  • Cost Estimate - The cost for each player will be dependent upon the number and type of tournaments that the team attends.  For a team attending (5) tournaments, the cost is estimated at $395.00 which includes the tournament fees and AAU membership.  The head coach will advise the parents and players if there is an additional financial obligation due to an extended tournament schedule or if there are plans to attend higher cost tournaments like NCAA Showcase events.

  • There is a $25.00 application fee. The $25.00 fee must be paid by 3/1, after that date it increases to $50.00 and is based on team and roster availability.

  • If you need a uniform, the estimated cost is $168.00 including full home and away uniforms and $22 for the shooting shirt.

  • If you need a practice jersey, the estimated cost is $20.00. 


  • Each team's tournament schedule and length of AAU Season will be decided by its head coach.
  • Each team will practice 2 two days per week
  • Tryouts and Practices will begin the week of March 6th or 13th
  • York Thunder's Coaches consist primarily of current and former college and high school coaches and players


York Thunder does not carry insurance for the players.  Players are warned that they accept the risk of injury.  AAU registration does provide minimal coverage that is in addition to any personal insurance coverage you may have.
