Premier Courts 2017 Spring AAU Program
Everyone will have a tryout for the Elite/Gold Team
first. Once the Elite/Gold Team has been selected a tryout for the Blue Team
will take place. This allows players who do not make the Gold Team an
opportunity to tryout for the Blue Team. If a coach is in place prior we
can put multiple Blue Teams together in the same age group. All players
not selected for a team will be invited to play in the developmental

Mass Premier Elite teams are given this title ONLY
after finishing in the Top 4 of the Division 1 states. These teams will
compete at the highest possible level, recruit talented players and the goal
every year is to win a state title and travel to nationals. They practice
two days per week and play in between 8-10 tournaments plus a national
tournament (if the team/coach chooses to travel) The cost of this program is
the same as the Gold team plus an additional $50.00 per player.
The Gold Team is the most
competitive team at each age level. (unless an elite team exists) Gold
teams will be playing in each tournament to win. It is necessary for
players who play on the Gold Team to be highly committed. Teams will
practice twice a week and practice participation will be expected (policy will
vary depending on coach). Gold Teams are required to participate in
the state tournament. Gold teams will often participate in tournaments
outside of MA as well (travel will vary depending on coach).
Gold teams are for developed players that are very serious and committed.
All Gold team coaches will have a previous coaching background. Some
Gold team coaches will be paid (depending on age group). If a Gold Team
qualifies for Nationals the team will have a meeting with parents to determine
appropriate travel plans for Nationals. The goal of the gold team is to
achieve Elite status.
The Blue Team is a competitive AAU team. Blue Teams will find a balance
between being extremely competitive in tournaments and developing players
through practice and game play. Blue Teams will typically travel somewhat
locally to off site tournaments (travel will vary depending on coach).
Teams will practice twice a week (some blue teams only practice once per week
per coach decision) and practice participation will be expected when available
(policy will vary depending on coach).
Blue Teams will be required to participate in the state
tournament. If a Blue Team qualifies for Nationals the team will have a
meeting with parents to determine appropriate travel plans for Nationals.

AAU has become very competitive. Every year we see the level of talent of
our teams increase greatly at every level. With this increase in talent
some players that are late developers or are new comers to the game can get
left behind with nowhere to play. Plus we have seen parents make a large
investment for their son or daughter to be teamed up with players that are not
ready to compete at the AAU level and spend many weekends seeing their teams
lose by large margins.
We have created a program just for you. Players
who are not selected for a Gold or Blue team are automatically invited to the
Developmental League. Players can also elect to play in the developmental
league and not try-out for either team. This is great for a multi-sport
athlete. You will receive most of the same benefit as playing on a team.
