WHAT: 

The Missouri Magic Elite program is in the process of forming spring and summer elite travel teams to compete in events in Missouri, Kansas, and Illinois this spring, and in major events in Missouri, Nebraska, Iowa, Ohio, Tennessee and Illinois this summer.

·         Two 9-player teams will be formed at each age group, one in each half of the state.  If only one team is formed at an age group, practice and schedule will be dictated by dominant numbers from East or West and location of coach.

·         Rising Stars squads will be developed at all age levels in the spring and summer, and across East West and South Missouri Regions.

·         An All-Missouri Elite squad, representing the 9-best players at each age group (14U through 17U) will be developed in the summer and will play in a slightly different schedule, including up to three major exposure events.

·         Opportunities for college exposure and evaluation of player skills and recruit-ability will be offered in the fall and in the spring.

·         Lower grade teams are designed to be developmental but play an advanced level of competition.  Upper age teams are designed to be competitive in both spring and summer sessions.

WHO IS ELIGIBLE:

·         Note age-groups above --- These reflect current 2009-2010 grade years --- current grade level (12U = 6th grade, etc.) is the criteria for age placement.

·         Boys age groups are 12U through 17U, Girls age groups are 14U and 16-17U.

HOW THE PROGRAM WORKS:

·         Coaches are hired from high school and middle school staffs, current established AAU and travel coaches, and college athletes pursuing education degrees are recruited to coach.  Interested coaches should contact Mark at the number listed above to learn about these employment opportunities.

·         Uniform offensive and defensive strategies are provided from the Director and coaches are clinic-ed in how to teach and deliver the “Magic System”.  Included are the Memphis Dribble-Drive against man to man and zone, Virginia Tech and Arizona 1-3-1 match-up sets,  talking, helping man-to-man defense, and an up-tempo transition game.  Players will receive advanced instruction and state-of-the art basketball preparation.

·         Practices are limited to the “kick-off” two weekends of the tournament due to the spread out nature of the players and coaches --- some additional practice can be scheduled if coach and players agree it is needed.
