Give & Go Mentoring Program
by Coach Wiese posted 11/15/2021
Congratulations to 7-1 and 8-1 on their play in the Eagan tournament this past weekend. Good luck to all teams this weekend in either Prior Lake or Lakeville North.
 
I wanted to make sure you all know about my Give & Go Mentoring Program.  By mid week next week I will have formed my high school teams. After doing so I will assign each high school player a youth team, travel or in house.  The high school players will pop in at some practices and come to some games of their mentee teams.  I love how this program connects our youth with our high school players.
We have a couple of mentoring events that we want all youth to attend.  The first is Mentor Match Up/Pizza Night on Monday November 22 from 5:45 to 6:30 in the East Commons of the High School.  All the youth girls will meet their mentors, share pizzas, and get to know each other.  We so hope that everyone can attend! 
 
Our next mentoring event will be our Community Service day on January 17, 2022 from 10-11am in the East Commons. During this time the mentors and mentees do things such as writing notes to servicemen/women or creating Valentine’s to distribute at a senior home. 
Please mark these two events on your calendars.  
 
Each travel team will have a varsity home game where they will be the spotlight team. They will arrive early, come into the locker room prior to the game, get introduced before the game and sit behind the bench during the game. Please make sure you know which night this is for your daughter.  
 
The success of Give & Go depends on the participation of our youth so please make every effort to have your daughter attend the above events. Thank you
 
 
 
AAU Mega Tryouts

Great to see Travel teams up and running and looking forward to getting the In-House teams formed.  

I have used this forum before to get out information on girls’ basketball AAU.  If you are interested in getting your daughter on an AAU team there is a great opportunity to do at the Mega Tryout. The link is below and everything is well explained. If you have any questions you can always contact me at

AAU Season & Tryouts
by Coach Wiese posted 7/29/2021
Parents and Players:
 
I wanted to reach out to you all about AAU.  As many of you know the girls’ AAU season runs from March until the end of July for the older girls and until mid June or early July for the younger girls. I believe the AAU experience can and should be a wonderful one for girls who are serious about basketball. What is vitally important is who your daughter will have as a coach and the philosophy of the club.  
 
AAU is indeed a big time commitment and girls have to be dedicated to the sport to want to practice a few times per week and play on weekends during the summer. But for those who really want to take their game to the next level, meet new teammates, and travel a little, AAU is  a wonderful opportunity.
 
Most MN clubs have teams starting for 4th graders thru juniors.  For tryout information you can go the clubs’ websites. Please note that whether you play AAU or not has absolutely no bearing on me and forming EP high school teams.  It is just like my youth clinics—an opportunity to improve your game if you so desire.  I have had so many EP parents say they didn’t know anything about AAU so i wanted to offer my knowledge and resources to those who want to pursue this route.  I am connected with MN Metro Stars but other clubs to look at:
 
  • MN Fury
  • North Tartan
  • MN Stars
  • Crossfire
  • The City
  • MN Suns
  • MN Comets
  • MN Heat
  • TC Takeover
 
to name a few.  Again, any questions please let me know at
