The Grosse Pointe Lakers-(GP Lakers), a registered AAU club, will begin their 7th season on December 13th with tryouts for new and returning players. This season will look a bit different than previous seasons due to the pandemic, but we are pleased that we can offer a chance for the kids to be in the gym this winter!
This season, there are not as many opportunities for teams to get traditional games at Harper Woods or Lakeview High Schools. Lakers teams could and most likely have to travel-(30 minutes to an hour) to get quality and skill appropriate games. Games would be played on Saturdays or Sundays. The Lakers will offer AAU tryouts and full team sign-ups for individual boys & girls, 2nd--6th. Each team will have the opportunity to compete in 15-20 games and have as many as 20-25 practices.
Returning Player: Players that have played for the Lakers in the past are required to attend the tryout process to be re-evaluated for the 2020-21 season. There is no cost for tryouts for returning players, but each player must register for tryouts for the new season at http://gplakers.com/register.html
New Player Tryout/Evaluation process: Tryout dates and times are below; locate your child's grade, tryout time and day. Please arrive at least 20-25 minutes early, to check-in and get prepared for the tryout process. Tryouts will be held at the Grosse Pointe Academy. Entrance for the GPA gym is located in back of the school, by the circle drive. Register for tryouts at http://gplakers.com/register.html
