The Scoring Factory is excited to announce Season 3 of our Academy for boys and girls in grades 2nd through 8th.
We are building a true club structure with a built-in support system encompassing all aspects of player development, exposure and recruiting assistance under one umbrella. Our Academy vigorously promotes individual growth within a team environment, creating versatile and complete basketball players. We employ a specialized teaching curriculum including classroom components incorporating aspects of the renowned European methodology.
Our objective is long-term development and creating a brighter future for Pittsburgh's basketball landscape. Academy players are exposed to professional instruction through consistent and intense practices and scrimmages. Teams will compete in games focused on player development in a team environment.
The Academy will focus on skill development, hard-nosed defense and the construction of a broad basketball IQ. Short-term wins are not our goal and there will be no pressure to win at all costs. There are no shortcuts to excellence! Our long-term strategy is to build toward properly prepared older age groups who can then travel the country to gain exposure against elite competition.
Evaluations are open to players of all abilities. Chemistry, Attitude and Desire will be prized components of every player from every team. Those who invest in their child’s future now, will be rewarded with a fully developed basketball player.
