Bounce United will serve 2 purposes:
Bounce United will be the affiliate 9U-17U program under MI3 Bounce.
Bounce United will be the unsigned senior program under MI3 Bounce.
As an affiliate program, Bounce United will give players the opportunity to be within the MI3 Bounce organization and only play locally in Houston. Players will also have the opportunity to practice with the MI3 Bounce teams as well as a designated practice day for their team. This will allow Bounce United players who do not wish to travel outside of Houston the ability to develop their skills multiple times a week throughout the season. There are no tryouts for Bounce United. The first 10 players to register for each age group will be placed on a team.
As an unsigned senior program, Bounce United will give anyone playing beyond 17U a chance to showcase their skills in front of college coaches. Players on the unsigned senior team will travel regionally and/or nationally based on the skill level of the individual players and team as a whole. We want to give seniors that may have flown under the radar an opportunity to showcase their skills in front of college coaches one last time before graduating high school and enrolling in college.
Teams and organizations also have the opportunity to merge with Bounce United if they feel it is a better fit than merging with MI3 Bounce. If you are a team or organizational leader that is the dominant decision maker and would like to merge with Bounce United, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are a parent/guardian or player and would like to be a part of Bounce United, registration will open in February 2021.
