With the focus on Girl's Basketball, Purple Aces is one of the premier AAU Program in the country. We are ORGANIZED, we COMMUNICATE, and we take pride in fostering a great AAU experience for the families we serve. Purple Aces began in 1994 with a vision of helping kids achieve their goals of playing higher level basketball at a cost the parents could afford. Today, the Aces build elite teams. With an emphasis on skill development, we have been able to work with the best student-athletes from the area to compete in highly competitive tournaments. As a 501(c)3 we aim to serve our state and region by focusing on developing our players on and off of the court.
The Purple Aces are a Select 40 program that has the respect of high school coaches across Wisconsin, and club coaches, recruiting services, and college coaches across the country. We play in exposure tournaments in an effort to provide our athletes with the best competition, exposure, and experiences possible. This along with the dedication of our coaches has made Purple Aces the respected program it is today.
Purple Aces uses basketball as a vessel to empower girls through discipline and hard work, building aware, confident and exceptional leaders.
Our 14u-17u teams participate in National College Exposure tournaments..Our 4th, 5th, 6th and 7th grade tournaments are typically played in Wisconsin, Illinois or Minnesota.
What Other Costs Can I Expect?
Besides players rates families should expect to fund travel to and from practice, tournaments, meals and hotels.
Hotel/Meal costs are the responsibility of the individual. We have a wonderful working relationship with many of the hotels from previous years and are able to obtain very favorable rates. Meals are the responsibility of the individual.
There is NOT an additional uniform fee. Uniforms are handed out after team try-outs and are collected following the completion of the season.
A Special Note to Parents - Things we would ask you to please keep in mind ...
We are not in a position to tell parents how to be parents, we would like to provide the following advice. Avoid being "helicopter parents". Helicopter parents hover close by, ready to swoop in and save their daughter anytime something disappointing happens in their lives. Help teach your daughter how to rebound from disappointment - you will be helping them more than you know!
