Wilmington's longest running travel basketball organization

For 11 years the Wilmington Excel Travel Team Program has developed 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.
