AAUs Cost Per Player: $400.00

Practices will start the week of May 6 or 13, 2019 depending on your tournament dates. Some age groups play a week or so before others. Once teams are formed, coaches will communicate all this information with players and parents including practice days and times. Teams will have a minimum of 2 practices a week plus scrimmage time set up by each coach.
