USAV TRAVEL TEAMS
All travel teams require a huge commitment from both the athlete and their parents. These teams will practice two to three times a week and travel almost every weekend during the club season. Travel expenses are NOT included in USAV club fees, and each athlete is responsible for their own travel expenses and arrangements. Tryouts for USAV teams are highly competitive, and placement is based on skill level. Practices start in January on Sundays with Wednesdays available until basketball is over. Regular practice schedules start the last week in February and run through the last tournament of the season (varies by team).
This program stresses fundamentals and the importance of team play while adding competitive strategy and success by establishing roles for team members. Skill development is based on position as well as team play. Athletes placed on an AAU team are required to attend all practices and travel to all tournaments. There will be 8-10 players on the team. To be considered for an AAU team, athletes must attend the age appropriate tryout session. Teams will be selected based on skill level. Practice will be twice a week beginning the last week in February and run through the first week in may. Most tournaments are local or in-state.
