We would like to make a statement on the matter of rules, compliance and the actions of others that have caused many to take issue with AAU basketball in the macro and with a team or coach in the micro: Not only do we know the rules (both the letter and spirit) we wholeheartedly pledge/endeavor/mandate ourselves to follow them without fail every day that ends in a "y." We maintain a higher standard for ourselves than others expect of us. In all matters, we live by the Golden Rule in addition to Rules #1 and 2.
17u Krumins Team - Beginning the week of March 17 (players are allowed to participate only once their hs team has completed their CIAC season) 2 nights a week in Fairfield or Bridgeport running through May 21.
16U CT - Scott Team will play as 17's and practice in Westport and Darien.
16u NY - Brown Team will play as 16?s and practice at Sarah Lawrence similar the 17u Rubin Team (above)
Remember To Have Fun
Acquiris Quodcumque Rapis
Proper Preparation not only Prevents Poor Performance, it puts us in a position to succeed. That is our goal!
Our Teams are in a focused training program to become professionals, albeit in something other than basketball. Their route will take them through one of the many fine colleges or universities renowned for their high standards of academic excellence and the proven success of their basketball program.
Our basketball players are focused on the end-goal of becoming professionals, at which time basketball will still be played for passion after all their work is done for the day. Like everything they do, they take it seriously and perform with both full effort and enthusiasm. That approach has gotten them to where they are today and is what will drive and motivate them on their own personal roads towards success.
Over the past 15 years, players involved with the programs have gone on to play (or are on their way to playing) at Bowdoin (4), Hamilton (3), Middlebury (6), Williams, Tufts, Bates, Colby, Trinity, Wesleyan (3), Connecticut College (3), Vassar (2), RPI (2), St Lawrence (4), Union (3), Bard, Swarthmore (2), Franklin & Marshall, Washington College, MIT, Babson, Clark, Rochester (2), Case Western, Carnegie Mellon, Wash U, Brandeis, NYU (2), Grinnell (3), Kenyon (2), Denison, Macalester, Washington & Lee, Birmingham Southern, Sewanee, Colorado College (2), Claremont McKenna (3), Pomona, Sarah Lawrence, Emmanuel, Franklin Pierce, American, Rice, Depaul, Fairfield, Furman, Vanderbilt, Elon, Holy Cross, Colgate, Binghamton, UMBC, Monmouth, Sacred Heart (2), Quinnipiac (2), FDU, Duke (2) and UConn.
In addition to the basketball players, several members are at schools in these same conferences and haven chosen to play a different sport. However they got there, the exclamation mark is on their success in having gotten into the schools of their respective choices.
