About Carolina Basketball Club
The mission of the Carolina Basketball Club (formerly Phoenix South Basketball) is to provide the area's top student-athletes with a year round opportunity to develop advanced fundamental basketball skills and to grow into accomplished, self confident basketball players and responsible young adults.
Our goal is to develop basketball players who are actively recruited by college coaches from Division 1, 2 and 3.
Development is one of the most important concepts that we undertake in our program. We will take the word "development" and give it special meaning. Not only will we teach you fundamental basketball skills for your development, but we will go one step further -- we will teach you life lessons that will build upon the foundation of your character and further develop you to succeed in your life.
The Directors and Coaches strive to provide the student-athletes with a highly disciplined, focused, competitive, and fun-filled environment in which players learn the value of setting goals, working hard and achieving. The vigorous and fair coaching style is founded on constructive criticism and praise and is most effective in instruction as well as preparation for college coaching styles.
The coaches value and respect each player and take an interest in the player's development in basketball and as a person. The coaches expect several characteristics from players, including effort, commitment to attend practice and games, and utmost respect for coaches, referees, parents, teammates and themselves.
The parents should encourage and respect the development of their student-athletes and teammates as well as the coaches' efforts to teach the players. Parents and players will be expected to participate in fundraising to defray team expenses. Players, parents and coaches must exhibit good sportsmanship towards one another, opposing teams and the referees as per the National AAU Guidelines.
Carolina Basketball Club (formerly Phoenix South) was founded in 2006. The organization was created with an agreement between Delaney Rudd and Vince Jacobs. In 2010 CBC dropped the Phoenix South Brand and officially changed its name to Carolina Basketball Club (CBC). The CBC name change process was completed the end of 2011. The new CBC organization is not part of Team Phoenix or Lady Phoenix, but CBC still works closely with Delaney Rudd and Lady Phoenix. Carolina Basketball Club is now one of the largest AAU Clubs in the Southeast with over 40 Teams. The CBC Leadership Team includes: Coach Vince Jacobs (President/Founder) - Sam Hinnant (VP, Boys Division) - Dennis Covington (VP, Operations) - Tommye Staton (Director, Staffing/Concessions).
