Partnership Announcement

We are incredibly excited to announce Spartz Sportz as the official training partner of Mercury Elite!

Spartz Sportz has helped basketball players from across the globe develop their skills for the past 8 years and has a proven track record of success. Spartz Sportz athletes have played for 19 NBA Organizations, 13 G-League Organizations, and over 120 colleges and universities across the country.

At Mercury Elite, we have always worked to provide our athletes with opportunities to grow their skills, knowledge, and love for the game of basketball. Christopher Spartz and Spartz Sportz are aligned in that vision and will provide immeasurable value to our athletes! We are thrilled to welcome them to the #mercsquad family.


For 16 years, we have worked with high school hoopers and have been committed to growing their skills, knowledge, and love for the game of basketball. The results speak for themselves: 200+ Players have gone on to play college basketball at 100+ Colleges and Universities.

Now, we plan to take this approach with the 3rd - 8th grade boys and start making an impact even younger!


We are SO PUMPED to announce our brand new Mercury Elite Youth Program!

A little about the Youth Program:

All teams will be trained by Spartz Sportz trainers and coached by current college athletes who either played for Mercury Elite, are trained by Spartz Sportz or both! Spartz Sportz has worked with athletes over the past 8 years who have gone on to play for 19 NBA organizations, 13 G-League organizations and 120+ colleges and universities! We are thrilled to be partnered with them and commit to helping kids for years to come. It’s through Spartz Sportz proven training methods that we can guarantee growth for our younger players!

Tryouts and Practices for our Youth Program will be run out of Western Springs and the surrounding area!

The season will run from May through July.

Practices will be twice per week and we will play in 8 events locally!

If you were unable to attend the first tryout date for your age group, we will be having a second tryout date on February 25th. You can register for our tryouts under 2024 Youth Summer Team Tryouts!

We can't wait for the 2024 Spring/Summer AAU season! High Schoolers (15U/16U/17U): you can sign up NOW for our Sunday evening evaluation sessions! 

Our Players have gone on to become National Champions, Collegiate All-Americans, Conference MVPs, All-Conference athletes, school record holders, and professional basketball players!

The Countdown to Our 2024 AAU Season is ON!
