If you have ANY questions.. MY number is listed. Here it is again though: 561-255-7982
To whom it may concern,
I have posted an announcement for a tryout here twice and it has been removed. I see other announcements have not. If I have said or done anything in violation of The Palm Beach Post's forum policy in any way, please notify me. My phone number is listed here, or you can reach me at the email address used to post here. Thanks in advance.
why would a elite AAU team have Tryouts in boca?
why not Boca?
We are also working on the 2nd date to be in West Palm Beach...
is there a problem with WPB as well?
a couple questions coach:
will there be a cost if you make the team
what is the cost to tryout
and why is it necessary to tryout just wondering
thanks alot coach!
Each 1 Teach 1 is a ligit team and they have made a great name for themselves.. Coach howell seems like a nice guy and he's not trying to steal anybody away or anything like that unlike sfe or 561 select. I just have one question is the team sponsored because im looking to try-out but my parents dont have a lot of breathing room financially and I just wana make my dreams come true
Once again... if you have ANY questions... ANY questions... please call me.. 561-255-7982
This team will have sponsorship, will compete at a very high level, & if any cost is involved it will be minimal.. I can guarantee any player that makes it this: you will never be on the road wondering where you will sleep or if you will eat.
Your words of:
" I can guarantee any player that makes it this: you will never be on the road wondering where you will sleep or if you will eat. "
THESE ARE NOT ENCOURAGING WORDS. I AM A PARENT WHO WILL BE WORRYING - I AM MORE WORRIED ABOUT WILL HE BE SAFE ? WHO IS WATCHING OVER HIM ? WHO IS MAKING SURE HE IS BEING CARED FOR ? Eating and sleeping he can do in school if he has to, but what about the big picture here Mr Howell !!!!
I think you may either be over your head in your expectations or you dont have a firm grip on what you are offering. A company as big as Each 1 Teach 1 - which I have heard of, would have a professional announcement in the Palm Beach Post Sports Section or Sun Sentinel. I use this site to catch up on scores (my son plays for Dwyer).
When I checked out their website yesterday, there is no announcment of this tryout or anything about West Palm Beach/Boca, NOTHING, why ?
I would recommend you getting your ducks in a row young man and figuring this out before you reply to these comments and forums.
I applaud your efforts but you should really have the support of the program before you post the ad, just my advice. There are so many scams and shady programs out there, people like to see brick and mortar type programs. I do believe you are with these E1T1 folks, but werent you coaching girls basketball this past basketball season ? Maxpreps.com has you listed there. What is your involvement, maybe if we knew more about you, you may be more credible. You are not listed on the website.
Just giving you my opinion, I am an old school parent who believes in "Jerry Maguire" type people. If you want me to believe in you and you believe in my son, you should do your homework and have come to a few of the games and met me and asked me to get my son involved in your program. I have been approached by coaches from South Florida Elite, Florida Rams and Wellington, all great programs. WE are waiting until his season is over in the next week or so before WE decide where he will plays.
good luck with your future endeavors Mr Howell. I would have sent you this on email but like I said, i couldnt find you on the E1T1 website.
Thank you for your comments & concerns Herb.
There is always a parental concern with the well being of their children on the road, especially if they are unable to accompany them. I myself am a parent. My comment about food and shelter were not exhaustive in scope... of course you watch over kids and make sure they are doing the right things on the road. Any self respecting person with a moral compass would see to that.
I am not coaching either of the teams... merely facilitating this end of it. Connecting Palm Beach and Broward kids...
Coach Gray will be coaching the 15u team... check the website and look to see that there is a 15u Broward team.. but no players listed yet. The 16u has not been posted to the site yet but will be up soon.
I did coach a girls travel team last summer with the Wellington Wolves 16u (State Champs) I was an assistant @ Trinity Christian when we won State 2008. I also assisted last summer in Wellington with the boys 15u where my son played.
I am currenty assisting @ Berean Christian (Boys)
Since you are @ Dwyer... ask Coach Atkins about the girls coach from the 16u Wellington Travel team. He knows me.. and so does Coleman... both great people that I respect over @ Dwyer.
If you are interested in talking to me directly my number is 561-255-7982
Why do we do this coaching/mentoring thing. All these new programs looking for born ready players instead of devolping hardworking players. What are we teaching to each one. Here is what we should be teaching respect,sportsmanship, loyalty the sport of basketball is headed in a bad direction, and its not because the players. All we hear about is kids jumping from program to program looking for WHAT??!!! The idea of travel basketball is to keep kids playing at a high level. Nobody wants to deal with all this BS from coaches about what they can do for you and your child. I dont want to sound like a HATER but its getting a little bit out of control we go around chasing these talented young men, who in reality they dont care why they play as long as they are playing. THE PLAYER SHOULD NEVER BE ABOVE THE GAME!!!!! If you think that this will stop at the next level ask JERRY SLOAN what monster we create with theses young men. AAU coaches across the board need to instill some responsibilty in these young men. Not all of them but most need it. Some kids on these programs cant even have the grades to play in high school, but still end up on your aau roster. I hope we dont forget what is important bc if we do it will be a shame. With that said Goodluck to all wish you all the best this summer.
Mr. Howell.... will players from the palm beach tryouts and players from broward form to join one team..or will there be two?
There are 2 teams... a 15U team... and a 16U team..
There are two tryouts.. those that perform well will be invited back for the 2nd tryout at no additional cost. Each team will be made up of players from both counties.
@ WOW.. E1T1 is not a new program... merely new to South Florida.
I DONT TRUST YOU - OR ANY OTHER PROGRAM THAT USES THE WORD
WHAT MAKES YOU ELITE. ?
Here is the definition of the word Elite:
Elite (occasionally spelled élite) is taken originally from the Latin, eligere, "to elect". In sociology as in general usage, the elite is a relatively small dominant group within a large society, having a privileged status perceived as being envied by others of a lower line of order.
Maybe it is now time for you and all the other idiots who use this word so frequently to come back down to earth.
@ WOW... you have a right to your opinion.. which amounts to nothing more than that... an opinion!
You don't trust me? You DONT know ME to JUDGE me.. that my friend is where the idiocy lies..
And once again... you do have a choice
The Each 1 Teach 1 program speaks for itself....
Winning is a habit.. and so is losing! If you play with and against bad competition/players, that's all you'll ever be, though you'll think you're good because you can run circles around little Jimmy from the neighborhood. That's fine if you want to play rec ball... but if you want to play against the best to see where you stack up, it's not happening with the teams that play and stay local and don't travel beyond 3-4 hours from home!
Let's use a little common sense here. A college coach is very busy and has his/her season going on at the same time as the high school season. If they go to a high school game they may see 1-3 players on the floor who can compete at the next level (depending on the school). However there are 200-300 coaches at the AAU Super Shocase because there are many talented players in 1 location at a time where they can evaluate... (and by evaluate I mean top level players versus other top level players). What a college coach wants to know beyond your academic standing (which is paramount) is how does a player fair against high level competition. They don't care if you were tourney MVP of the Jupiter Jam, Wellington March Madness, or the Slam Fest... (no disrespect to any of those tournaments or tourney directors) It is what it is... Have you ever seen the NY Gauchos, Texas Titans, CP3 All Stars, All-Ohio Red or DC Assault show up to one of those tourneys? How many college recruiters are there?
I will end with this... why don't you withold your judgment and see what transpires rather than making a judgment without the facts? You'll have the entire summer to see whether or not this team is ELITE or not!
i have a few questions.
are you going to post the date and time of the 2nd try out on this website or a different one?
and what is the try out fee if you pay at the door?
if you could answer these questions it would be greatly appreciated thanks
the date is posted with a TBA... if that changes i will notify... call me
OMG coach quit sayin call me answer the damn questions how much it cost to tryout aand how much will the seasoon cost
grow a pair and ask him.. i called him
idc I don't wanna play for the team I'm just curious what sort of rip off he is running and calling a "elite" team I already play for a travel team that would whoop e1t1
What amazes me is the bravery to curse at someone you don't know or know anything about, and demand an answer on a forum board but not enough bravado to make a phone call? A simple phone call... WOW!
For the record, I posted the price before and the Post erased the thread so I don't know if that violates some policy they have... Therefore, I have place my number for anyone who has questions as it relates to the event.
Who are you... & who do you play for? I don't coach either of the teams but I want to make sure I'm in the stands when you play E1T1.. provided that you even play in the same tourneys. I wish you the very best in your travel season and high school career.
South Floirda Elite, a real program.
then enjoy SFE... I don't recall seeing them at the Super Showcase last summer... but good luck this summer and in all you endeavor to do.
Hey what's going on Mr.Howell my name is Torrey Evans I have a question to ask you I wanted to know do u have a spot for another basketball coach on one of your teams iam currently coaching at Conniston Middle School in West Palm Beach I want to get into coaching travel basketball plz contact on my e-mail its email@example.com asap thank you very much Mr.Howell
I play for nike team florida not sfe i dont know who that was ^^
I play for west boca and im interested in trying out. My birthdays in July 1994 does that make the cut for the u16 team
Mr. Howells original post was deleted however it said that his ELITE tryout was $75 but that the team was sponsored. I was the 1st responder asking why he is charging for a tryout and his response was that all Elite teams charged for tryouts. Wow that is soo not the case Mr. Howell. We all know that you won't have the best players because they play on real sponsored teams. Mr. Howell let me give you a tip. Get the good players on your team first and then you get real sponsors. That is where the big money comes in at. You won't do well trying to take a few kids for $75 here and there. Obviously you are not business minded. Talk to a few of the other travel coaches in the area and maybe that will share how they are making their profit off of the kids. BUT you have to get the kids first. Your working backwards.
HI Charles, My son is in 9th grade hes intersted in playing for your team. If he makes your team where will you guys get the money to travel to play Texas Titans and the Cp3 All Stars and where will the practices be held?
@ Me again... if you are going to quote me... please be accurate!! I never said ALL ELITE travel teams charge a fee.... that is a flat out LIE!!
the dollar figure is correct... and the sponsorship is in place!
I know several travel coaches in the area.. as well as middle school, high school, and college coaches in this area and other parts of the country!
Sooo... let me give you a tip.. Don't judge if you don't have the facts!
@ West Boca... if you're in 10th grade you qualify for 16u based on your age
@ Linda Jones... if you would, call me, I would be happy to answer any questions you have.
my apologies to any of you who called me on 2/17... I was in preparation for a regional quarterfinal playoff game.. I will return your calls tomorrow (later today) 2/18
If you call and I'm not available at the moment... PLEASE leave a detailed message along with your number in the message.. thanks
I will repost the original posting of the tryout info...
@ just curious...
The 2nd tryout date has been confirmed.. Sunday 2/27/2011 from 7 - 9 PM @ Berean Christian School located at 8350 Okeechobee BLVD West Palm Beach
Good morning, congrats on Berean BB playoffs.
To whom it may concern:
My son has played for Coach Howell for the Welligton Wolves Travel BB for 2 years in the past. Anyone who knows Coach Howell would not question his honesty or integrity. Those who have done so in this forum show a lack of good judgement.
I'll talk to my son about the tryout, but he has already committed to Travel Baseball for the summer. Good luck and tell your son I said hello.
Big win for Benjamin last night over Coral Springs Christian... Congrats!!!
Tell Jonathan to keep working hard for Cahvallo... he's doing a great job with those boys! I will certainly tell Charles you said hello. They won as well last night.
I will see you soon...
WHY DID YOU LEAVE WELLINGTON MR HOWELL ?
Hello, whats this program gonna serprate from all the other elite teams just because you say your sponsered by Nike and, your team is sponsored by Amare Stoudmire which is probaly fake. Why am i Going to your team where i pay to tryout and what if I dont make it. Thats $75 right out the window! And why would I go to you if its your first year in this? What about Florida Rams whos actually sponsored by Addidas! And wheres the money from the pay to tryout going to? And whys one tryout in Boca the Others over by West Palm Beach.
@ Curious.. unlike LeBron, I didn't need to have a 1 hr special to announce I wasn't coaching in Wellington.. or did I? LOL unbelievable! I won several tourney's with the boys there and won USSSA state with the girls there (working with both teams at the same time I might add)
You can simply call Chris Fratalia (President of WTBA) to find out if I left on bad terms if you like (if thats the scope of your inference). I spoke with him last week about returnig this year. I've decided not to. Chris is a great guy and is doing a great job with Wellington travel. I have nothing negative whatsoever to say about Chris Fratalia, or anyone in WTBA. I had a great time there and will in the future help in any way I can.. and Chris knows that. end of story!
@ Matt Johnson... I guess my prior statements aren't clear enough so let me break it down for you...
1. I am not the coach... of either team
2. if you doubt the sponsorship.. oh well... wait and see
3. if you feel more comfortable going somewhere else... please do... no arm twisting here
4. I've heard from kids from Ft. Pierce to South Broward I'm confident this will be a very very competitive team
5. this is a 2 step tryout... connecting Palm Beach & Broward players.. thus a south tryout date and 1 up here
I hope that makes it crystal for you.
you make an interesting point Matt... "Why am i Going to your team where i pay to tryout and what if I dont make it. Thats $75 right out the window!" that's a legitimate question.
I guess we shouldn't have kids there who cant make their high school team trying out! thereby not throwing "$75 right out the window" as you put it.
Do you think because you pay a fee to tryout it should guarantee you a spot on the team? there are many things you will encounter in life that you will pay a nonrefundable fee. I guess if you go to 5star camp and feel you didn't improve or even make your high school team you should get your money back right? It doesn't work that way in life.
if you can't make your high school team it may be better to a.) work on your skills b.) play a lower level of travel c.) play for a rec team d.) attend some camps & clinics for skill building or e.) all of the above
Last nights game against Coral Springs was an exciting game. Benjamin's defense held firm against a very good team. Sagemont is next, another tough assignment.
Good luck to Berean in ther next game.
I talked with Jonathan about the tryouts. Though he is interested, he has made a commitment to Baseball. Let me explain. Jonathan played travel Baseball from the age of 6 to 13 traveling throughout the country.. To avoid burnout, we tried Travel Basketball when Wellington,s Coach Ward saw him play in middle school & asked him to tryout. It was perfect timing as we both felt he needed a break (and he did need a break) from year round baseball after 7 years. After a 2+ year break from travel Baseball, I'm happy he has committed to a Baseball travel team. Although he plays High School Football, Basketball, and Baseball, he is going back to Baseball for summer travel ball.
Thank you for all the time you have spent Coaching & teaching my son Basketball in the past, also for being a mentor and setting a good example to him. He enjoyed every minute of the time playing basketball with you and Coach Ward, from the practices, to the MILK HOUSE tournaments, and all the other tournaments we played. We both enjoyed the times past... it was time well spent.
You can give my cell # to any parent who needs a reference.
Good luck to Berean next Tuesday & pray for Benjamin -vs- Sagemont. We gotta be 50 point underdogs. Benjamin is discussing not even showing up............NOT !
If I may advise you, do not waste your time responding to insincere emails regarding your tryouts with such long explainations.
Matt Johnson should spend less time on the Basketball court, and more time in English class.
Coach Howell im not considering trying out for ur team but i have a couple question
You never answered matts question about where the money goes
idk about you but for us we have a sponser, tryouts are FREE, along with tournments
why should someone join your team if they have not proved themselves on hope of becoming "elite"
just on a side note...whos confirmed to be playing on your team thats a well known player and i wish you the best of luck this season coach i hope you do well
Thanks to those who came out today... it was a very competitive group of guys. I will see you guys next Sunday @ Berean Christian @ 7PM
Keep Learning, Keep growing, Keep Playing
I have coached against you before and know of your accomplishments and based on that background I have every reason to believe this will be a sound and successful program. As a parent of a potential player, however, I have to note that I have not heard of a tryout fee (at least not a nonrefundable one) for youth travel basketball. All a player can do is have confidence in himself. But since he cannot know in advance what other talent you have amassed, he cannot make an informed assessment as to whether spending $75 on a tryout is a wise decision. Even in the case of a young man who starts on varsity at one of our local schools, that does not necessarily mean that he is good enough to make an elite national travel team. Could you please consider eliminating this fee, or make it refundable if you decided that a player does not make the cut, or explain to those of us who are interested why you would not use one of those approaches? Thank you.
The tryout scheduled for 2/27/11 @ Berean Christian has been CANCELLED.
Whats your age group and Whats the talent going to be like on this team ?
some aau teams decide to make players pay to try out and some dont, its life, if u dont want to pay just simply go to another team and stop stressin this dude out.. e1t1 is a very big program i believe austin rivers played on one of their teams so this isnt any kind of bull crap that hes posting...

mr.howell i am a 3a state champ in washington in the spsl i wish you and your team would lower your standards and come to the pacific north west and get handled by the aau teams up here. i just think that a lot of the hype about the east coast is just a bunch of hee bee gee bee no joke.....im not here to ridicule no one but we got talent up here and we dont have no comp thats just plain and simple....i just happened to stumble upon ypur site but i like your program and liike what talent comes from it....... i think that you have austin rivers on your team but i cant remember if he plays for you guys.......but just puttin that out here that washiungton is far from every where so we cant travel any time soon..so just know come and get a north west a** whoopin if you want we can play any where in washington just know if you cme bring top players cause thats all we have....

Coach, do you have an e-mail address. My phone is broken
The 15's coach is a good man but the 16's seems like a jerk. I do not know their names
YOU HAVE A TRY OUT FOR U17 PLSSSS ANSWER..............................
I am so proud of our teams. E1T1 is winning tournaments. GO TEAMS.
E1T1 16u is a overrated team. almost lost to a rag-tag Delray Blazers team. This team has one true scorer (number 5) and a bunch of head-boosted role players who score 2-4 points a game.
one of their players took one of our players bags and said he put it back in the gym. Their coach just blew off our parent like ok he returned the bag. No specifics on where he put the bag or anything. Oh yay and the bag never turned up! Way to take the bull by the horns coach with your pampered sponsored team
@ fan....rag tag???? wat does that even mean we couldve beat yull wit no problem the funny thing is we had 7 PLAYERS and 3 of them wasnt even real ballers...we was winning by 10 at half we both no wat would have happen if all are players where there..
Yeah, watch your stuff, because they steal...
Learn a little about teams before you open your mouth
First off delray blazers are not a rag tag team
Secondly E1T1 has THREE main players Ivan Canete (5)
Dre Horne a 6'8 bigman who was with the 17u team that will dominate you one of the top sophmores in the country
Joshua Williams a 6'3 PG who was also with the 17s that is a great player and the whole team can play so quit your hating and get in the gym
My name is Preston Owens Harris, im 15 im 6'5
I can play all positions, I currently live in japan right now, buh ill be coming to Florida, I'm trying to find a AAU team to play with, my parents email is firstname.lastname@example.org

@ frank i'm interested in playing for a team that is going to nationals... I'm in the 2015 class
These little kids asking for this "coach" to call them ur idiots. Consider aau basketball like a job, would you ask your employer to contact you?! No you need to call them.
I want to no when is tryouts for 9 and under 2013.
I was interested in finding information for try-outs in the Orlando area, My son received a card from a coach with the E1T1 organization However , there are 7 numbers on the back of the card with not much feed back or return calls. 15u and 16u
hey im 14 years old in 9th grade im a point guard at oak ridge high school and im interested on trying out for e1t1
Does each one teach one elite have tryouts?
The real E1T1 Elite is in Orlando. The closest E1T1 down here that is average is E1T1 Flash. The rest are not good if you want to be on an Elite level of play.
coach steve reece already have his team?
Hey. I am in the 9th grade and wondering if it is too late to tryout for any team?
