One character quality that often isn’t discussed in AAU basketball is VULNERABILITY.

I heard Jake Locker define it as:

Vulnerability: Willing to be known by others. And willing to engage in something in which you may not succeed. 

In many ways AAU basketball exposes who we are. It exposes our character. And provides opportunities the practice character-building moments.

And being vulnerable to try to new things, test a new skill, or develop a new skill is being vulnerable.

And that vulnerability builds our character.
