Upcoming AAU Basketball Tryouts


Interested in trying out for one of our teams?

Ares basketball is currently going into their Winter/Spring 2020 season with both girls and boys teams. Teams for ages 10 - 14 are currently in season and have a couple spots available on both the boys and girls teams.

When are basketball tryouts?

Our most recent open tryout happened in December of 2019, however, we do hold private/team tryouts during practices throughout the season. Our next tryout will be coming up soon to evaluate players joining for the spring portion of the season as well as high school. By filling out the tryout interest form, you will be added to our mailing list to receive our next available tryout date.

What do basketball tryouts consist of?

Ares coaches and staff will evaluate the player during a tryout by running drills consisting of dribbling, shooting, passing, etc. Depending on the skill level and coaching availability, an Ares coach or staff member will reach out a few days after the tryout to discuss next steps.

How to do well at tryouts

Trying out for a competitive AAU basketball program can be emotional, especially for younger players. We put together a list of how to do well at tryouts to keep in mind when trying out:

  1. Show off what you do best. Don’t worry about the things you're not confident about.
  2. Give 110% effort so bring your hustle
  3. Be positive and help others
  4. Good sportsmanship
  5. Don’t be shy
  6. To be early is to be on time
  7. Made a bad play? Shake it off make it up
