Club History

Originally founded as the ‘Missouri Valley Eclipse Amateur Athletic Club,’ the club is a non-profit organization incorporated in 2002 by Joe Erskine.  In 2008 the Missouri Valley Eclipse and the Missouri Valley Power merged into one organization. This expanded the club and brought together like-minded players, parents and coaches who strive for the achievement of similar goals at all levels of the organization. Since the clubs humble beginning - starting with just 2 teams, it has grown to over 300 girls. 

In 2017, the Eclipse merged with Next Level Hoops Academy out of Wichita, KS, to become the Next Level Eclipse. The merger is the combination of two highly successful girls basketball clubs. Eclipse Basketball is affiliated with BlueStar Basketball/USJN.  Next Level Hoops is affiliated with Premier Basketball & Adidas. Both programs specialize in player development and are considered regional powers in Girls Basketball.
