About the Texas Tar Heels

Texas Tar Heels Logo

In 2003, The Texas Tar Heels AAU Select Basketball League began it's winning track record with just one team of first-graders. We have devoted the past 19 years to building up our players both on and off the court. Our select basketball program is known as one of the most respected and successful sports organizations in the region.

  • More than 80% of our high school players have gone on to play college ball.
  • Our alumni include several DI, D2, & D3,  professional overseas, NBA, and several  pending NBA hopefuls!
  • We are equally as proud of some of our alumni who have gone on to pursue careers outside of basketball such as chemical engineering, neuroscience, and even a 2K gaming professional for the Utah Jazz!

We are successful because of our emphasis on player development, team first style of play and dedicated coaching staff.

  • Our program has a strong focus on rock-solid fundamentals. We work with each player to maximize their potential and create opportunities for exposure to college coaches.
  • We also teach the importance of integrity, the value of hard work, and respect for others.
  • Every practice and game ends in team prayer.
  • Our goal is to turn your child’s personal commitment into visible progress.

When your student athlete joins one of our Academy or AAU travel teams, you can expect their individual game to improve as well as learn how to be an important member of a cohesive team. You also become a part of our Texas Tar Heels family!
