- No AAU Mismatches! (Teams are assigned by coaches to guarantee competitive inter-league games)
- Coaches determine player match-ups to guarantee your son is playing against comparable competition!
- No Zones Allowed! (Approximately 85% of AAU teams play zone defense, but there is no benefit to the development of your son at this age by playing zone.)
- Tournaments and Practices are during the week, minimizing multi-sport conflicts.
- No Travel! All practices and inter-league tournaments are at Harper College.
