El Paso Generals AAU Basketball 2016
Organized by: Anson Jordan
The El Paso General's Basketball Team wants to continue to provide a quality AAU sports experience at an affordable cost; yet, there are significant expenses related to competing at the AAU level. While families are generally aware of the requirement for some financial commitment, due to the national landscape of AAU basketball, it is a tremendous challenge to predict the annual costs of travel, hotels, meals and other ancillary items. To that end, El Paso General's Basketball Team is looking to reduce reliance on participant fee-based revenues and look toward contributions from other sources including traditional fundraising activities, corporate sponsorships and gifts to support our program. This approach will enable us to meet our objective of keeping fees affordable while continuing to develop world class athletes.
The El Paso General's Basketball Team is a select Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) team that serves the youth of El Paso and the surrounding areas. Our affiliation with AAU, allows us to expand the recreational and competitive opportunities for youth throughout the calendar year unlike county and other seasonal sports programs. El Paso General's Basketball seeks to promote health and fitness, improve athletic skills, provide valuable social exposure and offer practical experiences in teamwork, sportsmanship, diversity and leadership. Our youth are exemplary athletes who strive for both academic and athletic excellence. El Paso General's Basketball is a premier provider of youth sports experiences and seeks to make participation available and affordable to interested athletes who rise to the challenge of playing AAU basketball. We believe that an athlete should be able to participate regardless of race, religion, creed or financial status. El Paso General's Basketball is dedicated to helping youth channel their passion for basketball to create positive experiences for themselves and others in their communities. Our athletes are involved individually and collectively in community outreach.
