Eagles United is an accredited USA youth basketball organization founded in 2016 by Alex Spielman. The program invites all current 4th – 11th grade boys and 4th – 8th girls who are interested in playing basketball over the Spring/Summer. Eagles United has two locations (Sioux City, IA and Spencer, IA).
The purpose of Eagles United is to create an opportunity for youth in the surrounding areas to participate in basketball at an affordable cost. 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.
Our goals are:
• To plant seeds into the minds of young individuals that allows them to grow into unique men and women.
• To develop each player’s character by teaching the value of teamwork and sportsmanship through the game of basketball.
• To provide players with knowledge of the game by obtaining an excellent coaching staffs that use instruction and techniques that are designed to improve skills.
• To create a community where working hard towards a common goal and achieving your potential are intertwined.
• To prepare players both athletically and academically so they are ready to advance to the next level of play or stage of life.
Our goal this year is to raise $25,000 dollars. Money will be used to help families in need to afford the cost. We hope to be able to help cut the cost for families depending on their needs by allowing full and half scholarships. The scholarship amount is determined by the Eagles United board after reviewing the families’ household income (tax statement) and reviewing their letter of need. Donations will be used to purchase equipment such as basketballs, speed and agility equipment, and coaching items.
