Everything You Need to Know

  •   Tournament Cost is $50 per player via Business Venmo @proskillshoops. This covers the team registration fee and coaching costs. No matter how many games you play, the cost is the same.
  • Shoot Out cost is $40 per player via business Venmo @proskillshoops
  •  The expectation for Elite Team players is basketball first. We understand that many players play multiple sports but our team rosters are carefully balanced and thought out. To compete at the highest levels we need a full team roster. Only by having full commitment can our teams compete at the highest levels. 
  •   Basketball tournaments are very different than soccer or baseball tournaments. Some tournaments have pool play and championship games, but others might just be for playing experience
  •   For Premiere & Select teams: Please make sure to indicate player availability at least the week before and no later than the Monday before a tournament. If you don’t indicate availability by Monday, your player may not play. We understand that everyone has busy schedules, but we don’t want to register for a tournament without enough players committed. We need a minimum of 7-8 players in order to register.
  •   For Elite teams the deadline to indicate availability is Tuesday of the week PRIOR to the tournament (12 days)
  •   Game times: When indicating availability, you may indicate preferred times. In some tournaments we might be able to make requests for pool play games, but we cannot guarantee them. Requests are due the week before the tournament. Game times are not released until the Thursday before and are subject to change until Friday night.
    • Game times can be any time from 7am-8:30pm
  •   Players that indicate yes may be given priority playing over players who indicate maybe 
  •   If you need to cancel 48 hours before a game, please text BOTH Lindsey 310-251-1441 and your coach so we can help to find a replacement. Last second cancelations will still be responsible for the tournament fee.
  •  Most tournaments have entrance fees for spectators and many only take cash, ie $10-15 per adult $5 child
  •  Most tournaments charge for parking $5-$15, cash only
  •  There are often snacks and candy for purchase but you may bring player snacks
  • Gym space is limited, so you only need to arrive in the gym 20 mins before tip off, unless you coach has told you differently.
  • Playing time is the decision of the coach. Players typically practice for a several months before tournaments.
  • There is no mercy rule in basketball. Scores can be high. The players are there for the experience and competition.
