TEAM 907 MISSION STATEMENT  

Team 907 focuses on helping Alaskan Student-Athlete basketball players gain national exposure in hopes of obtaining a college basketball/academic scholarship to compete at the next level.  Recruiting can be a challenging task coming from Alaska.  The lack of exposure at a national level and not having the right connections can be a huge obstacle living in Alaska.  The bottom line is without being on a college coach’s recruiting radar, there is NO EXPOSURE.  College coaches also need to physically attend and watch Summer basketball events. Alaskan Student-Athletes have to market themselves via contact or internet exposure. 

Our main focal point is not on winning a national tournament, but to help market our players and get them playing in front of college coaches.  Most college coaches don’t recruit summer teams, they recruit summer players. 
All of our national summer basketball events are sanctioned by the NCAA and are well attended by various college coaches; Division 1, Division 2, Division 3, NAIA, Junior Colleges, etc.  The events are also scheduled during the NCAA allotted viewing period in July.  Any event that is not sanctioned by the NCAA during the viewing period does not allow any D1 or D2 college coaches to attend.  Our past Team 907 Summer events and games have been well attended by many college coaches from various programs.

Team 907 DOES NOT guarantee that your son will get a basketball opportunity after the trip.  We do guarantee that every participant will have an opportunity to play in front of college coaches every game.  We believe in equal opportunity and with that being said everyone plays on a rotation system for the first half.  Bottom line, Parents, if you are spending the money to get exposure for your son, they need to be on the court sometime during the game.  Team 907 will also market your son’s profile for FREE to various college programs via website and internet.  This can be a very costly and time consuming.  In addition, college coaches will have the freedom at anytime to obtain your son’s online profile through our website, at NO EXTRA COST to you or the college coaches. 

One of the most valuable parts of our trip is a week-long session of high intensity and professional basketball training at the Impact Basketball Academy in Las Vegas, Nevada (Website:
http://www.impactbball.com)  The Impact training session is not during the NCAA viewing period, but is well worth the training.  The Impact Basketball Academy is for the serious basketball player that wants to train at a high level.  During our training session, there will be about 30 to 40 NBA and current college basketball players that attend daily to train at the academy while we are there.  A former Alaskan, Devon Bookert (West High School – Class of 2011) attend their Prep Academy for a year and is now playing at Florida State.  In addition quite a few college players are training and preparing for the NBA draft or their upcoming college season. 

This trip is a great opportunity to show your son what it takes to prepare, train, and compete for the next level.  Team 907 has a very selective process; invitations are granted based on attitude, academics, community reputation, potential, recommendation, and skills.  Every Team 907 alumni has grown after each trip and seen what it takes to play at the next level. They come back better prepared and mature for their upcoming high school season.  Our Team 907 Alaska Alumni includes many All State and All Conference candidates, please see our list of Team 907 Graduates.

Good luck to everyone on your future basketball endeavors.

Coach Jim Young
