I love what @brycestanhopetraining
is saying right here. I've seen it, as an AAU coach, where kids played for up to FIVE teams in the AAU circuit; of course, a few teams were to just play a game here and there OR just to get a practice in here and there. It's crazy!!!
• It's partly AAU organization and coaches' fault too for those that get caught up in TAKING players and not MAKING players. Frankly, as someone into development more than anything, I quit coaching AAU. Sad to see players trying to just play games and get notoriety, which I totally get. In the current structure, you need to make a name to get attention from schools.
• However, if you're not actually taking the time to develop, marinate skills, and immerse yourself in the nuance of the game also... it's a waste. Not everyone has the otherworldly talent like a @kingjames
, but guess what, even they work harder than most, which is why they're consistently excellent. If you know what's up, give me an amen! 😂
