Eli’s first word was “ball.” He has an extensive knowledge of the game, and he’s excited to be a part of the PPA team. Though Eli didn’t play for the varsity squad at his alma mater, the University of Illinois, he made a name for himself on the intramural courts. He graduated with a BS degree in Journalism. Eli’s top priority is making sure all of his players get the best experience possible.

Eli was a multi-sport athlete at Blair High School and has 8+ years of coaching experience.

For any questions about the Girls Hoops Development Program, please reach out to Michelle at: michelle@ppateam.com

Michelle is thrilled to join the ranks of the fantastic team at PPA. Since her first time playing basketball at age 12, Michelle aspired to become a coach at the highest level she could reach. To no one's surprise, her coaching career began 4 years later at age 16 where she oversaw McLean Youth Basketball. Whether playing or coaching, basketball has always been her biggest passion. Michelle played all 4 years of High School and was named Team Captain at McLean. After graduation she became more heavily involved in coaching. She spent time as the JV Head Coach at her alma mater and also coached AAU basketball in the off season. Michelle is excited for the opportunity to share her love for the sport with the entire PPA family!
