Workouts and tryouts will be made up of drills and scrimmages. We will split the athletes up according to grade levels for scrimmages. All 3rd graders will be trying out for the 4th grade team. We ask that each player bring a reversible jersey or shirt with a number on it so we can identify each player. We are offering more opportunities for kids to perform, so we ask that you attend at least one workout and one tryout for us to fairly evaluate each player and make decisions. We will start check-ins 30 minutes prior to each session so we can start workouts and tryouts on time. Both training and workout will consist of skills, drills, and full and half court scrimmage.
ONLY THOSE WHO HAVE MADE A TEAM WILL RECEIVE A CALL.
2020 AAU Season Info:
For the 2020 season, fees for grades 4-7 will range from $550-$750, but can be subject to change according to the number of roster spots, tournaments, out-of-state tournaments, and other factors. We do not pay for travel expenses for out of state tournaments. Uniforms will be included in the fees and will be yours to keep at the end of the season. In order to secure your roster spot, we will collect a team deposit once a commitment is made. We will collect half the team fee by Dec. 1. The final payment for the team will be collected before the first tournament of the AAU season. We will offer payment plans to help in any way we can, but you must communicate your financial need prior to, or upon, accepting a roster spot.
We plan to have final schedules set once we have fully evaluated teams, but no later than March 1 st . The number of tournaments will vary by age and level of team. There will be between 6-10 tournaments from grades 4-11. Teams will be scheduled to travel according to the level of the team. Tournaments can be added as the season progresses per coach and player commitment.
Each team will practice on average two times per week. Each practice will range from 90-120 minutes unless the team coach schedules differently. Practice locations will be at the 43 Hoops Basketball Academy, Hopkins HS/Junior HS, and possibly other locations in the surrounding area according to how much space is needed. We will have the official nights of practice set once teams are completed.
* Unless communicated with the coach, it is very important that players are consistently attending practices in order to get the proper playing time etc.
