ACYS is proud to announce that registration for ACYS Basketball for the 2014-15 season is now open for boys AND GIRLS ages 5 – 14. Athletes can register online on the ACYS website or In Person. Teams will fill up fast so please register early to make sure your athlete gets to participate.
ACYS Basketball is closely aligned with and guided by the Azle High School basketball program. ACYS Basketball, like all ACYS sports, is designed to prepare our young athletes for competition at the junior high and high school level.
ACYS Basketball proudly supports the Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) and the Positive Coaching Alliance (PCA). ACYS Basketball Coaches who register with AAU will receive 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.
ACYS would like to thank the Dallas Mavericks for their help and support of our basketball program. We would also like to thank our sponsors for their generous support. As a result of our generous sponsors, ACYS has been able to actually reduce the cost of basketball this year for our athletes and families. In addition, we are offering a discount to those athletes who still have their uniform from last year. For those athletes who would like to wear their uniform from last year, they will get a $15 discount off their registration.
