Quaker Valley Girls Basketball believes in supporting the growth, and development of our girls, both as athletes and individuals. We have strong relationships with local AAU programs that will help teach both basketball and life lessons. AAU is a broad landscape that can be quite overwhelming, so through our network of parents, alumni, and coaches, we have found programs at all levels of engagement that emphasize the women's game and provide a positive environment for our players. We strongly recommend that the player and parent attend at least 1 workout or tryout with multiple organizations to get a "feel" and find a home.
Non-team time is when you work to improve your individual skill level. In season team practices are spent in team concepts, offensive philosophies, defenses, and situational team-centric drills and exercises. We have collected the information for some of the best individual instructors in the Pittsburgh area, for those interested in improving their game, and reaching their highest level of success. As they say "Some dream of success, others wake up and work hard at it".
Being a better athlete, helps you become a better player. Developing healthy habits, translates into better life long health. Here are some reputable options that have a proven track record within our program.
