YAS coaches are continuously innovating and adjusting the YAS summer basketball camps skills-development program in order to maintain YAS’s standing as a sports-school leader. Each year, top teacher-coaches from universities, colleges and secondary schools are surveyed in order to determine the skills that they regard as current top priority and in need of emphasis among young developing players.

That input from college professionals and teacher-coaches is then incorporated into YAS summer basketball camps.

12,904 players from 273 communities have graduated from YAS’s award-winning summer basketball camps since YAS was founded in 1975. Each YAS graduate returned home armed with the skills and confidence needed to excel in basketball and other sports, and most importantly to take leadership roles at school and to make positive contributions to their overall communities.
