“In basketball, as in life, true joy comes from being fully present in each and every moment, not just when things are going your way”

-Phil Jackson

Building character, building vision and creating confidence each and every time our young people step on a court is only a part of getting them ready for a productive life.

We envision every interaction with our players as teachable moments that reinforce values and discipline. At the end of it all, they’ll understand that being part of something that its bigger than themselves empowers them to be adults with purpose. Lastly, it’s about always doing the right things when no one is watching.

CELEBRATINGOVER 10 YEARS OF SERVICE

When Mid-Michigan Excel began, we did so to create an impact on youth sports within the greater Lansing area. Since that time, the response to our program has been overwhelming and support unsurpassed all attributable to our caring and enthusiastic athletes and their families. The change of our brand to a more contemporary “look and feel” represents an acknowledgement of growth and reality where today’s Excel is a stronger, more engaged and exciting organization than ever before. As we have great plans for enhanced programs and tournaments challenging our young athletes, so to should be our brand in a way  that reflects that energy and passion. We hope that you love our new look and logo as much as we do. We look forward to your continued support of our Club.
