Club Elite Basketball Academy, along with Advanced Sports Training Institute (ASTI), proudly presents the Next Level Player Development Program(NLPDP). This annual long program is dedicated to preparing a selective group of seriously committed youth basketball players who are willing to make the sacrifice to become better basketball players. 




The Next Level Player Development Program (NLPDP) is an AAU based basketball club designed to focus and concentrate on the overall aspect of the player’s game. Through a pre-season and in-season multi-phased teaching approach that focuses on skill development, player evaluations, and a rigorous competition schedule and instruction that will translate to the next level of basketball. Training development will begin with athletic performance training followed by ball-handling, shooting, game situation instruction to develop court awareness and increase efficiency. 


All players in the NLPDP will be asked to commit to playing and participation solely in the NLPDP program all year (one club all year) not mandatory but highly recommended in order to consistently develop all skills that will be necessary to play basketball at the next level.   




.The goal for every player is to complete the program more skilled, stronger, faster and a higher basketball IQ.

  • Game situation instruction to develop court awareness and increase efficiency. During the year, the NLPDP will participate in a game competition (scrimmages), tournaments and competitive events to gain the highest level of playing experience, against teams of elite skill levels to test and help improve the player’s game. 

  • The NLPDP will teach players the importance of hard work in a practice setting, as well as instilling a passion for the game in each of our players and a willingness to improve their skills. 

  • All players will learn through no pigeonhole position training. This performance training is to develop and improve functional strength, speed, quickness, and explosive power and injury-prevention. 

  • All players will be taught all of the skills on the court regardless of size, this will build mental discipline, player confidence, superior focus, game preparation, and a game-ready attitude. 


All performance training will be conducted by Advanced Sports Training Institute (ASTI) led by the legendary coach, director, and owner, Anthony Eggleton also known as “Coach Ant”. Anthony Eggleton has been training High School and College level athletes for the past 30 years.
