Of course you do. That's a rhetorical question. However, I asked it to remind every parent reading this that you are the biggest influencers in your child's life. And you know that too. So when it comes to deciding should my son or daughter play AAU ball or rep ball or play on the state team or some other organised team here in Australia, you do what's best for your baller in the family. Not what one person says, or an article says, or where you think they "should" be playing. (Here is the best unbiased article I have read about AAU and your role in deciding whether an AAU team is a good fit for your son or daughter.) Take 5 minutes and read it.
Due diligence is key. Ask around. Check out references, websites, the experience and success of the organisation, who is coaching there, their credentials and philosophy of the game, the players who've played there in the past or who currently are playing there. Once you're well informed, go with your gut. This will alleviate the second guessing when things don't look exactly the way you think they should. And believe me, they never do. So trust your judgment, your child's desires and stick with your decision. See it through to the end of the season. If at the end of the season you and your baller want to move on, then choose to do so then. It's OK, because it's your son or daughter, and you know what's best for them.
