Hoop Dreamz AAU is for the serious and competitive basketball player who wants to improve his or her game in every aspect. For those who are committed to the sport beyond the winter season, we offer high-level AAU programs in the fall, spring and summer based out of Bergen County, NJ.
From mandatory tryouts, to trusted teamwork and challenging tournaments, our athletes learn important skills that help them succeed both on and off the court. Hoop Dreamz AAU players build confidence through competence – as they receive the best in basketball instruction from our highly qualified and experienced staff of coaches who have competed and coached at high school and collegiate levels.
We are proud to have helped many players fulfill their “Hoop Dreamz” of playing in college. Click here to see a list of former Hoop Dreamz players who have gone on to play at the next level – all from Bergen and Rockland counties!
