Monroe's Official Non Profit Travel Basketball Program

Join The


Our mission is to provide a local basketball hub for all Monroe County families.  To build a home for our youth athletes to learn and love the game of basketball at an early age.  Where boys and girls can learn the fundamentals without paying large amounts of money or traveling to other areas of Michigan or Ohio.  Finding our community leaders to build reputable camps and coaching clinics.  

Part of our mission is to always provide less expensive or free basketball camps and training for those that want to learn.  Through fundraising and donations we are able to provide monthly camps at no charge.  Using donation funds to pay for gym time and equipment fees.  

We are now providing our youth players the opportunity to play against some of the best competition in Michigan.  Our Monroe Elite travel program includes boys and girls from the 4th – 8th grade. Our Monroe Elite AAU program offers high-level, quality training through team practices and individual skills and training.  Our coaches are dedicated to improving youth development, game awareness, fundamentals, & team sportsmanship.  

In Partnership w/ Legacy Center Michigan
