Our Game-Play Mindset

At LOCALHOOPS we pride ourselves on being seriously competitive – we go into every game expecting to win and both players and coaches leave it all on the court to make sure that we do. But we do so within the bounds of two foundational philosophies:

First, we believe that the primary purpose of competition is to make our athletes better. Game play is the pinnacle component of player development, a place for athletes to hot-forge the skills they’ve learned from training in the heat of competition.  Shots taken under pressure are more valuable than shots in practice, defending an opposing player makes you stronger than defending your practice partner, and reading the court against an unfamiliar defense makes you smarter. Games are the ultimate classroom.

Second, we believe there is an appropriate level of competition for every level of athlete. Our elite AAU athletes learn and grow under the bright lights, big crowds, and tough teams of national tournaments, while our younger or less experienced athletes do so in settings more appropriate to their growth stage, against teams that will stretch them without discouraging them.

A Roster Spot for Everyone

There's a place on a LOCALHOOPS team for all players - all abilities, all ages, and all genders. We have our AAU travelling teams for our top athletes, our in-house league for our up-and-comers, and our development league for those just starting out. We work closely with every athlete to place them on the right team in the right league, so they achieve most development, get the most satisfaction, and have the most fun! Check out all our ways to play, below.

Our Seasons

We offer three seasons of competitive play and year-round development play. Fall runs from September through mid-November and is all about getting ready for the school season. During winter our high-schoolers take a break to play for their schools while our younger players compete locally and regionally. Then Spring is our big AAU season, when we travel locally and nationally to compete and gain exposure for our top athletes. Then in the summer we run our in-house and development leagues, which also run in all other seasons.

AAU competitive teams offer our highest level of play, including local, regional, and national tournaments. Athletes practice twice a week and have 2 or more tournaments per month, depending on the season. Spring is the longest, most important season, with the most tournaments and the most college recruiting visibility for athletes in the upper grades. Fall and winter season offer the chance to develop your game year-round and prepare for the school and AAU seasons.
