BOYS ELITE NATIONAL 14U-17U (8th-12th Grade)



New players get to experience a taste of the Full Package culture right away, because we combine “tryouts” with our current players and teams that are finishing up the previous season.  It’s an exciting, challenging and rewarding way for your player and Full Package to “meet”. It is also a great way for our coaches to observe the unique strengths and challenges of your young player.

Experienced Coaching Staff:

Our coaching team currently trains players at all levels and ages from professionals, advanced, intermediate and beginning players.  Every player is important to us.  Our club doesn’t stop at basketball, we pay attention to every player as a person, and intentionally build character to prepare players to be successful teammates and influential leaders. Over the years we have seen many of our players work really hard to become tremendous high school, college and professional players.  We recognize that while we play a part, the driving force of success is in the heart and work ethic of the player.  

What to Expect at Tryouts:

Practices begin with fun, fast paced, skill-focused segments that are easy for new players to catch onto.  After significant time focused on individual skills and team principles, we typically end our practices scrimmaging so that players can try to use their growing skills in live game situations!

*When your child is experiencing something new, our players are quick to pull them in, support and to ensure they are incorporated into the group.  We are a family that loves to have new members.


Full Package emphasis is on training and whole player development. Basketball is such a beautiful sport. You can get better individually and as a team. This is why most of our practices are spent working on individual and team skill development, conditioning, defense, transitions, and always ends up with any kind of game play from 1on1 to 5on5. So in addition to regular time and practices, we always have additional training during the week and on weekends! Steve Pratt and Dmitry Pirshin are known as excellent shooting coaches working with players of all skill levels - the newest players to those at the highest professional levels.

Spread the word!

Our focus is on building a culture that uses basketball as a tool to train youth to be better at the game and as people.  We count on word of mouth to build our business.  Please help spread the word!  

We appreciate your trust! Thank you. Hopefully we will see you upcoming season.

Full Package Athletics is a family oriented basketball club, focused on personal development of players.   Full Package Athletics includes camps, clinics and training programs designed to allow each player to reach his/her personal goals and contribute to their teams and their communities.  And learn how to be a high functioning teammate that encourages others, while competing at their level.

The mission of Full Package is to create a better tomorrow by inspiring its youth athletes to shoot for excellence in all endeavors, to use their talents for the greater good, and to follow their dreams. Full Package is committed to developing all facets of its student athletes – using basketball and team skills to create leaders —who not only understand the value of hard work and teamwork but also giving back to the community.


Steve Pratt founded Full Package Athletics in September 2000, offering classes and basketball lessons at the Highwood Recreation Center. News traveled quickly about his ability to train basketball players in both individual and team skills effectively. In the winter he was invited to use facilities at the nearby Bannockburn Club for practices and training sessions, and the Full Package Athletics program was firmly established. Full Package was born on a foundation of finding the potential in all players and building confidence by helping every individual develop through the game of basketball. This philosophy is the backbone of our program and remains apparent today throughout the dedicated coaching of all our travel teams, leagues, and training programs.
