East Coast Power is excited for another great season of basketball. As the club grows we continue to expand/improve our operations and processes. This year we have rolled out our Player/Parent Handbook, with a few adjustments from years past. This handbook will provide players and parents what we expect from them and what they should expect from us, please review the handbook linked on the right and reach out to us with any questions you may have! Each athlete is expected to sign the handbook before the season begins.
