We are the ELITE AAU club on the east side of Cincinnati, the only club that can offer our teams a 5 court facility for practices, training, skills and drills, league and tournament play.

Tryouts for Cincy Elite teams are held 4 times throughout the year.

Our program currently offers boys grades 3 – 10 and girls grades 3 – 10 year-round practices, games, and training sessions.  Every athlete that competes in our program will be taught the proper fundamentals of basketball, sportsmanship and team play.  As a coaching staff, we will focus on basketball skills and individual player development so that players are put into a position to succeed.  Players will be shown and taught drills and encouraged to work on their own to maximize their individual improvement.  Not only is our club focused on our players excelling in their basketball success but we focus on using this as a training tool to help guide them in their everyday life.  We want each player to be the best they can be and in order to do that, they have to come in with a winning attitude.

Our club is not a travel team club.  We play our games and tournaments at Nothin’ but Net.  Teams may play additional games elsewhere but that is determined by the coach and the team (at an extra cost to the team)
