AAU/YBOA Basketball

AAU/YBOA basketball is extremely competitive. Players must tryout and then be selected for the appropriate level of play (Division 1 or 2).

The AAU/YBOA are national programs. Teams will represent the Annandale Boys & Girls Club at various qualifying tournaments at the State and Regional levels. Teams are competing to represent their clubs at the AAU Nationals and/or the YBOA Nationals. Nationals for AAU include various locations, including the home of the YBOA National Tournament, Orlando Florida’s Disney World.
