Varsity Elite Page
Varsity Elite started in the summer of 2004. After the success of the Junior Varsity program the year before, many players desired to return creating the Varsity program. This program was designed to be highly competitive and immediately attracted the top Yeshiva League players. Through scouting and recruiting, the directors were able to keep the competition and skill at a very high level.

In order to maintain the high level of play and seriousness of the clinics and league games, the Varsity program is only open to players on their school team. JV Elite is considered an advanced program and therefore ALL PLAYERS CURRENTLY ON THEIR SCHOOL'S BASKETBALL TEAM ARE INVITED. Exceptions, are made in certain situations. Many times coaches or players will recommend others who may not be on the team but will benefit from participating in the summer program. We are always looking for prospects and welcome any recommendations from players and coaches.

The goal for each player of the Varsity program is to live and breathe the complete Elite basketball experience. Some of the daily activities include:Instructive Clinics and Station Drills,Competitive Intramural League and Playoffs,Clinics by Guest Coaches and Players,2 on 2 tournament, Pickup Games with Staff, All Star Game, Award Ceremony with Trophies, Nightly Barbecues
