I hope this finds you and your family safe during this time.
With Governor Ducey closing schools for the remainder of the school year, we will cancel the YDA spring season for April & May.
We are going to continue to follow the lead of our governor and school districts. If the dust settles this summer, we will look at programming in June/July/August. Safety will remain our top priority but when it becomes safe, we know how important it is for your program and families in your community to PLAY.
Again, thank you for your patience throughout this crazy time. We will keep you posted with game opportunities when it is safe to play.

This is a challenging time for families and community. We have been actively monitoring COVID-19 (coronavirus).
The ABCA and Youth Development Academy's top priority continues to be the health and safety of our coaches, players, and families. We feel the appropriate measure is to postpone the start date of the YDA Spring Season.
Tentatively, the start date will be Saturday, April 4th. Obviously, we will continue to monitor COVID-19. If it is appropriate to push the date back as we get closer, we will do so. We may have to have some dates where we will play two games.
We will continue to communicate with you as we obtain more information. You may register your teams but you will not need to pay the team fee until the first game that is scheduled. If we end up having a shorter season, we will prorate the cost.
Thank you for your patience and stay safe!

Regular season will be at the same locations in the regions. We will be adding a site at Sandra Day O'Connor HS for the NW region and there may be an additional site in central Phoenix. East Valley games will be at the same site.
There is a section in the registration to list a date you will not be able to play.
Tournament dates: May 15 & 16
We have received some great feedback on the tournaments. We will beef up the tournament. The tounament will be on May 15 & 16 that will be 8-team brackets (opposed to 4) with a 3-game guarantee. You will play one game on Friday evening and two games on Saturday. Winners of each bracket will be recognized.
Cost for the tournament will be $100 per team.
You will have 3 registration options:
1. Regular Season & Tournament: $575 ($475 (reg season) & $100 (tourney))
2. Regular Season Only: $475

Looking forward to seeing you all again this spring!

If you didn't see your team in the attached brackets, that means they are in a 3-team pool. Please check the app for the team and their schedule will come up.

The March 7th tournament schedule is now posted and live on the website and app.
Every team will play two games. All teams will either play back-to-back or play-sit-play. So please don't leave after your first game!
Most teams are in 4-team brackets that will play bracket style (winners play winners and losers play losers of first game).
There are also 3-team brackets (lower level teams in each age division). 3-team brackets will play each team once in round-robin.
Brackets and round-robin games are on the website and app. I have also attached all of the brackets for the 4-team brackets.
Tournament games will be played at 6 sites: Bourgade Catholic HS, Sunnyslope HS, Monte Vista Church-Nazarene & Phoenix Country Day School, South Mountain Community College, and Highland High School. A team will play at the same site for both games. ***Only exception is the possibility of playing one game at Monte Vista Church and PCDS - they are 5 minutes apart.***
Looking forward to a fun Saturday of games.

The March 7th tournament schedule will be sent out Monday morning. With March 7th being the start of Spring Break for many of you, please let us know if you will not have a team playing or if you are combining teams. The worst-case scenario is a team not having enough players, which is not fair to the other teams.

The Schedule is up for the remainder of the season, please keep requests to a minimum as we are working on ones that have been already sent. Remember your requests effect more then just your team.
Please check the schedule each week as it could change (we will notify teams if schedule changes).
2/5/2020 2:46 PM
Please double check the schedule to confirm game times for this Saturday, Feb 1st. We are working on the schedule for the next 4 Weeks and will be completed by Monday at the latest.

We are excited to kick the Winter 2 Season off this Saturday (for most of you).
Just want to send some reminders heading into games.
Make sure your coaches know the game rules. Link:https://www.yda-abca.com/page/show/4940204-yda-game-rules
The agenda with the information we covered is attached. Most of you have it - if you recently registered your team, please take a look at it.
The top team listed on the schedule is the away team and wears dark uniform (if possible - if the listed-away team only has light unform, the other team can go light).
We are looking forward to a fun day of hoops this Saturday!
