For 12 years the Wilmington Excel Travel Program has developed young people of excellence through advanced basketball competition. Players learn advanced skills and strategies, face tough competition and learn to play with a Christian perspective. Playing on a Wilmington Excel team is great preparation for high school basketball.
We are excited to announce that another Great Travel Basketball Organization in the Wilmington area has merged with us here at Wilmington Excel. We are pleased to welcome Port City Select Basketball to the Wilmington Excel Family. The PCS Board brings tremendous experience, great staff, experienced coaches, and many excellent players.
We think this merger will help make Wilmington Excel, the Top Travel Basketball outlet for Wilmington and the surrounding areas.
Wilmington Excel coaches are experienced volunteer coaches with a strong commitment to young players and their families. They meet periodically throughout the year to continue growing as leaders and develop the program.
The season runs from March through June. Teams practice 1-2 times a week at a local gym and play in tournaments 2-3 times a month. Tournaments typically consist of pool play on Saturday and bracket play on Sunday.
The participation fee is $300-$400 per player and includes the cost of a shooting shirt, tournament fees, insurance and practice facility rentals. Financial assistance is available to those in need.
Excel parents make a commitment to support their child as well as the coaching staff and players of their team according to program guidelines.
Excel players commit to attending practices and tournaments on a consistent basis. Therefore, they’re not allowed to play on other basketball travel teams. Academically, Excel players are required to maintain a minimum 2.5 GPA.
