U14 & U17 AAU TRYOUTS - 4/9

Greetings All,
I hope everyone is doing well as many school basketball seasons are coming down to the end. With that being said, I would like to invite each of you to participate in our tryouts for the 14u team which myself and freshman Head Coach Malloy Hester will coach this summer as well as our 17u team will be coached by our varsity asst. Julian Harris(former Menlo College Grad). Our program will run from April to Mid-July with practice twice a week and a tournament approximately every other weekend beginning April 21 or 28. We are planning to play in a total of seven local (within 30 minutes of Menlo) tournaments and one road trip to be determined. We believe that there are high quality and competitive tournaments locally and recognize many of the kids and families have other commitments so we think local is the way to go. In addition we will have every Friday night a skill workshop that will consist of shooting/ball-handling/ and game situation breakdown.

Our program will not only focus and teach the basic fundamentals needed for kids to succeed at the high school level, but also teach valuable life lessons that comes with playing basketball (i.e. teamwork). Our practice schedule will consist of individual skill work designed to improve the players skills, as well as their overall team/game play. We will focus on defense as we believe this is the key to having success at the next level of basketball.

Our coaching staff consist of former college players who have dedicated themselves to giving back to the game that we all love. I have been at Menlo School for the last three years with this being my first year as Head Coach.

You will receive more information in the coming weeks.
