CROSSROADS PROGRAM (New)

AAU gets a bad rap for a lot of good reasons. For the last ten years I’ve seen hundreds of other programs put teams together that weren’t ready for the level. Just to make a buck they would accept anyone with legs and then send them into the fire. What happens next? Those kids spend the whole season getting their heads beat in, some never get the opportunity to even play, and eventually the child loses his/her love for the game.

After not only hearing but seeing this all to much I decided to start a Crossroads Program for players that are not quite ready for the rigors of AAU. These teams will have the SAME instruction as our AAU teams but will be playing in house games, and against local teams on a similar level. Practices will be twice a week except for on GAME DAY. It’s crucial for players to be able to test what they learn in a game situation, but now it will be in an environment where the competition doesn’t make it impossible to do so.

Because of the way schedules work some of our AAU teams occasionally need a player or two for tournaments. Some (coach selected) players may have the

opportunity to play with our AAU teams for no additional cost. Playing time in AAU especially the older ages is completely up to the coach. This is an amazing opportunity for the players in this program. I look forward to seeing you all at tryouts!!!

“Opportunity doesn’t wait it just knocks, make sure you’re ready for it.”

SUNDAY CLINICS

During the AAU season, Sunday Clinics get harder and harder to schedule due to tournaments. We will be moving Sunday Clinics to Friday. All AAU players will receive a discount for Sunday Clinic registration fee. Please check our schedule for updates.
