The Raising Champions Elite AAU Boys Basketball Organization would like to announce that tryouts for our 2012 16 and under team will be on Tuesday, February 28, 2012 7:30pm – 9:00pm. Raising Champions Elite is one of the top AAU teams in the New York Metropolitan Area. Last year our 17 and under team was rated one of the top ten AAU Teams in the city winning the Hoop Group Showcase Silver Championship Neptune NJ, DMV Elite Championship Bowie MD and Hoop Group End of the Summer Classic Gold Championship Reading, PA. In addition to that we advanced to at least the quaterfinals in every tournament that we played in. Our 15 and under team won the Basketball Spotlight Pre- Summer National Tournament Champion and advanced to the championship game in two other tournaments. But, it is not all about going to national tournaments and winning championships. We offer players of all talent level the opportunity to play competitive spring and summer basketball. In the spring, all teams will play in 5 tournaments throughout the tristate area and also in GA, PA & VA. During the summer all teams will play in 6 tournaments throughout the tristate area and also in MA, NV, PA & WV. Most of all, we will provide very good coaching including a lot of skill work with real practices. The roster size is manageable and the cost to participate is affordable so, if you’re interested in trying out or if you’re a coach and would to reccommend/refer a player please send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a spot (tryouts are limited to the first 20 players to respond).
