All new players will receive a uniform package. Players will receive a custom reversible uniform, backpack, and shooting shirt.


Each season we will have multiple teams at each grade level. Teams will be split up based on skill level, position and where our staff best believes your child will develop their individual skill set and contribute the most to their respective team.


TRYOUTS Tryouts for the Fall season are held at the end of August (please click tabs above for specific tryout info at each of our locations).
SUMMER SEASON The fall travel season runs from the beginning of Aug. through the end of Sept. (High school teams will practice a few times in June, but the bulk of practices and all of the games will take place in July, due to commitments with their respective high school programs.
AGES 2nd-12th grade boys
TOURNAMENTS Teams will play in at least 4 weekend events (usually within an hours drive of the team's practice location). Tournaments are one OR two-day events that are held on Saturdays and Sundays and feature 2-3 games each day).
PRACTICE DAYS Players will participate in one team practices each week. Practices will be held on Wednesday between 4pm-10pm. We collect conflicts during tryout registration and do our best to create a practice schedule that works for the majority of players on each team.
FLEX TEAMS Flex Teams are for players who play multiple sports. One practice a week and play a MAX of 4 one day tournaments


COMPETITION We will have multiple teams at most grade levels. This allows us to place players appropriately based on their skill level and position. We will work very closely with tournament directors to ensure that your child’s team is playing against other teams that will provide a challenging but competitive matchup.
PLAYING TIME Powerhouse Basketball is a competitive developmental program. Players are guaranteed at least 40% playing time over the course of a tournament. Although we are trying to compete in tournament games, we believe it is more important to develop all players. By guaranteeing more game reps, we are confident that players will improve their skill set and ability to play the game. (Coaches of elite teams do not have to follow this playing time rule. If your child is being placed on an elite team, you will be notified at the start of the season.)
COACHES Our coaches are trained to provide positive and constructive feedback to the players in skills training and during the game. The constant feedback provided by coaches and staff will expedite the process for skill development. (Please click "Coaching Staff" to view a complete list of POWERHOUSE coaches.)
