Frequently Asked Questions

A note to our Parents and Players

Parents– Crossroads Basketball has worked hard to get great coaches on every level of our organization. With that being said our coaches are more than qualified to help your son/daughter to not only improve individually but also learn the game of basketball. If you choose to be part of this family there will be a parent contract along with a list of rules that will be strictly enforced to help the AAU season run as smoothly as possible.

Players – Players will also have to sign a contract. This states that they will work hard, listen, and be good teammates amongst other things. We strictly enforce this contract as well; our program has always had high character kids and we will continue to make sure it does.

Will there be showcase tournaments?2018-03-18T22:03:44+00:00

This depends on the player levels for each team. Usually the High School teams will go to showcase tournaments.

Who are the coaches?2016-02-02T02:38:28+00:00

The coaches will not be determined until we find out how many teams we’ll have for the upcoming season. Every one of our coaches is more than qualified to help your child’s game get to the next level. View our coaches here.

Are uniforms included?2018-03-18T22:52:06+00:00

Uniforms are sold separately. For prices please check the AAU page.

How much does AAU cost?2016-02-16T19:05:22+00:00

Cost varies depending on age group and team, with the high school teams being more expensive. View Spring AAU for costs.

When does AAU start and end?2016-02-16T19:07:15+00:00

For all teams, Practices will start the second week of March. For the younger kids, the AAU season usually ends in June. For the older kids, the AAU season will end in July. Visit Spring AAU for schedule.

How many practices will there be and where will they be held at?2016-02-02T02:39:38+00:00

All teams will practice at least twice per week. Practices will be held at either Lafayette Township School, Sussex Tech, Green School or Sussex County College.

How many games do we play?2016-02-02T02:34:55+00:00

The number of games will be determined by which team your child plays for. Our girls high school team plays around 50 games (not including scrimmages).

What options are there for my child who does not make a team?2016-02-16T19:08:34+00:00

There is a team for everyone, for those who do not make an AAU Team, we offer a new program the Crossroads Program.

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.

How do I know if I made the team?2016-01-22T19:51:06+00:00

How will I know if my son/daughter made the team? After the last tryout date, teams will be posted on the Crossroads website. Please have patience with this process; we had over 250 kids’ tryout last year and expect more for this upcoming AAU season.
