Team Memphis Elite and Memphis Lady Celtics Join Forces
It is with great pleasure that Don Williams, president of Team Memphis Elite and Eddie Clinton, retired AAU Executive Director and head of Memphis Lady Celtics announce the merging of the two clubs with a long history in the Memphis Area.
Team Memphis Elite teams have won multiple championships under the direction of Don Williams and Gordon Summerfield before that.
As a coach, Eddie Clinton won 4 AAU national championships and many more runner-up trophies before moving to Orlando to run AAU nationally on the woman's side. Upon his retirement, he moved back to the Memphis area and restarted his beloved Lady Celtics program with the help of Bill Harper and many of his former players.
It is our vision that our combined clubs will provide the young ladies of the mid-south area the best opportunity to compete, improve skills and be successful as not only basketball players but also as improved students. We will continue to teach life skills in addition to basketball.
Under the new Team Memphis Elite, grades 4th thru 8th will be under the Celtics Division and 9th thru 11th will be under the Elite Division.
