Default How often do AAU teams practice?

I'm wondering because I live in the upper peninsula of Michigan where the nearest team would be about 2 hours and if they practice 2-3 times a week it would be kind of unrealistic to commute back and forth all the time.

Good question. It really depends on the coach and how much access you have to a gym. I have seen some coaches conduct 3-4 practices a week, lasting 1-2 hours. I have seen coaches practice 2-3 times a week. It all depends on the coach and how much access you have to a gym.

Thanks. Unfortunately it looks like I'm out of luck.

I wouldn't be so sure. It depends on your age as well. I've played on AAU squads that only practiced 1-2 times a week. My brother, a freshman now, I believe only practiced once a week for his Ann Arbor squad last year. He has played on other teams though that practiced more often. It just totally depends on the squad. I say there's nothing to be lost in calling and asking.

Also, AAU has spread like wild fire over the last 10 years or so. I know you're in the UP, but I don't think it's far-fetched that a new AAU squad could be created closer to your home. My brother had one AAU team that was an "elite" squad made up of some of the finer Ann Arbor players but he also played on an AAU team made up mostly of fellow players from his own school (like an extended team season).

I'm a sophomore right now, and all the teams in Green Bay and Appleton practice 2+ times a week, so I don't think that would work. There's another team about 15 minutes from me but they said they weren't accepting any more players and another team about an hour away I'm trying to contact.

Do you have any classmates playing offseason ball? And obvious follow up question: if classmates are playing ball in the offseason, then where are they playing? I know it can be tough to get work in locally in the offseason if your school or classmates don't share the passion you do.

No none of them do, even the varsity players. The few teams in the U.P. are made up of kids who I don't know very well from tiny Class D schools. I know a few classmates who would most likely be interested though.

You could try creating your own team, if you have the money and time to dedicate to it.

Or you could fly out to the Boston area and help me form a super team
