What We Do

Tryouts

We run tryouts for our girl's teams in August each year for the following Spring Season.  

We run tryouts for our boy's teams immediately before Spring Season in late February and early March.

During tryouts, we select players for both our Standard and Elite teams.

Spring Season - Standard

East Metro Wave specializes in customizing seasons to fit the needs of our families.  We want to make AAU basketball work for you and your family. If you have a group of kids who want to play, but need a special schedule, contact us! Let us know what you need and we will do our best to make a season work for you. 

A typical season runs approximately from early April through mid-June.  Teams practice twice a week and play in 5-7 tournaments.  Each player receives a gear pack.  The gear pack changes every year but includes things like a shooting shirt, t-shirt, and shorts.  

Spring Season - Elite

EMW's Elite level teams run from early April through the end of July.  Our Elite teams play in 9-10 tournaments in AAU's Top Tier and in the Prep Hoops circuit.

All our coaches are highly skilled and experienced, but our Elite coaches are the best of the best, with decades of experience winning at the highest levels.

See our Elite Teams page for more details

Fall Season - Standard

Fall Season is shorter and lower-pressure. We don't conduct tryouts for Fall Season.  We fill teams based on interest and for this reason may not have a team at every grade level.  

A typical season runs approximately from early September through mid-October.  Teams practice twice a week and play in 3 tournaments.  Each player receives a gear pack.  The gear pack changes every year but includes things like a shooting shirt, t-shirt, and shorts.
