Peoria Area Elite is an AAU Basketball Program started in 2012. We’re starting with the youth level and working up- building a family!

Ultimately our goal is to help young men that have made a commitment to the game of basketball reach their highest potential and prepare them for success at the next level.   PAE participants use basketball to understand citizenship, responsibility, trust, work ethic, competitiveness and more in a healthy environment that promotes pursuing a spirited high school and college education.
