Accelerated skill development through extraordinary instruction, intense competition and the desire to excel.
Foster a positive environment that promotes team chemistry, respect, accountability and hard work while enhancing basketball IQ.
To be the world’s leading basketball academy for skill development and organized game play.
The Scoring Factory is excited to announce Evaluations 2017 for Season 2 of our Youth Development Academy for boys and girls in grades 2nd through 7th. Our superior coaching techniques will be available on a broader scale.
We are building a true club structure with a built-in support system encompassing all aspects of player development, exposure and recruiting assistance under one umbrella. Our Academy vigorously promotes individual growth within a team environment, creating versatile and complete basketball players. We employ a specialized teaching curriculum including classroom components incorporating aspects of the renowned European methodology. Our objective is long-term development and creating a brighter future for Pittsburgh’s basketball landscape.
“They (Europeans) spend all that time on shooting and passing and dribbling and fundamentals and playing together.”
— Greg Popovich, NBA San Antonio Spurs
Academy players are exposed to professional instruction through consistent and intense practices and scrimmages. Teams will compete in local games as well as enter local AAU tournaments. The Academy will focus on skill development, hard-nosed defense and the construction of a broad basketball IQ. Short-term wins are not our goal and there will be no pressure to win at all costs. There are no shortcuts to excellence! Our long-term strategy is to build toward properly prepared older age groups who can then travel the country to gain exposure against elite competition.
“I just think European players are just way more skillful. They are just taught the game the right way at an early age.”
— Kobe Bryant, NBA L.A. Lakers
Evaluations are open to players of all abilities as we build a true club program. Chemistry, attitude and desire will be prized components of every player from every team. Those who invest in their child’s future now, will be rewarded with a fully developed basketball player.
“We want to help Pittsburgh receive more college scholarships than ever before and put players in a position to reach their dreams.”
— Pete Strobl, Founder of The Scoring Factory
