Developing and experienced players who would like to get an invite to tryout to get on a player path. Which can lead to better placement on Blue Chip Jr NBA competitive teams and/or begin weekly year-round gym training in our BCE Player pool and/or play in local and travel tournaments click here

Coach Laettner and Staff will review player evaluation requests. Select players will receive invite codes to complete the full player application form. Once complete the player will receive their tryout ticket and time. Upcoming tryouts will be held at Freedom Crossing and Patriot Oaks Academy over the next 14 days. There may or may not be an open tryout session. Players will not be admitted without scannable tickets printed or on phone, tryouts are closed and are filmed for staff review.

Players who do not receive an invite code but want to accelerate their development should sign up for the Blue Chip Jr NBA league and participate in all activities and games possible as Coach Laettner and staff maintain evaluation progress of all players throughout the season and will send out invites to players the last week of the season to fill player pool spots that may be open.

Currently, BCE is looking to fill limited player pool spots in 5-6,7-8 & 9-10th grade groups.
