Play a Fall Sports

Tryout for AAU


Coach a Fall Sport: It is always good to be exposed to different opportunities to develop coaching skills. Coaching soccer, flag football, football, volleyball, cross-country, etc. will improve how you interact with players during basketball season.

Play a Fall Sport: Playing additional sports, especially BEFORE the age is 14 is so valuable. Youth guidelines produced by the NBA and USA basketball STRONGLY discourages specializing in basketball too early. Playing a variety of sports helps to avoid burnout.

Plan Tryouts:

Establish Team and Player Goals.

Compose a Pre-Season Email: This initial email should be sent out at least a week before the 1st practice. It is a great way to start the season on the right foot!
