Got word that the kid that played with WACG 5th last seaon was in 6th last year(not an exception, straight cheating), now he is playing his right grade, 7th. Some Detroit Elite stuff again. Not to mention Enplay brought a year book showing some kids in 4th grade playing 3rd grade Nationals. Why do you guys keep supporting AAU when they keep cheating your kids?

I say the reason most parents and teams continue to support AAU is because its the best competition and two they feel its the only way for their child to get a D1 scholarship. Once we realize that we dont need AAU but AAU needs us then we will have the tools to form an organization outside of AAU. Its like most things in this USA, example Democrats vs. Republicans same nuts different name, divide the masses and control the pot. Most black folk in AAU want the best for their chil however we all know our parents would have never ever bought into reclassification for sports and the hope of the NBA. Most black folk in AAU that buy into the system of grade exceptions and reclassifications should have raised pure hell to say no thats not what we want for our children. My dad would have never ever let me stay back a grade just to play with boys who were behind me in age and or grade. As a Director of an organization that has boys playing AAU I have to balance the good with the bad and I am looking for ways to improve the system by getting on the decision making boards to help change the rules. At one time in AAU grade exceptions were limited to only two and now you can have a whole team of GE's, why. How did that decision get approved. Once rules are approved then we have to play by the rules, thats why as a coach,GM, Director, Parent or whoever I must play within the rules and compete. Thats why we see the other organizations such as YBOA, USBA, USSSA growing and developing children to compete. Most black folk have not the unity to say ok we see whats happening with AAU and lets start another organization such as UBBPA(United Black Basketball Parents of America). We can keep our teams together and refuse to play in AAU events and only play in UBBPA tournaments. Do you think the college coaches will refuse to sit courtside at our events? Hell no they will be right there cause like I said, AAU needs us we dont need AAU. What do you think these other organizations thought when they started up, in competion with AAU? They had to step out on a limb. Most black folk involved with AAU are looking for a comeup or options for their child cause times are changing, no longer do they have to wait and go to college and spend for tuition if they have a child that can develope into a NBA player. Me included, I love this game, however I realize that the AAU system rewards academic failure plain and simple. So why stay in AAU? I stay cause my brothers and sisters are here and I want them to wake up and realize that WE GOT THE POWER, and I want us to say ok I see whats happening in AAU and lets do it. I'm with you lets UNITE and form our own organization to not compete against AAU but rather to develope our children to compete at the highest levels in a system that promotes academics over failures. But like most things here in America and from what I read on these blogs, most black folk here are lacking the unity to join forces and go to Nationals with a unified force. The rules of AAU allow for players to join with other teams and go to Nationals with other teams from the same state and up to a tri state area. We cant even do that yet, WHY? Because of coaches and organization leaders, and parents? Is it the glory of a organizational AAU championship? Is it the coaches ego? Is is coaches afraid of losing players for next year? Is it parents realizing their son wont be good enought to make the all star team traveling to nationals? Is it the leaders of AAU organizations living off the money they charge parents to be a part of their AAU team? Only you know the reason. For me its a ministry, AAU, YBOA, USBA, USSSA. I have to save our youth, AAU or whatever cause I know that through athletics I can teach order,control,coordination,discipline. I can teach a player to play with honor, integrity, respect and tolerance. Thats why I stay, however I am ready at the drop of a dime to not go the path that others have created but to go where there is no path and create a new path, the UBBPA(United Black Basketball Parents of Ameerica). The characters of the name can change but the principle remains the same. Its about UNITY!!!!!!!
This guy is flat out ridiculous. Could you imagine the uproar if whitey posted this same post but put "White" instead of "Black"?
The United White Basketball Parents of America . That would be accepted I'm sure. This guy is part of what is wrong with AAU Basketball. Everything constantly about race with some. Sad. Move on. Glad to see racism is alive and well from BOTH sides.
Here's a mindblowing exercise Lord of Racism Nacep: Stop segregation. Consider naming it United Basketball Parents of America.
Its not about race as I said its the principle thats the focus. Grade exceptions and reclassification of children for sports. I put out a name because black is who I am and I love all people. I said the name can change but the principle remains the same. I like what the other blogger said. The United Basketball Parents of America. Dont get caught up with semantics, let your mind evolve toward unity not separation. I have and recruit daily from all diverse groups within our organization. Look at our teams some of the most diverse within AAU. Remember for every positive there is a negative and for every problem there is a solution. I allways seek to look for the solution to the problem at hand, which in this case is understanding the nature of sports in general and how for most of us it is a means of teaching youth life skills that will carry on way past sports and into making children productive citizens in the world and making a contribution to the world whether its high flying in the NBA or working in the school system. There will allways be ones afraid of when unity occurs amongst the masses because of the realization that with unity there is power, with power there is freedom, with freedom there is equality, with equality there is love, with love there is peace, with peace there is happiness. Now lets stay focused on Unity!!! Making sure any organization that we invest our children in have their best interest at hand. Peace
Everyone knew Detroit Elite was cheating and after years of cheating AAU stepped in after it was to obvious. Why did it take this long? Why do organization continue to sit back and never speak up against teams like that? Its not about reclassing or unlimited grade exceptions, its about organization using kids that are older and winning. . Kids go to school with the cheaters and still nobody speaks up. Why is AAU not held accountable?
Now this is what blogs are intended for, not all the negative banter that it's been used for the past couple of weeks! If people post positive informative stuff on the blogs like the last few post then I'm sure that the blog won't be as popular! But it will be void of all the drama, the hate and the ridicule as well.
UNITY Unity is a by product of linking the thought process of a common interest. It can be found by being open minded and stepping out of oneself to gain freedom of understanding that the world will go on with or without you, in addition to realizing that you can attain all that you need by giving others what they need. It is the acknowledgement of total awareness that without others nothing can be accomplished. It is a place where one can find peace and harmony provided that all parties are spiritually fit and have a vision and wisdom to realize their dreams. For us it's only words spoken and not acted upon. We must stand strong and take a profound action in putting together our lives through the process of being bold enough to realize and accept the fact, of the utmost importance of being associated and fine tuned to develop a plan of action that puts us all in one accord, never forgetting to place God first in all our affairs, allways being reminded of our own life source, which is family. We must make an effort today to stand strong, take action, know to fight the enemy, which in our case is division. although we must be diversified in our thoughts, but committed to UNITY in our actions. We must no longer engage in single mindedness. For if this is the action or process of living we choose we loose. There is not a single form of achievement that can be accomplished without the give and take process. But today we have a choice, do we go it alone? For the statement still stands, "Together We Stand and Divided We Fall". With UNITY of mind, body, and spirit the burden is lifted and singleness can be defeated, if we know and place our thoughts and actions to the benefit of all. Where do you stand today in your city or town, with your team/s and fellow coaches, parents, and supporters? In UNITY or in singleness, the later only creates fear, despair and loneliness. We stand at this moment where help is available if we only ask, if we only share and care for one another as we do for ourselves. (This was shared to me by my friend and brother Todd Alexander). Within any major organization or group there exists sub groups that share a common interest. Within the Political parties in America there exists PAC's, special interest groups and coalitions that have a commonality within the sub group. That commonality is what they identify with and share to the larger group on issues that affect them. Within the major four organizations such as AAU, USBA, USSSA, YBOA there is a need for special interest groups that address specific concerns that affect that commonality of those involved. Peace
I actually did some research over the topic because I heard the rumor at nationals this year, if you look him up followed by brentwood Academy it says camron is a 7th grader at brentwood academy along with his teammates darius G and Gavin S
Looks like he has straight A's as a 7th grader so that at least proves that while maybe learning how to cheat, his parents have enough sense to let someone else teach him how to use his brain. In fairness, he could be a super young 7th grader playing his age....I'm sure I'm wrong on that based on this groups track record, but who's counting right?
See this is why heads get "SLAPPED" because of lies like this!!! New York Gouchos, CB Spiders, AIA, HAVOC, WACG , all have been accused of cheating because all these teams have good players and coaches!! Understand that. We aint ran into a team good enough to make us have to cheat!! So stop bad mouthing us and our kids!! WACG 2013 NATIONAL CHAMPS!!!!
