#WCE25 Teams at AAU Nationals by the Numbers

We want to congratulate all Club Teams, Parents, Coaches, and Players who traveled cross-country for DI & DII AAU Nationals. Preparing a young team for a National tournament requires a high level of commitment, dedication, time, practice and money to make a successful run. In the end, the experience and memories gained from participating in such high level events is one most kids, families, and coaches will never forget.

#WCE25 teams had a successful run at AAU Nationals this summer. We wanted to bring an exclusive inside the numbers look at how our teams fared with the hope that the numbers can inspire your organization to plan for an AAU National Trip in 2013. #WCE25 will do its best to again cover AAU Nationals.
