Eagles United is an accredited USA Youth Development basketball academy featuring boys teams 4th – 11th grade and girls teams 4th – 8th grade. Eagles United recognizes that basketball is only one aspect of a young person’s life. We want to be a memorable part of their journey. We are committed to providing a healthy and safe environment where our athletes athletic abilities can soar. Our focus is not just winning basketball games, but to create a culture where athletes can increase their basketball skills, while enjoying the companionship of their fellow teammates and coaches. Jean Vanier (1992) “From Brokenness to Community” explains the importance of building a community and states; “Community is not uniformity. There is a danger today, in our world, to want everybody to be the same, but then we lose our uniqueness” (p.43). We must learn to respect others and their personal development because “growth will come as we come closer to people who are different from us” (p.38). Our mission is to capture that uniqueness. Our organization cannot grow without being diversified. Each person provides uniqueness to our organization. Eagles United is committed to complete the personal growth of our athletes by embracing their uniqueness.

Eagles United is a 501(c)3 Organization. We are committed to treating everyone equally regardless of their economic background. Everyone on the team has the equal opportunity to play because time on the court is based on hard work and academic achievement rather than an ability to pay travel costs and tournament fees.
