Now you don’t have to worry if it’s the right fit. Our placement process ensures you get a detailed evaluation so you can play on a team with balanced positions. No more worrying being the only post player or playing on a team with all guards. We take the time to make sure your skills are valued in the right way!

NIT for grades 3 – 5
NCAA for grades 6 – 8
NBA for players in grades 9 – 11
After you're division placement, we move you to a practice group that is comparable to your current skill level and experience. There can be multiple practice groups within each division. Here we get an in-depth evaluation to learn more about your entire skill set.
