REGISTRATION FEE:
ESYC Elite’s 2017 AAU Program fee is TO BE DETERMINED per player (if paid by Credit Card) as we are in the process of selecting 7 tournaments (6 for 10u) and 2 practices per week for each team; fees will cover AAU Insurance, tournaments, gym rental fees, equipment, and administrative costs. Player AAU Memberships, Coaches’ salaries for games, hotel lodging, and other miscellaneous expenses are not included within the AAU Program fee and will be handled separately.

What is AAU?
The Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) is one of the largest, non-profit, volunteer, sports organizations in the United States. A multi-sport organization, the AAU is dedicated exclusively to the promotion and development of amateur sports and physical fitness program.

How much does it cost to try-out for the ESYC Elite AAU basketball program?
The cost of the tryout is $20 (Spring AAU) for each participant.

How many tryouts does my child need to attend and what is the selection process like?
It is recommended that each player attend all tryouts because selections will be based on coach evaluations of performance during the tryout period.

Does the ESYC Elite AAU program have different levels for each team?
We project that we will have a Team A and Team B program for each age group. Final decision on the number of teams will be made during assessments. The clear delineation between the two will assist in scheduling, player development programming, and playing time issues. This is always an area of debate, as evaluations with regards to talent level and “right fit” are somewhat subjective, but we always strive to do our best with player placement.

If my child is selected to a team, how much does it cost to participate in the AAU program?
Spring AAU: Registration Costs for 2016 Spring AAU range from $475 to $595 (see price structure above). The first payment installment will be due the week of selection. The balance will be due in 30 days. This fee covers tournament entries, Coaches AAU fees, and insurance. Travel costs such as meals and hotels are NOT included in your registration. For any overnight events, ESYC Elite will provide advance notice of the event.

Who will be the coaches for the AAU programs?
Our Director of Basketball Operations will be assigning coaches to each team. Each team will be notified of their coach after tryouts are completed.

During the AAU season, where will the events be held?
All of our teams will be scheduled to different tournaments, many of which will be held at East Side Youth Center. We are fortunate to be hosting tournaments on our home courts. As we are a travel basketball organization, all teams should expect to participate in at least one overnight tournament this Spring 2017.

How many days a week will the teams practice?
Each player will receive approximately 25-30 hours of practice time. This will typically involve two practices per week during March and April, and one practice per week in May.

How many events will my child be participating in during the AAU season?
10 u teams will participate in 6 events between March and June. 11u and above teams will participate in 7 events between March and June. Players will be issued a calendar of “On-Weekends” and “Off-Weekends”. This will give you dates where we expect that your team will be playing, but not necessarily the name of each event.

How will we receive information during the season?
ESYC Elite is a website-driven organization. We will provide updates on tournaments and practices via the Team Snap online application. If you have Schedule Query, always check our with your head coach and /or team mom first before calling or emailing. Also, coaches will be issued emails for teams, in order to provide any necessary dialogue with families during the season.
