Coaches will be on hand at tryouts to determine if a potential player has the necessary fundamental skills or raw talent to succeed in our AAU Program. Selections will be based on coach’s evaluation of performance during the tryout period. Our goal is to make you a better player. A regular AAU roster consists of 15 players. It is our intention to have only 10 or 11 players on each team, to allow us to give you the most game experience possible. Coaches and staff decisions are final as to which players will be on which teams. There is NO MANDATORY FUNDRAISING you may choose to sell advertising if you want.
