The primary focus of the VEBC (Vegas Elite Basketball Club) has always been on the development of the individual player. We feel as our individual members improve, so will our teams. During competition, our focus is more on the improvement of our members and teams, rather than on the wins and losses. Sometimes this can be a difficult concept to grasp within a competitive club, but we believe that by challenging our members and teams to compete at all times at the highest levels of their capability that, win or lose, through competition comes the greatest development. Then, the wins and losses become insignificant and the ability to compete becomes the focus.
With that said, it is very important that we place each member in a program that will offer him/her the best opportunity to compete, and therefore to grow and develop as a basketball player. Your child will be evaluated based on physical size, athletic ability, skill level, and experience. Once evaluated, he/she will be placed into one of our two programs:
1) Player Development Program (PDP) - This program is for beginner to intermediate level players. We have four divisions within the PDP.
2) Travel Team Program - This program is for intermediate to advanced players. Travel teams for boys begin at 2nd grade and for girls at 5th grade.
