Carolina Elite was founded to help young men and women become aware of their potential in becoming leaders, team players, and influential role models on and off the courts through the evangelical tool of competitive basketball. Coaching / Mentoring kids on AAU basketball teams - Our volunteer coaches spend 100+ days each year with small groups of kids teaching, training, and preparing them for competition. These same skills are used at many areas in life to achieve goals and to become successful citizens in our society. Community Outreach - Our athletes participate in numerous community outreach projects across the state. Some of these programs include feeding the homeless, hosting food and clothes drives for local Urban Ministries, visiting kids fighting severe sickness in care centers, providing Christmas gifts for under resourced families, and more. We seek to impact families within Raleigh/Durham/Greenville NC and outlying areas thereof in multiple environments including local and national travel basketball teams, community leagues, after school programs, community service projects, and neighbor to neighbor opportunities.
