The Philadelphia Suns began in 1972 with a handful of youths playing basketball in Chinatown. Today our basketball program has evolved into multiple teams, consisting of various age groups, skill levels, and gender. All teams emphasize values including hard work, teamwork, respect, self-control, and integrity.



We host our own winter and spring tournaments. As the hosting team, players are expected to help out with logistics, such as setup and scorekeeping. Our teams also travel to compete in tournaments hosted by other Asian communities in nearby cities such as New York and Boston.


Throughout the season, we host practices, where our players develop fundamental skills, practice plays, and scrimmage for game-time experience. Through practice, our players build strength, mental fortitude, and team skills.



Players in the basketball program are expected to participate in community service activities with the organization such as lion dance performances, clean-ups, and other volunteering efforts. These service opportunities promote team building and teaches our players to give back to the community. Additionally, these events help fundraise for transportation, tournament, and court fees.
