High School AAU

Our SHA AAU program has become one of the premier programs in the state of New Jersey. Players will compete in tournaments, leagues, and weekly practices run by both Coach Mergin and Jaren Sina. We select elite level players from some of the top high school programs in Northern New Jersey. Our teams participate in high level regional tournaments such as the BBallshootout, Hoop Group showcase events, as well as the AAU Live events which would give exposure to college coaches. Our goal is to help our players develop their skill and talent, while also showcasing their ability in front of high school and college coaches. The exposure we have provided to our athletes has helped many land Division 1 scholarships, as well as Division 2 and Division 3 commitments.

Our Goals

  • Develop a Winning Attitude
