Event Director: Aubery Denard

Aubery graduated from Dominican University in 2010 where he was a two-sport NCAA athlete in basketball and cross country. He helped lead Dominican University’s Basketball program to the most wins in one season and first-ever Northern Atlantic Conference Championship game.

Since he graduated, he has been actively coaching and training basketball athletes at the middle school, high school, college and professional levels. He is currently serving as a Varsity Boys Basketball Coach and a Lower School Physical Education Teacher at the Latin School of Chicago. Aubery has also coached AAU Basketball with a program he started and lead called Chi-City Elite, working mostly with youth teams grades 5-12. He started the program having the goal to help everyone get into college, using basketball as a vehicle and intrinsic motivation. Soon after he joined a program Young&Reckless AAU that has built a reputation for having five or more Division 1 players come out every year. This has helped grow his college recruiting knowledge tremendously.

Aubery has helped run HoopGroup and Five-Star Camps around the country in the past. In those camps, he’s had the opportunity to work with student athletes from all over the world. With Aubery’s energetic and passionate approach while working the exposure events, it’s undeniable the impact he can have on the youth.
