BIDDY BALL (Grades K-1)
Biddy Ball is designed for our youngest players. Players in grades K-1 participate in our Biddy Ball program. Biddy Ball is run by William Penn Middle School head coach and Dave Costanzo.
Biddy Ball takes place on Monday nights for one hour between 6 and 8pm. Starting the first week in December, the boys will participate in high energy, super fun clinic style workouts with the goal of teaching the girls the fundamental skills they will need to play in a real basketball game. As the boys progress through the weeks, they are introduced to their coach and their teammates and we do less skill work, gradually getting the boys into some of the cutest 3 on 3 and 4 on 4 basketball games you've ever seen. We should sell tickets. Friends and grandparents should have their cameras ready.
Recreational In House League (Grades 2-12)
Players of all ages and skill levels are welcome in our Rec In House League. Teams will be split up with the focus on competitive balance, given gym time for practice, and then play games on the weekend.
Our league hosts games from November to March and includes one practice (one hour) per week and one game on the weekend.
Coaches will be supported in our league. Please see the What Makes Us Different Tab for more information on how we support and communicate with our coaches.
Travel Basketball (Grades 3-8)
Falcons Elite offers the travel basketball experience for students between the grades of 3rd and 8th.

In Season Clinics
Falcons Elite Hoops is dedicated to developing players in the local community. In order to do this we will be providing free clinics throughout the season for both players and coaches.
Pre-Season Clinics- This is a chance for players and coaches to come out and meet the FE' Team and learn some of our coaching styles. Pre-Season clinics will focus on the basic skills , teaching structure and form of games, as well as touch on rules of the game players can expect. Players will also be evaluated at these clinics to ensure competitive balance of our Rec teams is reached before problems arise.
Holiday Clinics- We will also be offering clinics over the holiday break throughout the year. Looking for something to do on that third Monday in November? Join us for a fun clinic to get up and move in the gym with your teammates. Dates subject to change due to gym availability.
Out of Season Skill Training
The best time to improve your game is in the offseason. The Falcons Elite Board, staffed with some of the best basketball minds in Bucks County, is proud to offer individual and group skill training in the offseason. Skill sessions will focus on developing a higher level of skill and understanding. These sessions will be made available to all interested at the end of the season.
JACK PEPPER MEMORIAL 3 V 3 TOURNAMENT
Jack Pepper was one of the all time great basketball players in the history of not only Pennsbury Basketball, but of Bucks County as a whole. A 1980 graduate, Pepper left Pennsbury as the school's all time leading scorer. The stories of Jack Pepper's abilities and accomplishments became legend around the area. Many who saw him play considered him the best all around athlete they had ever seen in person. However, if you were to ask Jack what his greatest accomplishment in life was, he would tell you that it was his wife Cheryl and his three boys, Dalton, Brandon, and Shawn. Jack loved his family and loved being a father to his boys (who were all accomplished athletes in their own right) and was present at every sporting event from their youth, all the way through their college days. Sadly, Jack Pepper succumbed to cancer in December of 2020. In Jack's memory, Falcons Elite and Lady Falcons Elite have organized the "Jack Pepper Classic." Both organizations will donate the proceeds of the 3v3 Tournament to the American Cancer Society. We hope that through this event we can honor a great man and our Pennsbury community can do its part in finding a cure for this terrible disease.
