Our organization recognizes that some of our participants have goals of obtaining college scholarships. We understand that competing in "exposure tournaments" are part of our commitment to the support of those goals. However, our main goal is helping the players to improve their skills and knowledge of basketball which will enhance their joy in playing the game.
