Year Round Plan - 2018/2019
The goal of the GPP program is to create a year round home for our basketball athletes to develop their basketball skills, sports performance, conditioning, prepare players for middle school ball, gain exposure during their high school years to college programs, and have fun in a great TEAM environment. The Pacers Athletic Center, which will serve as home to Grand Park Premier, is currently working with the Jr. NBA and USA Basketball, keeping us directly tied in to the best practices and direction of youth basketball around the world.
Below is an outline that shows our plans for year-round programming, beginning in August of 2018.
