Good morning all,


We are down to the last two weeks of the season. We'll meet this Saturday, 23 March and the following Saturday, 30 March, before calling it a year.

This Saturday will mark my last day with you and your athletes. Coach Schaefer will lead the practice and trophy presentation on the 30th of March.

It's been my absolute pleasure to share the last 3 years with you and your children. I hope we've provided some of the educational foundation they'll use if they continue with basketball.





Cancellation of Games for 16 February

Good morning all,


We are cancelling the games scheduled for 16 February due to the U.S. President''s Day holiday. This frees up the weekend for those families who really want to travel that weekend.






Updated Schedule

January 10, 2019 – 03:02 PM



Please be advised that we have to cancel the scheduled practices for 12 Jan 2019 and 2 Feb 2019 due to unexpected school basketball events.


Please share with those families who you're in contact with.






Welcome to the 2019 AYSL Basketball Program

December 5, 2018

Hello and welcome to the 2019 Ankara Youth Sports League 2019 basketball program.


We'll open registration tomorrow, 06 December 2018 through mid January 2019 for those parents and athletes interested

in participating in the league this year.

Right now, we plan on hosting an on site registration where we'll issue uniforms and introduce coaches on the 5th of January, 2019.

We'll then start a 10-12 week season that will run from 12 January through 30 March 2019.

Please understand that there are restrictions for access to the Ankara Support Facility. Families without inherent access due to their assignment in Ankara will have to provide "local police records" checks along with passport, kimlik, and vehicle access requests. I will post the procedures for requesting access NLT than the 10th of December.

I anticipate registration fees being 40TL per athlete this year for those who already have AYSL uniforms. I believe it'll cost an additional 80TL per uniform for those athletes who are new to the community or who have outgrown their current uniforms.


As always, we're looking for coaches, game officials, and team parents.


Please contact me via here or through my work email ( with questions.

Ankara Support Facility Access

Good Morning All,


Please know that there is restricted access to the Ankara Support Facility. I must turn in a access request memo, with which, I request escorted or unescorted access for you and your athletes for the basketball season.

I believe that I have reached out to everyone who does not have access inherent to their role in the community. If you have not received an email from me directly requesting information and you know that you need access, then please reach out to me directly. My weekly suspense is Wednesday. If I do not get the list in by that day of the week then your family will not have access that following Saturday.

I simply cannot meet people at the gate to sign them in.
