Program Profile - Central Bucks Elite
Jeremy Beckett started Central Bucks Elite in 2017 with the main goal of giving his one 9th grade team a platform to keep playing after their high school season and be in a position to play at the college level. From their first year in 2017, Central Bucks Elite has seen tremendous growth in their program, having 10-12 teams in 2021, as well as launching the girls side of the program this spring.
Player development is an excelling factor of the Central Bucks Elite program. Skill development and learning the nuances of basketball are things that are stressed to all their players in practices and workouts. Jeremy and his coaches keep their teams in the gym yearly, always making sure they're doing their part to help improve the players within the program and preparing them for whatever their next step may be.
Jeremy believes that in order to take the program to the next level, they just need to stay on the path they’ve been on the last few years and just reinforce their beliefs and teachings. They want to teach the player’s in the program to play the right the way, master the fundamentals, and really work into the individual skill components on a player by player basis.
As 2021 comes, Jeremy wants to provide more opportunity for the kids to play challenging competition outside of just the PA area. They’re looking forward to getting into other ZG events across the east coast to have their teams play against the best competition that they can.
When thinking back on all of the best moments Jeremy has had so far with Central Bucks Elite, he states how proud he is of all the teams, players, coaches, and parents that were able to make their 2020 season in the summer and fall a reality. There were many sacrifices from the players, coaches, and parents to ensure that the kids were able to play in a safe manner. Jeremy said that this sense of commitment from everyone within the program solidified the direction they are growing in!
As we move into 2021 and the spring season approaches, we couldn’t be more excited to have all the Central Bucks Elite teams playing in our Mid Atlantic events! Jeremy has done a phenomenal job at growing the program, and will continue to improve over the next few years. Zero Gravity is excited to have Central Bucks Elite on the #RoadtoZGFinals in 2021!
