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 (4th-7th). 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 and professional level.
CONDUCT:
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.
