Established in 2010, the east texas elite basketball is a non profit select basketball club. the east texas elite is also a volunteer organization which offer boys and girls the opportunity too compete in local regional and national tournaments. we are aware that alcohol and drugs use is increasing among our youth, in this county,and the east texas elite with a unified approach along with community leaders can reduce these factors; that put our youth at risk for substance abuse. there need to be some boundries in place that will discourage our youth for wanting to do drugs and alcohol or be in a gang,or gang related activity. thats why we here at the east texas elite are striving to educate our you through our basketball program. we are trying our best to help the youth in our neighborhoods and throughout our community, most of these children are from broken homes, living in single parented homes, some are living in an enviorment where the parents or guardian maybe on drugs or even locked up! this generation of children, the fatherless generation will one day be making decisions that will shape or break our community.WE ARE SIMPLY DOING OUR BEST !
