Dear Play Hard Hoops Families:
PHH will develop travel basketball teams in the city this Winter 2019-2020. We opened a program called the Warriors in our suburban basketball community two years ago, and it grew to over 50 travel hoopers last year on six separate teams.
In the city, we are partnering with LVL Basketball, an elite level program over the past several years. Their 'Lakers' teams have had tremondous success in the region and provide a strong team experience where players consistenly get better. Many of their alumni are starring in high school basketball today
Our LVL-PHH city partnership will build Warriors 2nd/3rd feeder through 8th grade boys and girls teams. Coach Jared Ashe will direct the effort and coach a number of the teams along with a terrific staff. Practices and skills sessions will be run out of the Northside area of Chicago.
Our three primary goals for the program are to provide (1) coaching that will give your son or daughter a greater opportunity to develop their basketball skill level and knowledge of the game, (2) a structured schedule with good competition through a Travel Feeder League, and 3-4 one day shootout tournaments over the course of 4+ months and (3) an avenue for competitve hoopers to develop friendships and enjoy being part of a team. We are very excited to start building this experience for parents and players in Chicago.
At the end of the season, we expect to see that our Warriors players have greatly progressed individually and as a team...and of course, feel passionate about taking the next step as a player. Travel basketball can help foster this growth, and there are no secrets to being successful on the court; hard work, patience, discipline and a desire to compete regardless of the consequences.
Thank you again for your consideration of LVL-PHH for your basketball development. We’d be delighted to help with any follow up questions or requests for additional information.
Look forward to seeing you on the court soon! Play Hard!!!
