Phuture Phantom Youth Basketball


Phuture Phantoms Youth basketball (PPYB) is a brand new Phoenixville program beginning in the spring/summer of 2017. PPYB is a non-profit, fee-based travel basketball program exclusively for boys in grades 3rd through 8th who live or go to school in the Phoenixville Area School District. The mission is to bring young Phoenixville players together in one unified program devoted to teaching the fundamentals of the game while developing the skills necessary to compete at every level.

We will have two seasons in 2017: a Summer season playing in the Episcopal Summer League held at Episcopal High School ( from early June to late July; and a Winter season playing in the ICBA Winter League ( from December through March.

2 Tryouts for each grade level team for the Summer season will be held on the following dates and times at the gym identified. While we prefer that interested boys attend both tryouts, it is not a prerequisite to being selected for a team. The grade indicated is the grade to be entered in the fall of 2017 (Note that separate tryouts for the winter season will be held in late fall):

We expect to select 10-12 players for each team’s summer season and anticipate the summer fee will be approximately $110.
