Heart of Illinois AAU Program is Central Illinois only program to consistently send girls teams to AAU State and for the past 4 years AAU Nationals. We compete at the highest level spring/summer basketball has to offer. We have and continue to receive invites to some of the top competitive tournaments nationwide.

Every season we look to improve our program to further help players develop to reach their highest potential on the court. This year we will be focusing on elite levels only for our girls teams and continuing to grow our boys division.

Our girls teams this season will face a stronger/more competitive schedule to prepare for the highest level of competition. Our girls teams will combine individual skill workouts, strength and conditioning, and team practices to develop all of the important aspects to improving as a complete player.

Our boys teams continue to grow in competitiveness not just locally but throughout the Midwest. With coaching staffs that have continuously been in our program over the past 4 years our boys teams keep growing and improving. Our goal moving into next season will be to continue to develop our boys teams to be competitive in AAU tournaments. Our boys teams will continue to enhance their schedules to face stronger/more competitive competition to prepare for their school teams and higher level competition. Our boys teams wills combine individual skill workouts, strength and conditioning opportunities, and team practices to develop all the important aspects to improving as complete player.
