Hope everyone is having a great summer! As I write this it’s 90 degrees outside, extremely humid and a huge thunderstorm is on the way. Though there’s still a good deal of summer left it’s time to start planning for basketball tryouts and the Fall AAU Basketball Season of 2016.
The NH Gym Rats program focuses on fundamental skill development that takes players to the next level. We are NOT a recreational program and are looking for top notch players. Every effort will be made to ensure players have an opportunity to demonstrate their basketball abilities during the tryout period and will be evaluated on: Ball Handling, Shooting, Passing, Demonstrating a positive attitude, work ethic, knowledge of the game and satisfactory academic performance.
Basketball Tryouts will be held at Conant’s Pratt Gym on Saturday September 10, 2016.
On-site cost is $20.

NEW: Black Nike Uniforms Will Be Required for the Fall Basketball Season.
The 2016 Spring Season was the last season for using the red uniforms. For those players who need a black uniform the cost will be an additional $95. All uniform orders will be handled by Bulldog in Keene, NH. A link to their online store will be provided once the store is available.

We try hard to keep our program affordable. The fees for the fall season will be between $200 and $250 per player and will depend on the number of tournaments/days chosen by the coach and team. Other similar programs like the NH Spartans – fall season fee is $350.
