About The Scoring Factory
Upon retiring from playing nine seasons in the European Leagues, Pete Strobl recognized a need for advanced skills training in Pittsburgh. He founded The Scoring Factory in 2009 as an answer to that demand. Our first home was the historic Market House on Pittsburgh’s eclectic South Side before spending several years based in the historic fifth floor gymnasium of the PAA in Oakland. Since outgrowing that space, The Scoring Factory now operates in numerous gyms around Pittsburgh with multiple satellite locations.
The coaching team has grown to include experts in all facets of basketball with a focus on fundamentals, skills and details. Over the years our alumni have played their way to successful high school, college and pro careers, making The Scoring Factory a destination to agents and recruiters at the international level.
Why The Scoring Factory?
From the ACC to the Big 10 to the WAC, The Scoring Factory has worked with student-athletes from virtually every division 1 conference in the NCAA. At the professional level, The Scoring Factory alumni have competed in twenty-five countries all over the world.
What Parents Say
Thank you so much for this wonderful experience. My son reallys enjoys playing with The Scoring Factory and the coaches are doing a great job!
We are so lucky to have found The Scoring Factory and my kids will be with you for a long time! The Academy has helped both of them improve their game. I really admire the way every child feels supported and important.
These sessions are exactly what my daughter needed. She loves to play, but didn’t always want to work on her skills… until now! The coaches are nice, but push the players and make them focus on details.
What I love best is how they teach players to incorporate the skills they teach into practice routines and games. The coaches are always positive, encouraging and enthusiastic.
Each session is complemented with life lessons where players learn respect, work ethic, team work, goal setting and positive self-esteem. They truly care that each person excels to their best level as an athlete and a person.
I cannot overstate the value in the lessons that The Scoring Factory coaches have provided. We have seen my son go from an average player, with average fundamental skills to a starter on the “A” team at his school.
The Scoring Factory focuses on each player’s individual needs and abilities, and they are astutely aware of how to approach training according to their personalities in order to make each session a successful experience.
The Scoring Factory is proud to support our community and takes great pride in helping good causes of all shapes and sizes.
