The Alumni League

Bringing Back Competitive Spirit

Welcome To The Alumni League

The Alumni League kicked off October 7, and is taking the Philadelphia Basketball circuit by storm in it's first season of operation, focusing on Philadelphia's competitive basketball rivalry, including old friendships, alliances, and rivalries. The league is comprised of teams of alumni from Philadelphia area high schools, harking back to the 80s ad 90s. Rivalry has been fierce. Pro-players and ex-NBA players are among the competitors. 

ABOUT US

The Alumni League headed up by Fahreed Cheatham, was created with a vision to continue the rich tradition of basketball competition for players 30+ in the Philadelphia region.

There is an untapped desire amongst many players, to continue to play at a highly competitive level, without being pro, well into their 30s and even 40s. The Alumni League seeks to fill that void initially in Philadelphia, and next year expand to other East Coast Cities.

SCHOLARSHIPS

The Alumni League were asking for attendees and players at the games to contribute $1 at each game which will go into a pot towards 2 x $500 scholarships for students at the schools of the teams that make the finals. We were intending to achieve goal by end of season, but achieved it in 3 weeks, so we are no longer asking for the dollar each week, however any extra will go towards an additional scholarship. The scholarships will be given to 12th grade students who are members of the Basketball team at the schools, and have been accepted into a colleges. We will be posting a GoFundMe to collect for scholarships going forward.

Look to see he presentations of the scholarships to the kids when we get to the finals.
