Who are Aussie Elite AAU?

Aussie Elite is an Australian based AAU club which is based in Melbourne (Victoria, Australia). With many of its athletes coming from the South East region of Melbourne, the team is a great regional representation of some of Melbourne’s emerging high school Junior & Senior (Year 11 & 12) talent.

The aim of Aussie Elite is to be the vehicle to provide opportunities for aspiring Australian-based athletes to reach their dream of becoming student-athletes in the US NCAA collegiate system by putting these athletes in the direct line of sight of 80% of all major D1, D2, D3 and Juco coaching staff from the mid-west of America to the West Coast who attend Aussie Elite specific events.

Aussie Elite enter some of the best tournaments on the AAU circuit on the West Coast (Double Pump, Los Angeles, CA) and mid-west (Great American Shoot Out, Dallas, TX) that allow Aussie Elite players to showcase their skills in front of hundreds of college coaches who are in attendance as part of the NCAA’s active recruiting period.

Aussie Elite’s ethos is to deliver a cost-effective AAU experience that is underpinned by High Performance best-practice; a professional approach to athlete welfare in the lead up to and while on tour; and Aussie Elite’s connectivity to the appropriate level of collegiate coaches who are recruiting the type of the athlete Aussie Elite has on its roster.

With coach interest already being generated since Aussie Elite officials completed a research tour in 2015 to many of the AAU events Aussie Elite are entered in for 2016’s tour, organisers look forward to reporting further on scholarship offers and recruitment outcomes of our athletes over the coming months.

Aussie, Aussie, Aussie!!
