Listed below are Frequently Asked Questions. Most of the information can also be found in the Handbook.
What do I need to do to get my team signed up?
There are two options to register for tournaments. You can choose to register online, pay with a credit card, or send in the hard copy entry form with a check. That is all we need to get your team signed up for a tournament. The other documentation can be brought to team check-in at your first tournament.

How do I find a team to play on?
The MYAS does not form teams or place kids on teams. However, we can get you in contact with teams/clubs who will be putting teams together. We recommend contacting your local association first. Click here to view association/club contact info. Or, you can form your own team.
Are there different levels of play?
Yes. There are Division I (Elite), Division II (A teams), Division III (B teams) and Division IV (C/Rec teams) divisions. It is the responsibility of the coaches to classify their team(s) correctly. The MYAS reserves the right to move teams up or down. More info, click here.
Where are games played?
The MYAS has several locations around the metro area for the spring/summer basketball tournaments. Teams cannot sign up for a specific location. We will try to keep teams as close to home as possible. Click here for the current list of playing locations.

When can I get my schedule?
Schedules are posted online 9-10 days prior to each tournament.
Will the schedules change?
Possibly. It is the coaches/teams responsibility to make sure they have the current schedule. Please check the website often.
Can I coach two teams?
It is recommended that coaches coach only one team. If you plan on coaching multiple teams the MYAS does not guarantee that they will be placed at the same playing site or that the schedules will allow a coach to coach both teams. You are welcome to list the request on the entry form but it is not guaranteed that we will be able to accommodate.
Can a player play on two teams?
Athletes may participate on two teams on the same weekend as long as the teams are not in the same bracket/pool. Those teams must be comprised as follows:
A. One team must be school/community based and the other must be an open team. An “open team” is defined as being comprised of players from multiple communities.
B. Players may play on two different teams within the same club or school/community based program.
Game results will be posted online shortly after each event.
Are there additional fees required to participate in any of the spring/summer basketball tournaments?
No. Each team will be registered with USAB by the MYAS office. Your USAB Membership fee is included with your tournament entry fee. The USAB sports accident insurance is an additional fee and is optional.
Each playing site will have a full concession stand.
There will be an admission fee. $7 per adult and $4 per student.
All players will be admitted for free.
Do coaches have to pay admission?
No. The coach passes are included in your tournament entry fee. We will have a coach sign-in sheet at the admission table. Coaches are admitted free at the location that their team is playing only. A maximum of 3 coach per team will be admitted for free.
Each site will have a certified trainer on-site.
Are jerseys provided?
No. Teams must provide their own jerseys/uniforms.
