The Original Germantown Hardknocks Basketball program

Please be advise that there's only one successful and elite AAU Boys Basketball program that has represented the Germantown community for 8 strong years and prepared players for Middle and High School and College basketball and that's Germantown Hardknocks Youth Foundation. I have received several calls about another Germantown team and THEIR NOT WITH THE Hardknocks. WE HAVE NOT CHANGED OUR NAME. Germantown Hardknocks is not affiliated with any other basketball program. If you're interested in learning strong fundamentals and getting National experience and exposure by qualifed coaches then look no further. You can check back at this website for more information or contact Coach Hall about Germantown Hardknocks.
