Who: NEPA Elite Boys and Girls AAU tryouts

What: Tryout for NEPA ELITE AAU PROGRAM. You will play over 30 games and receive over 50 hours of practice time from a paid professional coach. Each Player will also receive a reversible practice shirt and shorts. They will receive a game uniform that must be returned after the season.

Where: Practices will be held at Backcourt Hoops, University of Scranton, John Son College, and Clarks Summit University. Games will be played in Scranton, King of Prussia, Pittsburgh, Albany, Manheim, Richmond and Baltimore.

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.

Additional Info

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.

  • 9 Tournaments with a minimum of 30 games.
  • 50 Hours of practice time
  • 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.
