UPDATED AUG. 30

And the hunt is on! The AAU summer season is barely over and the recruiting of top players is already hot and heavy. While those activities go on out of the public view, most of the clubs are holding open workouts and tryouts with an eye to forming their teams for 2020. Below is the most current information we have on when and where tryouts will be held. It will be updated frequently.

All grades listed with the tryouts are for the player’s grade this fall – i.e. the grade they are going into. If a team has a year listed with it (e.g. Fury 2023) that refers to the player’s high school graduation year. A couple of other notes:

  • Clubs are listed in alphabetical order.
  • We provide basic information on dates, times and locations. Refer to the club’s website for details.
  • We include tryouts for years 2024-2021 (grades 8-11) because those are the years we will cover next summer.

Note to clubs: If your organization is not included here, or your information needs to be updated/corrected, please email gmachoops@gmail.com and we will make the updates as soon as possible.
