About

USA Premier Team NetworkThe Premier Team Newtwork is a national organization of youth basketball clubs and event operators.  The intent of the network is to empower regional directors to fulfill their business models and club goals by plugging in to a national brand through cooperation and partnership.

The real power behind the network is the realization that the current grassroots basketball model is broken.  We believe the power of our network is the ethics and commitment to excellence shared by our partners.  Instead of operating in the traditional hierarchy of other organizations, we focus on tapping the knowledge and experience of the people who do this every day on the ground.  Our network is focused first on this principle.

Our goal is to build a national network that is competitive from a talent standpoint of other longstanding organizations but at the same time assist our affiliates in building their brand and business model in their backyard.

We are basketball and player centered.  Organizations that focus on the fundamentals of the game and on operating with ethics are the keys to our mutual success.

We have a national board of directors, all of which have their own organizations and are event operators, and regional directors that work together to build the brand in their areas.

Our affiliation with BSN Sports, the largest team dealer in the country, and Under Armour are indications of our commitment to our shared ideals.

Our programming starts with players in 3rd grade all the way to 11th grade both boys and girls.  The UPBL concept pairs our affiliate organizations in circles of spring events that will lead to the UA Jr. National Championships for youth and boys in June in Murfreesboro, TN.    Our girls grassroots organization holds two events. The Under Armour Nationals, April 29-30 in Cincinnati and The Under Armour Cup July 6-8th in Louisville, KY. The Nationals is open to all teams from 13U-17U while the Cup is a elite invitational event limited to the top 96 teams in our organization.

Our growth is rapid and we are excited about being a part of what we feel is a long awaited solution in grassroots basketball.
