We’ve been running these AAU basketball teams for the last 6 years or so, and we’ve seen the tremendous value that AAU brings to young kids if done the right way. We now have AAU teams in the Charlotte and Lake Norman areas, Denver Colorado, and Greensboro NC!
One of the things we do in our PSB Select club is, if we have multiple teams in a grade, we form multiple teams and break them up into “A” and “B” teams, which we label “Gold” and “Black” (our club colors).
We do this for a number of reasons including, but not limited to:
- Not wanting to “cut” young kids who want to play
- Ability to give more kids a chance to play
- More efficient distribution of playing time
- More efficient development of skills all-around
However, forming a “Black” team or “B” team always causes some issues, sometimes amongst players, but more often, among parents.
