How long has the program been around?

We have had a middle school program for about 10 years now.

What are some of the things you focus on as a program?

The focus with the Soldiers is “Work Ethic”! We make sure our players know the difference between having goals & dreams and working for them. Anyone can dream big, HS, NCAA, Overseas, NBA but what are you doing daily to work towards taking yourself in that direction? We also know that every kid in our program won’t play college or go pro, but having a legit work ethic will take you anywhere you want in life! With the Soldiers… It’s always bigger than basketball!


Class of 2028

Columbus Palmer - Tough guard with an amazing ability to get to the rack. On the other end of the ball he is a "Pit Bull". He is that player that can change the game on either end.

Kiefer Johnson - Russell Westbrook
