The Purple Aces will hold tryouts for our 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th grade youth teams. The Aces only build one team at each grade level, so this is a highly competitive tryout.

Potential players must attend a minimum of one session, attending both is encouraged. Tryout results will be e-mailed afterwards. Your $10 try-out fee gets you into both sessions.

What do we look for at Tryouts?
In order to maintain the standard that Purple Aces teams have, we build ONE elite team per age group.
- Players that are coachable and will make our teams better.
- Players that we believe have a possibility to play varsity basketball
- Players with the potential and desire to take their game to the collegiate level.
- Mastery of offensive skills (shooting, passing, dribbling, screening)
- Ability/willingness to rebound - both offensively and defensively
- Defensive ability and desire
- Quickness and agility
- Ability to think and react quickly
- Ball handling ability
- Leadership and communication skills
We have learned through experience and conversations with various college coaches that one of the most important evaluation tools used in the collegiate scholarship evaluation process is a potential player's attitude and body language both on and off the court. Purple Aces players are expected to represent their team and our program accordingly.
