Halo Hoops Excel Travel Team

The Halo Excel Travel Team Program develops young people of excellence through advanced basketball competition.  Players learn advanced skills and strategies, face tough competition and learn to play with a Christian perspective.   Playing on an Excel team is great preparation for high school basketball.  Excel players gain a sense of community and personal responsibility, while being encouraged to excel as leaders both on and off the court.
