AEF Academy currently has OPEN ENROLLMENT for our 2024-2025 Fall/Winter season! By registering now, AEF athletes receive discounted fall/winter fees, a free skills camp and academy over the summer months,  and access to open gym at no additional cost through March 2025! 

All registered athletes will be placed on teams that match their ability level after our Player Evaluation / Team Placement Camp August 5-8. While a first payment is due at time of registration to secure your athlete’s place in our program, the balance will not be run until AFTER team placement occurs in August.


COACHES ARE KEY!  Player development begins with their coach! AEF coaches are under the direct supervision of Coach Beck and are evaluated multiple times throughout each season.  In addition to being skilled and knowledgeable, they communicate positively with our athletes, turning mistakes made into immediate learning opportunities.  All AEF coaches must pass an annual background screening and complete our Abuse Prevention Program.

AEF PRACTICES – AEF practices are held in our NEW 3-court facility, located at 99th Circle and Portal Road in Papillion. AEF practices are held two nights per week, with each practice running 90 minutes. Each team shares a court with another team of similar age/ability, which allows us to put our offensive and defensive team concepts into motion.  Coach Beck is on the practice floor for the majority of all practices each week, and all coaches teach the game progressively and in the “AEF Way!”

COMPETITION – All AEF Academy teams play a competitive game schedule, with the number of games dependent on grade level. 

The number of games each team will play varies based on grade level:

  • 2nd/3rd grades – 24 – 27 games, with league play in the fall and winter seasons, as well as a couple of local tournaments.
  • 4th/5th grades – 30 – 35 games; League and Tournament combination; 1 travel tournament for most teams
  • 6th/7th/8th grade – 38 – 42 games;  League and Tournament combination; 2 travel tournaments for most teams

For tournaments that require travel, families are responsible for getting their athletes to tournaments, as well as for their accommodations and meals. 

ADDITIONAL OPPORTUNITIES FOR DEVELOPMENT –AEF Summer Camps and Academies allow for additional opportunities for skill development outside of the traditional fall/winter season, enabling our players to continue to grow and develop over the summer months!

Registered athletes are encouraged to participate in the AEF Skills Camp held in early June. This camp will focus on the fundamentals, and athletes will learn specific drills to run on their own this summer, giving them an edge over the competition. 

Summer Academies are 90 minute skill sessions that occur twice per week in June and July. AEF athletes may participate in an academy of their choice at NO ADDITIONAL FEE!
