The SoulGentz' Basketball Program is the newest addition to our sports program and will launch in fall, 2021 and will include a 12/17 team in New Jersey and New York City.
Our first season is from October, 2021 to June, 2022. Eligible players must be (or be turning) 10 to 16 within this time period.
The SoulGentz will be registered as a competitive team under the Amateur Athletic Union (AAU), and will be trained to compete on local, regional and national courts. In addition to learning and refining their basketball skills, they will also learn about basketball history and how pursuit of excellence in the game helps their higher educational pursuits and opens up opportunities for long-term careers.
The team requires discipline and a willingness to learn and adapt. It will demand the utmost in respect from players, coaches and staff alike. The young men will be asked to do things that their peer organizations might not do (shirt & tie at basketball games; no cursing; strict rules around attendance and punctuality; fitness routine) and it should be understood that they must confirm to all of our rules in order to participate.
Slots on the team will be secured via tryouts. The coaches will look first to secure their competitive team of twelve players, but might also elect to have an "exhibition" team, which generally includes first-time players.
An application will be required and will be emailed or given to families on their first day. Non-refundable, weekly dues are $25 per player and the team will participate in fundraisers for the organization's general overhead (which includes space rental, supplies, etc.). Dues are payable via CashApp ($SoulPhamm), Venmo (@soulphamm) or PayPal (firstname.lastname@example.org) only). Team members will be responsible for the purchase of their official team uniform (generally $100-$150).
Please note - if you are invited to a tryout and do not show up, or if you try to participate without paying you will be barred from registering from ALL SoulPhamm and affiliate programs in the future. If you do not pay your dues, you will be immediately cut from the team.
To join our mailing list and be notified of tryouts/registration for our next season (2021-2022), please complete the form which can be found under "REGISTER NOW" under the "HOME" tab on this website. Thank you for your interest!
