After a weekend of 🇺🇸 AAU in Bellevue (after a long two year break) we had one of the best practices we've ever had at DRIVE.

The Pacific Northwest (Seattle and surrounding areas) has some of the best AAU basketball in the entire world. We finally got the chance to compete with programs like FOH, Idaho Select, Oregon Prospects & more. It was exactly what we needed!

Tons of lessons learned and a great opportunity for us to see what we need to improve on moving forward this summer.

We have some of the most humble & hardest working players we've had in our program. Some really talented players who got their first exposure to high level AAU in a long time!

We love the guys we have this summer and are looking forward to a great AAU season.

Next stop California for our older teams & Vancouver Tip-Off Local AAU Event for all our other teams.

Summer AAU is about to get busy! 🔥🙏🏀🇨🇦 #DriveFam
