ACYS Basketball Registration is Now Open
Registration for ACYS Basketball for the 2017-18 season is now open for boys and girls ages 5 thru 12. Athletes can register online on the ACYS website or In Person. Teams will fill up fast and space is limited so please register early to make sure your athlete gets to participate.
Our Recreation (Rec) teams will interleague with local towns like White Settlement and a few others like we have always done. Our Rec teams are drafted teams and will be formed by age groups (6u, 8u, 10u, 12u) this year.
We are also offering basketball for 7th and 8th grade boys and girls. These teams are select teams and will be formed by grade. Our 7th and 8th grade teams must have an experienced Head Coach to compete in our select league. The Head Coach will decide what players are selected to those teams and at what level the team plays. The practice and game schedules for our 7th and 8th grade teams will NOT conflict with the school schedule.
ACYS Basketball proudly supports the Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) and the Positive Coaching Alliance (PCA). ACYS Basketball Coaches are required to register with AAU (cost $16) and take the training from the Positive Coaching Alliance (PCA), using their Double-Goal Coach online courses. A Double-Goal Coach has two goals: the first is to win, but the second, more important goal, is to teach life lessons through sports. All ACYS Basketball Coaches are required to be Level 1 certified from PCA to coach a team in ACYS. This PCA training combined with the guidance provided by the Azle High School Basketball program will give our coaches the tools they need to help our youth succeed on the court and in life.

For anyone interested in coaching an ACYS Basketball team, we first want to thank you for stepping up to lead our youth and help prepare them for success. To get started, please fill out the ACYS Basketball Coach Application on the ACYS website. ACYS Basketball coaches must meet the following requirements:
