What parents are saying about AIYBL

"I loved that the kids started to develop as a team over time. One of my sons has never had that opportunity and he truly loved it."

"I enjoyed seeing my son excited to come out to the program. He has never been good enough to make the rep team and this program made it possible to play basketball during the winter months.  The coaches took time to really focus on a players strengths and needs.  Needs were addressed and strategies and corrections were given.  Such a great program overall."

"It was so well-run and organized.  Worth every penny."

"Format is perfect.  Late arrivals don't effect the game itself."

"Everything!!!  [my son] enjoyed it 1000 times better than his other House League."

"Thank you for allowing all kids in the community to feel confident and excited about sports and playing on a team."

"Best run program my son has EVER been in.  Highlight of our week.  Great job!"

"Don't change a thing - you motivated many of the players and made them better and more confident."
