 Program Overview 

Averill Park Youth Basketball has 2 programs:  Hoop Camp and Travel. 

Hoop Camp/House League:

For those interested in participating and working on individual fundamentals with an emphasis on fun, Saturday hoop camp sessions are a good fit.   Hoop camp is Saturday only from early November to early February for all interested boys and girls 1st through 6th grade.   Sessions run 75-90 minutes per grade in the Algonquin Middle School gyms.  Grades 3 thru 6 hoop camps will incorporate a house league where games are played to provide a competitive “in-house” environment for kids to apply some skills they have learned.   Teams will be assigned by week 3 of hoop camp and games to start thereafter.

            1st and 2nd grade -- FREE basketball and FREE t-shirt

            3rd through 6th grade -- FREE reversible jersey

            All -  FREE clinic - High School and Middle School coaches to run hoop camp session for a day.

Travel:

 For those who want additional competition in a team setting, travel teams are an additional option.  Participation in travel requires at least a 75% participation in hoop camp.  Travel entails hoop camp on Saturdays, 1-2 team practices a week and games on weekends.  Travel tryouts usually occur in late September or early Oct for the season to come.

Friends of Algonquin Athletics (FOAA) Fundraiser

Friends of Algonquin Athletics (FOAA) is currently sponsoring a Hoffman's car wash fundraiser! We are a volunteer organization dedicated to preserving the 7th/8th grade athletic program at Algonquin Middle School. Currently, modified sports is not included in the Averill Park School District's budget. We must raise at least $55,000 annually to continue to offer this positive program to our middle school students and still need $41,000 by the end of the school year.  Please consider supporting this fundraiser to keep athletics at AMS a reality.  Car wash tickets may be purchased online at:  http://www.hoffmanhelpinghands.com/fundraisers/FOAA 50% of the car wash ticket price is directly donated to FOAA! What a great holiday gift, or stock up for the snowy/salty winter ahead! Questions may be directed to: vmfoaa@gmail.com. We cannot drop the ball!
