: : : : Can someone explain in plain English and give dates for live period with aau team and high school team. Thank you in advance.
: : : And what does live period mean?
: : My understanding:
: : April(4/26-4/28) and July (7/11-7/14) live periods(evaluation periods) for AAU teams. California is not participating in the recruitment period in June where state sanctioning bodies hold tournaments for high school teams. This means outside of those AAU periods, the only way that players can be seen outside of those 2 weekends are to attend a school's elite camp or a team camp. It's a mess, you go from 3 weekends in July to just 1. Will change how schools will need to recruit in California and how club and hs coaches will schedule to be most effective. Bet the scouting services are loving it.
: Thatís why if kids play AAU a few things
: *get with a program whoís coaches have connections, marketing geniuses and will truly help you develop over those months
: * with it being just 2 weekends donít get bamboozled into paying heavy dues ( unless your going to be on a top tier AAU programs upper tier teams)
: *Those weekends that arenít live you better hope tournament directors are able to bring in media outlets that college coaches are familiar with (Gerry Freitas, Devin Ugland, Ron Flores, BCH, Baller Visions, Ball is Life)
Is it the same for girls as well. Haven't heard anything but would like to know.
