Erie Basketball AAU Travel Teams



A&K Skill Development is excited to commence our second competitive travel basketball season. Our team “A&K Select” will feature some of the top 9th grade and 10th talent.  Our program is unique to others based on the knowledge and playing experiences of our coaches. A&K Select was created to give players a transformative basketball experience. The practices, games, and coaching will aid each participant in strengthening their skills and ultimately successfully showcasing their talent.  

Since our program is dedicated to player improvement, A&K Select requires all team members to attend MANDATORY practices at least twice a week each week for the duration of the season. The presence of each team member helps establish team chemistry and sets the foundation for familial culture. All A&K Select members will be challenged to push their mental and physical capacities. This is coaches included. Why? Because we are a family:

 “Family isn’t always blood. It’s the people in your life who want you to be the best version of you; the ones who accept you for who you are and inspire you to be great.”

Players and parents joining this organization will understand that teamwork, perseverance, and hard work will be the goal while wins will be the outcome.
