We W.I.L.L. Thru Sports is excited to announce the AAU Boys August Basketball Tournament. With this in mind, the tournament will be held on Saturday, August 5th and Sunday, August 6th. At the same time, the tournament will run from 10:00 a.m. until approximately 5:00 p.m.
Amateur Athletic Union
In the first place, the Amateur Athletic Union is one of the biggest, non-profit, volunteer, sports organizations in the United States. Of course, the AAU is dedicated exclusively to promoting the development of amateur sports and physical fitness programs.
Because the AAU is becoming much bigger, many children are already a member. If you’re not a member, a basic membership cost $14.00 a year, which runs from September 1 thru August 31st.
Once you’re a member of the AAU, you can register to participate in any event.
AAU Boys August Basketball Tournament
In view of the upcoming AAU tournament, the child has to be a member of the Amateur Athletic Union in order to participate.
So, this year the Boy’s basketball tournament will be held at Stanley Isaac’s Park, E 97st and 1st Ave in New York, New York. This is easy to get to as it is right off the FDR drive.
Above all, this year the courts have been improved as the Park and Recreation changed the back rims and rims.
Basketball Tournament Requirements
For the basketball tournament, no skill level is required. Since kids come from all over including kids who live in the Burroughs of Manhattan. Moreover, last year we had kids who came from upstate New York and traveled over an hour to participate.
Because the tournament will begin next month, make sure you have filled out your registration and become a member of the AAU.
To sum up, excitement is building as coaches and kids get ready to participate in the AAU Boys August Basketball Tournament.
As always, I welcome your comments.
