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

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.
