Spring/Summer ’22 AAU Tryouts

AAU TRYOUTS for our 8th Year of DBA DRIVE Basketball – All Ages!

 REGISTER HERE *For a $20 tryout fee you can attend one or BOTH tryout sessions*
Come to one or both tryout sessions for one low fee, two basketball workouts for the price of one.

We will be forming teams for boys and girls starting in grade 4 through 8 and highly competitive High School teams again this spring/summer with DBA Drive Basketball.  Last year we formed both Tournament and Travel teams that participated in high level AAU events and/or NCAA Recruiting Period events.  Our tournament teams play local & Bay Area tournaments while our travel teams will also play outside of the area in Los Angeles, Reno, & Las Vegas.

In recent years we’ve had 18 highly successful teams in our and have repeatedly sold out fall and winter sessions as well. Thus, we intend to field another 18 teams for boys/girls and will be selecting top players from our tryouts to form one-to-two teams per age level and approximately 4-6 High School teams.

This is a tryout for a competitive AAU basketball club team and not everyone is selected for a team. We will be having multiple tryout dates but it is highly encouraged that you come to the first available tryout in your age group and suggest you attend multiple tryouts so that our coaches can get to know you better.


  • Register for tryouts and/or email coach@dbadrive.com to alert Coach Denker of your interest in playing AAU as soon as the HS season ends, let us know the school and team you are playing on right now and if you’ve ever played AAU or DBA AAU before.  (Example: John Jones, 6’0 Forward, 10th grade, Pioneer HS, JV Team, played DBA AAU last year)
  • If your school are not currently playing HS ball, but want to play AAU, you should come to tryouts now and plan to start AAU, in late March, when we begin
  • If you are a Frosh or JV level HS player your season will likely end February 14-16th.  We will have a High School ONLY tryout at that time but you should sign up to express your interest NOW.  It is against CIF HS state & section rules to tryout for AAU while playing HS basketball, our tryouts will be held once your season ends.
  • Our HS AAU teams will play April, May, and July tournaments with June Training Sessions and Scrimmages.  This schedule allows you to focus on your High School team/program’s “summer league” and expect you to participate.  We will hold Practices, Skills Training, and Scrimmages on off nights through June to prep for our July events.
