Elite Academy October 2023

The Elite Academy will focus on individual skill development for every level and position.  The fast-paced Academy sessions will challenge players to improve their individual skills in a positive learning environment.

Elite Academy sessions will be held 1-2 times weekly, and players may attend one or both sessions.  Each session will be different and throughout the season we will work on basketball fundamentals, one on one offense and defense, three on three offense and defense, guard play, post play and basketball IQ.

The Elite Academy is open to all players, so whether you are a Desert Elite player, YMCA or Boys and Girls Club player, Recreational player, play with another club or simply desire additional training to improve your game, the Elite Academy is for you.

Training is done on a month-to-month basis.  To sign up, go to the Registration tab, or click HERE.
