Being a mother of 2 boys who play both school and AAU basketball, I have to say that I absolutely love every moment and experience of AAU basketball. AAU basketball has a certain intensity and exciting environment that stays with you forever. However, when my boys first started playing on the AAU level, my husband and I were certainly not aware or ready for what we were about to face (evil laugh).
Unfortunately, there aren’t any social groups or blogs to help you become better informed of what to expect as a first time or new AAU travel parent…..until now!!! Thanks, Baller Mom Blog!
Ok, back to the spill. Basketball moms are not the ones doing suicides on the court, going over plays every day, or playing for 24+ tough minutes a game. However, we do dedicate countless hours of travel time and money. Did I mention that we spend money? I mean bring out the Benjamins.
In AAU travel ball, you will be responsible to pay a fee to play, which can range from $350-$1000+...
