  • 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 $180.00 including full home and away uniforms and shooting shirt and is in addition to the registration fee.

  • 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 7th or 14th
  • 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.
