Innovative BASKETBALL CLUB concept providing stepping stone development from beginner leagues to our Elite teams!
Bald Eagle stands against Sport Specialization in youth and we believe kids should be multi-sport athletes. We strive to create a system where kids can engage in high-level basketball year-round without having to quit their traditionally in-season sports.
The Bald Eagle Basketball Club allows players to advance their game 1-4 times a week all year, when it fits their schedule, through high-level coaching and competition. We do this through Academy Training, Growth Leagues and AAU Teams.
THE STATE OF BASKETBALL TODAY
There is a massive void in the industry where skills are not being taught by Professional, high quality coaches. Player development is suffering despite all the money being spent on "shiny things".
To be blunt, the typical Club or AAU Basketball program today is frequently misrepresented as some sort of "elite" level of play like it used to be. The new reality is that 90% of the current AAU programs out there are nothing more than an overpriced recreation league.
Outside of AAU, traditional Recreation Leagues are the other option. Some are good, but ALL are hit-or-miss because they rely on volunteer coaches who typically lack experience and expertise.
Entire seasons of development and passion for the game can be lost by putting kids in the wrong environment.
The Bald Eagle Basketball Club solves these issues with guaranteed Pro-Coaching and Expert Programming coupled with an empowering message from The Positive Coaching Alliance. We include high repetitions and quality feedback in various formats of competition with annualized growth plans specific to their age, goals and current level of skill.
We build our programs and message to support varying interests from multi-sport athletes to sport-specialized basketball players. We operate our seasons in the same Fall-Winter-Spring-Summer seasons so players can do as much or as little as they choose.
We offer membership discounts when players sign up for an entire season whether they can make every session or not. We don't micromanage or make you feel bad if you can't attend a session. It's a "come when it works for your family" expectation.
At every event, we practice skill development and structured "part to whole" progressions that evolve into skill-specific competitions and game situations.
This is EXACTLY the environment players need to develop & thrive, not just "more court time", but quality court time delivered by professional, expert coaches.
BALD EAGLE BASKETBALL CLUB PROGRAMS
1. Growth Leagues (G-Leagues)
2. Academy Skills Training (Small Group Training, Camps, Private Training)
3. Player Health (Physical/Mental/Emotional/Parental)
4. AAU/Club Elite Teams (1 team/age group; Tryout only)
Program 1: GROWTH LEAGUES
Similar to the NBA model, Coach Bob designed a G-League concept so that youth players interested in developing their game could get quality training in a competitive environment for maximum GROWTH.
Practice and Games on same day. The format includes a 45min Skills practice led by a Pro Coach followed by 45 minutes of various game formats (2v2,3v3,5v5, full, half, etc) with unique rules or stipulations to maximize growth, development and to create a perfectly balanced competitive environment.
The G-League design includes In-House Tournaments, Player Awards and Team Prizes. We emphasize team culture, respect & inclusion in a highly active and sportsmanship centered competitive environment.
We offer the following G-League programs in both BOYS and GIRLS Divisions. At times in certain sessions, we merge boys and girls to maximize the opportunity for growth or to manage enrollment.
To register for G-League you will need to go to the web page specifically for your age group. Friends in the same grade range can stay together for skill work. We change teams regularly for maximum quality variation, so we do not guarantee friends will always be on the same team during games but they will be playing each other if not on same team.
