The Alabama Youth Sports Alliance (AYSA) is a nonprofit youth sports organization that is under the umbrella of the Amateur Athletic Union (AAU). While our foundational sport is basketball, we have and will be launching other sports programs. We focus on fundamental skill development and try to provide maximum exposure for those aspiring to reach the next level. Although we do not serve as a recreational program, we do occasionally participate in local recreational leagues. Some of our coaches offer tryouts but often players are selected from the surrounding area and various school systems. Our coaches and players are certified members of the AAU. The AAU is one of the largest sports organizations in the United States. AYSA strives to provide a platform for players to grow year around by competing at the highest level possible.
