October AAU Basketball Report

Well alright then, College Basketball is officially here. Who saw that Duke v. Gonzaga game? (!!!) This will be a good time to release a video I just recovered of what I think was the greatest AAU game of the last 10 years...brought you by yours truly.

By the way, Happy Thanksgiving. High School basketball is cranking and we have some more news to report. At the top of the mountain in the NBA, Lebron last night returned to Cleveland and pulled out a 4 point victory. The Lakers are now 10-7.

IndiWorld News

IndiWorld is our signature year end event, and we concluded IndiWorld3 on June 27-30th, 2018 in Dallas, Texas. This event gives a brief window into the future of our game and for that reason, we kick this off with news on alumni.

News: Press Release on all the details for IndiWorld4 coming on December 15th, 2018.

We do know the date is June 28-30, 2019.

We also do know we are thinking of opening this for the first time to top 6th and 7th grade clubs.News:

Player News

Jacob was covering Paolo at IndiWorld2, so it was great to see him keep following and break this report.

Here is one of his articles from [IndiWorld2].

IndiWorld4 Date: June 28-30th IndiWorld is a place where the whole network can get together [live] at the end of the year

Prayers for Grayson Prewett

We are a family at IndiWorld that looks to support every single part of the event big or small.

We need your help.

IndiWorld is a tight knit family and IndiWorld3 was in Dallas last June.
It was there that Grayson forever became part of the IndiWorld family. We all look out for each other and support everyone involved in their journeys.
Grayson supported me and my event as a dunk contest judge.
We have set up on our platform a way to donate to Graysons fund very easily and we have opened it up to our network as well as all of you.

Everything helps as little as a $5 donation can be made.  You can donate in less than 2 minutes as a 'GUEST'

Testimonials for Coach Brian

Testimonial #1

I wanted to give my full endorsement for Coach Brian. I have Coached for twenty-two years now at the professional, Collegiate, and Elite High School level. I can tell you that I am not a fan of most AAU travel ball and ultimately do not think it holds a high place in the development of our young basketball student athletes.

I can tell you that I am a tremendous fan of The Brian and the way he not only teaches the game; but it is a true family for the patrons involved. They care about the kids, they invest their time and resources into giving people a better product.

The core values, work ethic and confidence that the coaching staff has instilled is monumental in his physical and mental preparation for the future. In closing I highly recommend Brian to kids who love the game and want to build in fundamentals with high character traits. It’s not for just anyone, it’s an opportunity to take your game to another level and to do it with integrity, team work and overall competitive desire!

Sincerely, Tim Cook – Head Coach Life Pacific College

Testominal #2

It has helped with all aspects of basketball -fundamentals, footwork, mentality, leadership and most important TEAMWORK. He remained dedicated to see all players succeed and prepared for the next level of competition. Coach Brian runs San Diego’s classiest and most trusted program that not only brings out the best of who you are but also challenges the person you never thought you can be.

– Jaren Nafarette
