Evolution Basketball Training is off to a strong start in 2019! This year, like many in the past, its players are having an incredible amount of success throughout this high school season. Some of the major highlights include eight Evolution players leading the DMV in scoring, eight of their seniors having already committed to college (to include two going ACC and two going Ivy League). To top it off, seven Evolution players have hit the 1,000 point mark in their high school careers over the past few weeks.

With a “players first approach” to training, Evolution ensures that each of their players are getting the attention and specific development needed to find their individual success. This approach is one of the major factors for why their players continue to lead Northern VA year after year. Evolution’s President & Founder Alex Harris believes that, “with the model we’ve created, we are focused on the right things and when it’s all about the success of our players we all succeed together.”

Having recently celebrated its 10 year anniversary this past May, Evolution is deeply rooted in the Northern VA community. Evolution’s origins were in the Fairfax area, but with recent growth it is now located in Fairfax County, Loudoun County, and Prince William County. With three full-time facilities (Merrifield, Ashburn, and Gainesville) Evolution has a location close to virtually every player in the area. This April Evolution will be opening its fourth location in Chantilly at the Chantilly Fieldhouse where it will be able to reach even more local players. “Having our own facilities is a major difference maker,” says Doug Howard, Vice President of Evolution. “Being able to provide consistent training for our players make us stand out amongst any of our competition.”

See you in the gym!

With another wave of talented younger players in the freshman and sophomore classes, as well as their middle school talent, it appears that Evolution’s players will continue to highlight the Northern VA area for years to come. As they continue to grow with their new Gainesville and Chantilly facilities, Evolution will undoubtedly provide even more opportunity for more players across our region.
