Picking the right AAU team for your child is very important. The best thing to do when looking for a AAU team is to have a set of goals that has to be met. Some of these goals should include development, overall experience, college recruiting beginning with 9th grade, and what are the AAU teams goals and priorities. 

Picking a AAU team should not just be about the team but it should also be about the organization. You need to find out if the organization and it's teams fits your child's future goals. You also need to find out if the way the organization and it's teams playing style is a good fit for your child's playing style.

If you are able to say "Is this situation a good fit for my child" instead of just hoping he earns a roster spot will be very empowering for you as you go through this AAU journey.
