International Tours

Each August, players from Team Carolina AAU have the exclusive opportunity as the official United States representation to attend International Showcase Events in Europe and the Caribbean. In 2015, our players Grade 7 thru 12 will have the opportunity to attend the Atlantis Bahamas Tropical Shootout, a special International Basketball Tournament for Middle and High School Boys/Girls. More information can be obtained below.

Bahamas Tryout Results
Congratulations to all the players who attended tryouts for the Middle School and High School teams traveling to the Bahamas this August! The turnout was fantastic and decisions were extremely difficult. We truly wish we could take everyone, however, we are under strict limitations this tour. As such, we are pleased to announce the following individuals have been named to the traveling teams. For the Middle School Team, we have listed the first alternate, subsequent alternates have also been named in rank order, but are not shown on this published team roster. Also, for the middle school, we took into account creating a balance between both the grade 7 and grade 8 age groups. The individuals named to the team will be receiving further documentation by this Thursday, April 23, along with pertinent tour details and the fund raising letter that players may begin utilizing immediately to help raise support for their trip. A followup meeting this Sunday for all named participants and their families is in the process of being scheduled and will be provided to you with your selection packet Thursday, April 23.
