Teach The Game – Middle and High School Academy Program.

Our academy tournament team returns in April of 2020.  There will be one (maybe two) teams at the 5th/6th and 7th/8th grade level.  There is also a high school grade level team. The team(s) will be coached by Brian Robinson. Laurie Mulqueeny (and others) will help coach during the season (in case both teams play at the same time). Right now, there will be a limit of ten players for each season, however, if the demand is there, a separate 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th grade team will be fielded.

Please understand that Coach R does work for USA Basketball (LINK HERE) so from time to time he is asked to run or speak at a national camp or clinic which may cause the academy schedule to change.

There will be three separate seasons with three separate registrations (with a discount if you register for all three at once and another discount for registering for two seasons).  There will be an April – May season, a June – July season and a August – September season.

The team will play in three tournaments each season and practices will be held on Fridays (with maybe a weekend here or there) so as not to conflict with travel team scheduling. Tournaments will be scheduled around the travel team season.  The practice schedule and tournament schedule will be posted here soon.

Please note that the 5th/6th grade teams will play locally (in the Triad area) and not travel as much (if at all).  That team’s schedule will be posted soon.

Practice schedule:

  • Fridays beginning in late March

Tournament schedule:

  • April 4: Roanoke, Virginia (high school and middle school)
  • May 2: Virginia Beach or Richmond, VA (high school and middle school)
  • June 6: Charlotte, NC (high school and middle school)

* = Coach Robinson is out of town July 14-19 and again on July 24-26. Our W-S Stealers Travel Teams are out of town July 10-12 and then again July 20-23 or July 24-27.  We will not play on July 4th This limits the number of weekends available in July.

The cost to play PER SEASON is $150.00.  If you register for two seasons, the cost will be $285.00.  If you register for all three seasons, the cost will be $400.00.  If you are interested in bundling the seasonal tournament program with individual and group skills and basketball camps, please visit the “TTG Seasonal Programs” page here: LINK

There will be a limit of ten players per team.  This is a Teach The Game program (not a Stealers program game so this will NOT fall under Stealers For Life).

TTG 5th-6th and 7th-8th Grade 2020 Academy Team


The Teach The Game Academy HIGH SCHOOL REGIONAL Team will run from April 2020 – September 2020.   The REGIONAL team is for high school grade players who would like to play additional games in between their Winston-Salem Stealers travel team tournament games. High school age / grade meaning the participants are in high school during the spring of 2020.

The REGIONAL team will play one tournament per month.  There MAY be one college exposure tournament in July so the team members will need to go through the NCAA / BBCS registration process.

The team uniforms have been sponsored by Teach The Game so the cost of registration is to pay for practice space and the tournaments. There will be an initial limit of ten (10) players for the REGIONAL team.

The REGIONAL TEAM tournament schedule is as follows (all tournaments are subject to change):

  • April 4: Roanoke, Virginia
  • May 2: Virginia Beach or Richmond, VA
  • June 6: Charlotte, NC
  • July 6-7 or July 27-28 – EXPOSURE EVENT
  • August: 1-2: TBA
  • September: 19-20: TBA

REGIONAL TEAM tournaments will be played in North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia and Florida (in July).

THERE WILL ALSO BE A LOCAL HIGH SCHOOL TEAM. 

The high school local team will have a roster of ten (10) players and will play just three tournaments from March – June. The team will play:

  • March 28
  • May 30
  • June 6 (or 13)
