Default Questions for american players

So i was wondering a couple things about basketball in america and i couldn't find the answers with google so i thought i'd ask here.

how long is basketball season(including practices)?

How many practices a week for aau , high school ,and college ball and how long do they last?

how much weightlifting a week?

And could someone explain to me how high school basketball works?(like how do they decide which team plays against which team)

i know you cant give me exact answers but just give me an average

speaking from my experience

1. High School - November- March, then AAU March- end of July ( if I remember correctly)

2. AAU practice varies on your team. I believe when I played we had practice 2-3 times a week. In high school we had practice every weekday assuming there is no game and sometimes on saturday. so anywhere from 3-6 times a week. Practices were about 2 hours long.

3. Before/After the season we had weight lifting/conditioning 3 times a week ( every other day) for high school. In season like 1 time a week.

4. The Athletic Director at your high school I believe schedules the game and in season tournaments. The conference my high school was in we played about 20-25 games a season. However, a lot of big time prep high school like say Oak Hill Academy play about 40-50 games a season. The better your school is the tougher the Athletic Director will try to schedule tougher out of conference teams. That's why a lot of times you see #2 team in the country going up against the #7 team in the country.

-basketball season is for a few months then the state tourneys start
-In HS we practiced everyday of the week except Sundays...on Saturdays we ran practice without coach/messed around/rested.

-You can look up aau practice times and college practice rituals, try google.

-In HS we lifted twice a week.

-Our coach called around basically to set up games. Certain schools have rivalries where they play at each other's gym bi-annually. Most schools are in sectionals and have agreements to play the teams in their section then just fill in the holes.

I know these aren't the best responses but hey...

1) November to March

2) Everyday practice for high school & college unless they are game days

3) Weightlifting is a on your own time basis in most high schools but in college there are scheduled ones

4) Whoever is head of the athletic department of the school registers the team to a league and the league handles all that.
