FALL 2022 AAU SEASON INFOFRMATION
Fall 2022 AAU Commitment Requirements
We are gearing our fall season towards athletes with a specific focus on basketball and elevating their games in preparation for their winter travel, middle school and high school seasons. We are looking for committed, hard-working individuals to join our organization for the upcoming fall AAU season. The season will run from September through mid- November and will consist of:
1 90min team practice/week
additional team practices/workout almost weekly
Team Practice Commitment and attendance to team practice is required, lack of commitment or 2 unexcused absences will lead to immediate dismissal of the team. Fusion Elite practices are designed to challenge each player. Practice is essential to improving and we believe this is where player and team development and improvement occurs. Teams only practice 1 time each week in the fall. We expect every athlete present at practice.
By committing to Fusion Elite AAU for the fall you are not able to participate with any other AAU organization for the length of the season. We ask that athletes only attend tryouts with the intent on being able to fully commit to all practices & tournaments. We are ok with athletes playing multiple sports or playing on town teams in the fall as long as there are no conflicts with scheduled team practices. Any pre-scheduled conflicts should be told to the coach right away.

The main goal of the fall season is to expose our athletes to the top competition in their respective age groups by participating in some of the top local and regional tournaments (depending on the level of the team). We strive to get the most out of each gym opportunity we get with your athlete so commitment for the fall season is crucial. We pride ourselves on being NJ's #1 Youth developmental Basketball program. At Fusion Elite Basketball we take pride in providing quality coaching.

Tournament travel varies from season to season. Tournament travel time can be anywhere from 20mins to 3 hours away. Tournament games are held on weekends.
