HIDDEN GEMS AAU

Hidden Gems AAU will provide a competitive schedule that will include most the big name tournaments in Ohio and surrounding states. Top teams will travel to AAU Nationals in Florida as well.

A respectable coaching staff is in place full of Varsity Level H.S. Coaches from successful programs within Central Ohio. Many of the coaches have played College and Professional Basketball, which allows them to teach from first-hand experiences.

Also our Academic Advisor will be available for summer ACT/SAT Preparation. As always with any Hidden Gems endeavor, "Exposure & Improvement" will be a priority.

All sales are final with no refunds as we provide and expect 100% loyalty on both sides as we move toward our common goals of exposure & improvement.

Half Price Hidden Gems College Placement and guaranteed invite & discount into the Hidden Gems Showcases are added bonuses to all involved players within the organization.

Hidden Gems offers this competitive schedule at a low cost per player that depends on which team you play on in the organization. Teams range from $300-$700 per player. Payments can be made to the P.O. Box or online here: http://www.leaguelineup.com/forms.asp?cmenuid=16&url=hiddengems&sid=1022755010

Travel: Red Roof Inn is the Hidden Gems Basketball Hotel. Players & Parents all save 15% per room. Coaches rooms will be paid for by Hidden Gems for full teams that choose to stay in their team hotel. Teams that choose otherwise will be responsible for 50-100% of the room fees for non-parental coaches.

Hidden Gems AAU teams will be given: 4-12 Top Quality Tourneys, 1-2 Practices per week, Under Armour Reversible Uniform, 3 T-Shirts(1 for Player & 2 for Parents), Large Duffel Bag, BackPack, Gym Sack, Hidden Gems Socks(2 Pair), + Team Shoe Options.
