Alumni History - Striving for Excellence

The Legacy of Virginia Elite Alumni goes far beyond the hardwood. Since the inception of the program, players have not only made an impact on the college level but many of them have achieved extraordinary accomplishments in high school.

Established in 2008 the mission was to create a elite basketball program that identified, developed and mature student-athletes to complete on a national level. Based in Northern Virginia (Suburbs of Washington, D.C.) Virginia Elite has exceeded expectations of providing players an opportunity to complete in high level youth and high school national grassroots events, with these opportunities many of the players received opportunities to further their athletic and academic careers beyond high school. 

Our consistent history of providing college level players started from the inception of the program to the current list of players. Many of these young men have performed on the national collegiate stage playing on national televised games to playing in many notable collegiate NCAA tournaments.
