About the BallMatics Elite AAU REP Basketball Team
If your student-athlete is selected during our REP basketball tryouts they will be joining an elite team. The student-athletes on these teams enter a fun environment where they are being prepared for high performance sports and academia. The focus of our basketball program is to prepare these student-athletes to compete at the university level upon leaving high school in the years ahead. This process starts now.
Our typical AAU REP basketball team practices will include elite level skill work with speed, power, agility, reaction and quickness training. Plyometric training is also used to increase each player’s athletic ability. Fundamental and advanced basketball skills are added to the practice schedule daily. Most sessions round out with team concepts to build on all previous activities.
One practice a week will have an academic component included in the schedule. Each lesson is closely linked to the activities on court. This keeps our student-athletes aware of how sport is connected to real life. Our methods are designed to instill enthusiasm in academics and allow our student-athletes to be prepared to attain academic and athletic success.
We look forward to hosting your child at our REP basketball tryouts and hopefully developing them as part of one of our teams in the near future!
STEAM and AAU REP Basketball Tryouts
What is STEAM? How do STEAM and basketball work together? Will this program make my student-athletes more prepared for the future?
STEAM is an approach to learning that involves the use of Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics. These subjects are used as entry points to guide a student’s interest, conversations and critical thinking.
We use STEAM with Basketball activities to engage our athletes interest in learning.
Is a REP Basketball team that marries athletics with academics right for your budding basketball prodigy? Simply put yes!
Every elite athlete needs to be academically qualified to accept an athletic scholarship. Often caregivers to exceptional talents spend a great deal focusing on helping develop and nurture their athletic abilities and forget about their need to also develop academically.
Our REP AAU Basketball team differs from most in this area. We place equal emphasis on our player’s athletic and academic development. Their level of achievement is measured based on both areas of development.
