Please pay for Indoor Sessions prior to attending and make sure to RSVP to Coach Mike as this is a first come/first serve basis and each workout will be limited to a maximum of 12 players. Please bring your own ball and a mask.
Due to The Covid Pandemic, The Escalades are doing a different type of Fall/Winter Season. Health and Safety is our number one priority but that doesn't mean we can't start to workout in a controlled environment.
We will hold limited capacity indoor and outdoor workouts and play in some tournaments and leagues based on availability and locations.
Please feel free to contact us with any questions you may have and we look forward to progressing until we can get back to some sort of normalcy.
Please stay safe and see you on the court..
The East Side Escalades are one of the premier travel/AAU basketball programs in NYC. We have girls and boys competitive basketball programs for ages 8 to 17.
Our practices emphasize Basketball IQ Defensively and Offensively and individual skill work.
The factor that differentiates us from other programs is that every team runs a progressive system that gets more complicated as the teams get older. No one player is the focus, we about about ball movement and team play We are truly playing positionless basketball
On the defensive side our default defense is Man to man. We believe that all players need to learn Man to Man principles long before any Zone defense is introduced. We let the school teams introduce zone to our players.
Our boys and girls fill the ranks of High School and College rosters. The disciplined play we teach travels and most players do very well in their school programs.
Our program Director has more than 20 years of experience and we hand pick our coaches to make sure they will stay true to playing the right way.
