NEPA Elite

Both boys and girls are a part of the Hoop Group Showcase League (#HGSL).

Full season: TBA (includes June Package, uniform, practices and tournaments)

Half season: TBA (includes uniform, practices and tournaments)

Full season: 8 tournaments

Half season: 5 tournaments – Until May 16th for both boys and girls


Who: NEPA Elite Boys and Girls AAU tryouts

What: Tryout for NEPA ELITE AAU PROGRAM at Riverfront Sports

Where: Practices will be held at Riverfront Sports, University of Scranton, Johnson College, and Clarks Summit University. Games will be played all over the Northeast including Scranton, Manheim, King of Prussia and more.

Why: The opportunity to practice with the best players in the area and play against some of the best competition on the east coast. This program may not be for every player. Our Backcourt Bulldogs and NEPA Flames Teams have the same great coaching and practice time at a less expensive cost. It offers fewer tournaments and less travel. 

If you don’t make an NEPA Elite team, you could be offered to play on a lower level team in the program.

Additional Info

Tryout dates will be in March – dates and times to be determined.

The tryout cost is $40.00 dollars. There will be two tryouts. You must attend both of those tryouts.  YOU MUST BE PRE-REGISTERED 7 DAYS BEFORE TRYOUTS ARE SCHEDULED. If you are not pre-registered you cannot try-out. No exceptions will be made. Your son or daughter will receive the following.

  • 8 Tournaments
  • Two practices per week
  • A paid professional Coach
  • A complete practice uniform

This year, we will be using a hotel service to secure hotel room blocks for all NEPA Elite teams. To be eligible to play, you must use the room block that is designated. During larger tournaments, you will have several hotel options to choose from. The goal is to make the hotel reservation process easier for the NEPA Elite families and to make your stay more enjoyable, while always keeping price, location and amenities in mind.
