This program is designed for skilled players, serious about developing their game and seeking a higher level of competition.
Burke's Select coaches are selected by the Burke Basketball Board after thorough evaluation and are asked to coach a minimum of 2 consecutive years, likely starting with 5th grade. Burke coaches are asked to maintain a welcoming relationship with local high school programs.
Skills training can cost up to $400 per month per child or $15-$25 per session. Burke Basketball increased Select base fees by $40 per player, which is less than $3 per training session!
