August 4th Evaluation/Tryouts
Thank you for your interest in the Wisconsin Purple Aces! It's not too early to think about 2020! We are interested in adding elite players. Please use the link below to express your interest!
The grassroots landscape is very competitive and people feel pressured to join teams immediately after the AAU season. So, we were not surprised to see so many people reach out inquiring about our tryouts. We want to remind you, most major AAU program in our region held multiple "evaluations, and/or tryouts" last year. We held tryouts for some groups and many of our older groups did not have a tryout.
We have already began building our teams for next year. We start with developing, evaluating and keeping many of our current players and strategically adding the right players when it’s the proper fit.
We will host an informational meet and greet/workout/try-out on August 4th at The Driveway (1220 Flightway Dr. De Pere, WI 54115).

What do we look for at Evaluations/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.
