It All Started with a Vision

Co-Directors Beau Scott and Will Staal, former teammates and students at North Central High School, explored the idea of forming an AAU team in the summer of 2010.  A few short months later, the first ever Northside Spartans team was formed.  From that point on, the program has flourished.  What started with one team of 7th and 8th graders has blossomed into one of the premier AAU basketball programs in the state.  Over a dozen former Spartans have gone on to play college basketball while many in our 2018 class are still reviewing college offers. 

This season, our legacy continues.

With the Northside Spartans, your AAU experience is different.  We strive to help each player improve through weekly practice centered around skill development and competition in high level tournaments.  Our coaches don't disappear once the AAU season is over.  We're there to provide support and guidance to our players during their school seasons as well.  Our coaches are all young men who coach for the love of the game and for the love our players--not dad's who put their son's interests over other players.  Our coaches are required to maintain excellent communication with their players and parents throughout the season to provide an enjoyable, hassle-free, AAU experience.

Our Mission

We strive to provide Indiana boys with an excellent AAU basketball experience through regular practices, workouts, and competitive tournament play.  It is our duty to help each and every Spartan improve, whether they're still learning the game and developing skills or they're honing their skills for a college career.  Our goal is to provide a family atmosphere that encourages communication and support across all our Spartan teams, regardless of age or level.
