There are a lot of options available in the Pittsburgh AAU scene. Some are high in intensity, commitment and competition, others centered more on individual skill development, and still others on team building and fun. SLAAM Basketball is a highly competitive, nationally respected AAU program.
SLAAM holds tryouts in early January for all teams - high school tryouts are non-contact. SLAAM Tryouts are run by our team coaches, these coaches are responsible for selecting the teams. Teams are selected based on a number of factors including: work ethic, hustle, attitude, shooting, passing, dribbling, rebounding, and defensive skills. We strive to have these teams solidified within 5 days of the final tryout.
SLAAM plans to field at least 2 highly competitive teams at every AAU level from 3rd to 11th grade. Team numbers can vary depending on interest and ability, we will not field teams that we don't feel will be competitive, so the number of teams can vary from year to year.
TRYOUTS ARE CLOSED FOR THE 2019 SPRING SEASON - IF YOU BELIEVE YOUR DAUGHTER HAS WHAT IT TAKES TO JOIN THE SLAAM FAM - PLEASE CONTACT JAMAL WOODSON @
