WHO IS TEAM UNITED BASKETBALL?
Team United Basketball was started in order to give the kids in our community a chance to be part of a club that shares their love for basketball. We are a family oriented basketball club, that focuses on basketball fundamentals and also in helping raise young adults. Basketball and life lessons go side by side, so all Team United Basketball coaches and volunteers also serve as mentors.
WHEN DOES THE 2019 SPRING SEASON START AND END?
Spring session is 03/01/2019 to 06/01/2019 for 2nd through 8th grades. HS Season will be mid March to June 1st. (Summer season is from 6/01/2019 to 9/01/2019.)
CAN MY CHILD PLAY ONLY ONE OF THE THREE SESSIONS (SPRING, SUMMER OR FALL)?
Absolutely, your child can play one, two or three seasons. Spots are limited on summer and fall teams so will have to check in with coaches.
Note: There are no tryouts in Summer or Fall, open spots on teams are filled on a case by case basis. Our open tryouts are done in January for our Spring Season.
WHEN AND WHERE WILL WE PRACTICE?
Practices will be set up by your respective coach and will be communicated to you via TEAMSNAP (Online App). They will also be posted on our websites events calendar.
WHEN AND WHERE WILL WE PLAY?
Team United is a basketball club (not a league) that will mostly play in weekend tournaments. We play against other clubs around the Bay Area. They are usually three game tournaments, two are played on Saturdays and one played on Sundays. Your coach will set up dates and locations pending team availability. There may be one out of town tournament that requires overnight stay.
HOW MUCH PLAYING TIME WILL MY CHILD GET?
That is a great question. The short answer is that it’s up to the coach, there are no guaranteed minutes in AAU. Depending on your child’s participation in practices, skill and listening ability, would determine playing time. However, it all comes down to the coach and game situation. It’s best to consult your coach on their philosophy.
ARE THERE FULL/PARTIAL REFUNDS IF WE DECIDE TO LEAVE DURING A SEASON?
Unfortunately, because we pay for all tournaments, gym and other fees months in advance to secure our participation, we will NOT be able to give you a full or partial refund if you decide not to play after you have committed and paid your fees. No Exceptions.
WHAT TO BRING TO TRYOUTS?
Please have your child bring appropriate shoes, lots of water and a fun attitude. We encourage all players to show up to both tryout dates, but only one is mandatory to make one of our teams.
Coaches are looking for the 10-11 best skilled players to make up their team. In some cases there will be more than one team per grade. Just like High school, players will be placed on teams depending skill level.
Navy = Elite, this team will play in top level tournament. Will most likely travel once or twice per season.
Silver = Competitive, this team will play in competitive local tournaments. May travel, depending on coach.
ARE THERE PAYMENT PLANS?
Yes, please contact us to set up.
DOES TEAM UNITED OFFER SIBLING DISCOUNTS?
Yes, Team United offers discounts to families with more than one child playing for our organization.
