Founded in 2008 Virginia Elite was established to fill the void to provide student athletes in Northern Virginia an opportunity to showcase their athletic talents. Although they have been many successful basketball players from the area, there still was not a grassroots basketball program that was focused on competing at a national competition level and creating a platform for their players to gain national exposure. With a growing population in Northern Virginia the immediate goals was to develop a program that attracted the top athletes in the area and then expand the brand into the Washington, D.C., Maryland, West Virginia and other parts of Virginia. Our mission is to compete in the best basketball sporting events, compete against the best programs in the country and for our players to have the capability to not only compete against those players on the national level but more importantly have an opportunity to expand their careers beyond high school. We stress the importance of the Student Athlete. Although basketball is an intricate part of our grassroots program we pride ourselves on standing by our athletes and creating a platform for excellence. Our programs charter is characterized by our coaches, parents and each player in our program. Our continuous player development program emphasizes an appreciation of teamwork, commitment, and personal success. Through the development of a strong work ethic, commitment to team, and personal successes our program aims to prepare each participant for success on the court, in the classroom, and for the ever changing challenges of life.
