AAU competitive teams offer our highest level of play, including local, regional, and national tournaments. Athletes practice twice a week and have 1 or more tournaments per month, depending on the season. Spring is the busiest, most important season, with the most tournaments and the most college recruiting visibility for athletes in the upper grades.

Our game-play mindset 

Game play   is an essential component of player development, as long as it is approached with the proper mindset.  Our goal is to use the game of basketball to teach real life principles that our athletes will take with them into the next chapter of their lives.  We therefore put less focus on winning games than we do on the development that comes from them. To be clear, every time we take the floor we are playing to win, but winning is not the ultimate goal.  Games play is all about decision making. What separates athletes at a high level the ability to make the right in-game reads consistently. Basketball IQ is the hardest skill to teach, but by far the most important. LOCALHOOPS coaches hold their players to a high standard, and games are the ultimate classroom.

We travel locally, regionally and nationally to compete and gain exposure for our top athletes.

We offer  three seasons of competitive play and year-round development play.  Our AAU seasons are:

Fall - Fall runs from Sept. through mid-Nov. for all grade levels. Tryouts take place end of August/early September. Athletes can expect 1-2 practices per week with either 2 tournaments per month or a Fall league that ends with a Veterans Day weekend tournament.

Winter - Winter is all basketball season! For our 8th grade and below, our top teams compete in local & regional tournaments against top competition. Our B level teams will do a local league and tournaments. We do not offer high school teams in Winter, as we encourage our athletes to play for their school. We do offer Sunday skills workouts for our high level athletes who have aspirations of playing at the collegiate level. Our Winter season runs from mid- November through the end of February. Tryouts for Winter take place early November.

Spring - Spring is the biggest AAU season of the year, where our players build their skills by challenging themselves against the best competition, and also a chance for the older kids to get evaluated by participating in the recruiting process through our NCAA sanctioned tournament circuit. Spring runs from March through early July. Spring tryouts take place end of February.

 

Summer - Summer is our "off-season". We will however run an in-house league with game play only, no practices to give our athletes the opportunity to still work on game skills in a structured environment without the rigors of a full season. Summer is typically a 5-7 week league where athletes play one game per week, during the week. We will have trainings offered every day during the week for our dedicated athletes. The season will end with one weekend of playoffs towards the end of August before we break for Fall season tryouts. Tryouts for summer season take place end of June.

Come run with us!
