Welcome to Azle Competitive Youth Sports
ACYS Basketball Registration is NOW OPEN!
Registration for ACYS Basketball for the 2016-17 season is now open for boys AND GIRLS grades ages 5 thru 12. We are also offering basketball for 7th and 8th grade boys and girls. 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 Rec teams will interleague with local towns and our select teams will have additional interleague partners that offer more competitive basketball.
Our Rec teams will be formed by age groups (6u, 8u, 10u, 12u) this year. Our 7th and 8th grade teams and our select teams will be formed by grade like they are in school. The practice and game schedules for our 7th and 8th grade teams will NOT conflict with the school schedule.
We will have new interleague partners this year which allows us to offer both recreational basketball as well as select basketball. Coaches with select teams (partial or full) will need to contact ACYS as soon as possible as space is limited.
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.
