Youth Tryouts

Our high school teams are fully funded through Nike, sponsors, and outside donors.

The NJ Scholars Elite Youth Basketball includes regionally and nationally competitive 6th through 8th-grade teams.  The program focuses not only on basketball but academic achievement and support, civic engagement, financial literacy, and emotional health programs to help prepare them to succeed and grow to meet their true and desired potential. 


In terms of basketball, the middle school teams are focused on maximizing skill development, competitive IQ, and mindset and exposure. The success of this approach is evidenced by the organization's background. The predecessor organization was originally founded in 2007 as the KSK Youth Basketball Club and achieved prominence by becoming a mainstay in the NJ community and winning national recognition with many of its middle school and younger programs.

“NEVER SAY NEVER because limits, like fears, are often illusions.”
