Our Story

Flight Elite was founded in 1997 by Phil Doherty and Chris Whirlow. Their mission was to build competitive teams and challenge them by playing at the highest level of competition. Over the past 20+ years, Flight Elite teams have competed in tournaments all over the United States.

Our Team

We have been fortunate to surround our players with great coaches. Our staff is comprised of individuals who love basketball and continue to teach the game that they love.

Scholarship Program

Our Flight Elite program has been fortunate to receive assistance from generous donors over the past 20 years. These donations have made it possible for hundreds of Flight Elite players to be able to participate. If you would like to help with our scholarship program, you can make a tax deductible donation to the program by clicking below. 100% of donations received goes directly to the kids.
