The Lady Prospects AAU Basketball Club 2014 Fall Open Gyms will begin Sunday, September 7th. Open gyms are designed to help athletes prepare for the upcoming school basketball season and are open to all 6th thru 12th grade girls. They are also open to all non-members of the Lady Prospects. We encourage you to bring friends or teammates that are looking to improve their game, maybe looking for a program next year, or just want to play some basketball to get ready for the upcoming school season.
The Fall Open Gyms consists of playing "pick-up" style games in an organized setting. Each athlete can expect to play 8-10 games during the two-hour session. Last year we had over 70 athletes participate over the 6-week open gym period.
Our Fall Open Gyms are also a great opportunity to be seen by college coaches. Last year we had coaches from both NAIA & junior colleges in attendance.
Thank you and we'll see you on the court!!
