Ali Allouche, a one-time Burke player and current WT Woodson junior, is currently undergoing bone cancer treatment. Ali is the big brother of Silas, a current 8th grade Burke travel player. To honor and encourage Ali's battle with cancer, all three boys eighth grade travel teams have dedicated their seasons to Ali. The Washington Wizards donated items to Ali, to include a signed ball as well as another ball that was signed by all three eighth grade teams.

Burke Basketball will be working with Evolution Basketball Training this winter to provide Advanced Skills Clinics for our house league players in 5th-8th grades (boys & girls). We are extremely excited to be working with Evolution as they are one of the top training programs in the country and they are located right here in our area! The Clinic will work on refining basic skills (ball handling, passing, etc), but the main focus will be on building more advanced skills such as:
1 on 1 skills & triple threat
Finishing at the rim
How individual skills fit into team play
And much more!
We will be offering 2 sessions of the Advanced Skills Clinics for you to take advantage of.
