AAU season is about to get started and players and parents are deciding which team they should play for. The question is which program should you invest your time in if you have multiple options. Whether your child is just starting to play basketball or your child has already been offered by a number of colleges, deciding the correct AAU team is very important. Here are four points that you should take in consideration when deciding which AAU team your child should play for. Although this post is discussing AAU teams these concepts can be applied to any program on any level.
LEVEL OF COMPETITION
The new AAU season is upon us and players will be competing for spots on various AAU teams. Make sure that whichever team your child plays for it is the right fit and most importantly it is preparing them to be successful when it is time to play high school basketball. The AAU season is often looked at a time where players can show they can play. The high school season is the time where players show they can play in a system, while being a student and maintaining their grades. Both concepts need to be mastered in order to earn an athletic scholarship.
