Why play FLITE?
Why FLITE Basketball is your best choice
Choosing an AAU team is tough. We know that in the Northwest there are hundreds of options for players. We appreciate this opportunity to show you why FLITE Basketball is the best option for you.
Here are the biggest benefits to you when you compete in the FLITE Program.
Your development will be at another level
Big value in our program comes from the coaches that lead our players. They are first class, experienced and love developing players. Most of our coaches are ex-college assistant coaches or successful high school coaches. Here are some of the reasons you will love them:
- Our coaches run practices like a college. They coach you like you are a college player. You will not see our coaches running typical “AAU Ball” or “Lazy Zone” schemes. They are putting in their own offensive and defensive systems. They understand how today’s game is played and know how to teach it.
- Our coaches set a high standard for you. Not only do they set a high standard, they understand how to get you beyond that standard. You will finish your time as a much improved and more complete player. If you take to heart what you’ve been taught, you will return to your school as a better player, teammate and leader.
FLITE gives you the best chance to get your name out there
The biggest difference between the FLITE program and other programs is that college coaches always take our call. We’ve built a reputation of trust over the last 20 years. If we tell a coach a player can play, they trust us.
You get a return on your investment (time and money)
Playing for a travel team or AAU team requires an investment of time and money. Our job is to make sure we give every player the best chance to get the most out of their experience. You get the best opportunity to:
- Develop your game
- Get exposure
- Build lifelong friendships
- Have one of the most memorable experiences of your life
Playing for FLITE is not just about developing as a player and getting recruited. You will also get to hang out with other elite players and travel to some really fun places. It is common for FLITE players to stay in contact after the season is over. And don’t be surprised to see pictures of our players with NBA players, at MLB games, checking out the surf and other incredible opportunities. FLITE is more than just hooping on the court.
Every trip, every minute matters
We don’t waste your time with meaningless tournaments. Every tournament we go to has a specific purpose. If we are attending it, the tournament has proven to be a winner. If we aren’t attending, there is a good reason.
Those are the three biggest reasons why FLITE Basketball would be an excellent choice for you. These are the same reasons why over 1,000 players have gone through our program over the last 20 years.
We’ve been successful since 1998!
