so many opportunities, from seeing different parts of the world to creating life long friendships and I am forever grateful for that.  I'm a strong believer that what you put into the game, is what you will get out of it. My goal through my small group training is to help you achieve your basketball goals and dreams through my very detail oriented, high energy, and fun approach to skills training. No matter what position you play, we focus on developing core attributes needed to be an effective offensive threat from anywhere on the court. In today’s era of position-less basketball, it’s important for every player to develop these individual offensive skills regardless of size. I have been incredibly fortunate to have been coached by some of the best throughout my playing journey, and I hope to be able to share the basketball knowledge I carry with me, with you, to help you achieve greatness. I look forward to working with you and helping you achieve your basketball goals".

We create a "classroom setting" in our sessions to support a “teaching” approach to player development. Explanation and demonstration is imperative for players to develop a better understanding of the game.

TESTIMONIAL

An Outstanding Experience

Our daughter has had an outstanding experience with Excel this past year. In one season with the club, her fundamentals have strengthened at an impressive rate.  She is developing confidence, leadership skills & a strong work ethic for the game.

The girls have become a close knit team & leave practices with big smiles. We recommend the club to anyone serious about their game.
