This depends on the player levels for each team. Usually the High School teams will go to showcase tournaments.
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.
Uniforms are sold separately. For prices please check the AAU page.
Cost varies depending on age group and team, with the high school teams being more expensive. View Spring AAU for costs.
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.
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.
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).
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 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.
