UPDATE AS OF JANUARY 15 AT 7:30 PM:
Tryouts were a huge success in both Nassau and Suffolk.
We are now in the process of selecting the teams and notifying those who made the teams.
These tryouts are designed to fill vacancies on existing teams as well as form new teams. This tryout day provides the best opportunity for motivated athletes to secure a spot on one of our teams.
Lightning Basketball has been in existence for 25 years. We have been recognized as the largest and one of the top AAU programs in the country. Over 600 of our alumni have gone on to play college basketball. We expect to have 300 teams playing this coming season in six states.
Lightning welcomes Under Armour as one of our partners beginning this season.
For more information about what we stand for, please click on the video about Lightning that appears on this home page.
We request that those interested in tryouts register online via a link that will be posted here next week.
