EXPECTATIONS FOR PARENTS AND PLAYERS
Parents, before you register your child, AAO and your teams’ coaches want all expectations to be clear. This is not a local recreational program. AAO Basketball is a NWA-wide competitive program that utilizes team practices and regional competition to develop young athletes. It simply gives kids that are ready the opportunity to participate in a higher and more intense level of practice, coaching and play. We work closely with your High School basketball coaches in order to prepare your child for their systems. Equal playing time is not guaranteed. Playing time is earned, not given. We ask every player and parent to give their full commitment to the program/team prior to signing up. Unforeseen situations occasionally occur, but we want this team to have top priority! Prepare yourself and your child for a wonderful opportunity for skill development in a positive environment.
Fee includes uniform- top & shorts. You must register in order for your player to receive a uniform. They are custom made for our teams. If you register late, then your child might not have a uniform in time for the games.
REGISTRATION/PAYMENT - registrations are due by Sept. 24.
Cost of the program is $200. All registration is completed online. Make a $200 payment in full or choose a three-payment plan, $80 paid when you register & $60 auto-drafted Oct. 11 and Oct. 25.
