Travel Team Profile: Tampa Bay Knights

We got a chance to watch the Tampa Bay Knights organization.   8th to 11th grade teams make up the Knights.  With a Travel Team player frenzy starting, the knights look to be competitive. 

The Knights stand by the words Faith, Loyalty, Courage and Honor by providing with the knowledge of the game and the tools to take it to another level.  TBK as excepted the challenge of creating a competitive atmosphere to help breath more life into the basketball scene in Tampa Bay.  The Coaches at TBK are dedicated to do what is needed to be successful.(Coaches:  Darron Wicks, Jamal Hill, Vince Hyatt, Breon Jennings, Myrick McRae and Coach Neal)

Tampa Bay Knights

Coming from an area known for basketball (Hampton,VA), Darron Wicks knows what it takes to become a better athlete.  Darron Wicks who guides the organization is prepared to do whatever it takes to get kids to the next level.  When asked what separates his organization from others he stated, “First is the focus on skills development year round and we offer skills/drills training and plyometric training during the season and off season.  Second, we’re not in it to make a name for ourselves or to make money but in it to give these young men an opportunity to get a free education and continue playing the game they love.”

Look out for the Knights!
