Pacific Northwest AAU does not form teams or hold tryouts. However, here are some helpful hints in looking for a team for your young athlete:
Have your child talk to classmates and see where they are currently playing.
Talk to your local Middle School and High School coaches to see if there are any local teams to participate or try out for.
Check the local events listed on our web page, access the organization's website, view the schedules for your athlete's age and visit a game to see if your child is ready to play at that level. This is also a great opportunity to speak with a coach and get details on the availability of a spot, costs, and practices.
Gather some players, get an AAU club membership and start your own team!
