1/2 of Player Rates are due at tryouts. If your daughter is selected AND accepts a roster spot a non-refundable deposit will be made. The other half will be due on or before the first practice in the spring. Families will have the option to participate in a program wide fundraiser through Double Good to help offset some of the cost of their second half of their player rate.
*Rates listed above apply to 2024 Spring/Summer Season - ALL TEAMS practice 1-2 per week starting in Mid-March and there will also be a number of optional skill development sessions throughout the spring. The majority of the practices will be held at The Driveway in West De Pere (8th-17u)! 4th-7th Grade will ALSO practice at Valley View Elementary in Ashwaubenon, and other locations in the Greater Green Bay Area.
ACES SOUTH - Led by Assistant Director - Jen Wellnitz-Krogman, the Aces are expanding south with new teams and experienced coaches. Aces South will practice in Southern WI, mostly at Argyle HS, Beaver Dam Area, and the Madison Area.
We will continue to partner with Aurora Baycare - Athletic Republic, Synergy Sports Performance and The Driveway to offer additional development opportunities.
What do we look for at Evaluations/Tryouts?
In order to maintain the standard that Purple Aces teams have, we build elite teams in each age group through 17u. This usually means one team per age group, in some rare occasions, we will do multiple teams on the youth side. It means something to be an Ace!
We look for:
- Players that are coachable and will make our teams better.
- Players that we believe have a possibility to play varsity basketball
- Players with the potential and desire to take their game to the collegiate level.
We have learned through experience and conversations with various college coaches that one of the most important evaluation tools used in the collegiate scholarship evaluation process is a potential player's attitude and body language both on and off the court. Purple Aces players are expected to represent their team and our program to the Aces' standard.
