Open Email to Participants:

Blue Devil Family,

We are happy to announce that registration open will open on August 28th for the 2023/24 recreational basketball season for players ages 5-14 years of age.

Age is determined by September 1st 2022. All ages are Co-Ed at this time.

Once again we will be partnering with the Atlanta Hawks and participating in their Jr. Hawks program.

Every registration will cover, insurance, facility fees, referees, uniform and a voucher for 2 tickets to select Hawks games. (not all games are available via vouchers, but vouchers can be used towards the purchase of premium games or upgraded tickets)

The amount of registration is $230.00 + $3 processing fee for ages 5-14. An additional player on the same account/from the same family will receive a $10 dollar discount towards the second registration for player 5-14 years of age.

Registration can be completed online and walk up registration for those who wish to pay cash at.

Any additional paperwork requirements outside of online registration will be taken care of at fittings. 

We will also start evaluations and/or drill camps on the 1st of November.

For all age groups, the goal, dependent on the number of teams, is to have 2-3 practices per week preseason, then to have one practice and no more than two per week should times slots be available, and a game once the season begins. Again, this is space and number of teams dependent.

A fundraiser for the program and team pictures will occur during the season.

In order for a player to "play up" agreement must be obtained from the Directors and the Coach who would be responsible for the player. The ability to play up is NOT automatic. Any special needs players who would better succeed by playing at a lower age group may play down.

Players are drafted and do not have an option of playing with another player or a specific coach.

Some games will require travel and we partner with Lanier, Duluth, Peachtree Ridge, Collins Hill and possibly other organizations if the league is expanded prior to season start.

At the conclusion of the season there will be a playoff/tournament with teams from all league participating organizations and ages. Depending on the number of teams in the age division, brackets will separated by overall record in order to give teams an opportunity to play teams within a similar range in terms of record.

This is a lot of information, but we tried to cover all the questions that have been sent regarding season information in this email so that everyone can have the same information.

Any questions, or if you or someone you know is interested in coaching, please contact the email address coinciding with the age division you wish to coach or your question is related to.

[email protected] for general questions.

Thank you,

NYAA Basketball

Skill Evaluations

Final Uniform fittings will be held at walk-up registrations with a final fitting to be announced before start of season. If you have any questions please contact Basketball Director D'Arius Travis at: d'

All players in the Rec. Leagues will be placed on a team. It is required that players attend their age group skill evaluation. The goal of NYAA is to provide a balanced and competitive set of teams possible in all age groups. To accomplish that goal, all players must attend and be assessed so that we can evenly distribute players of each skill level across all teams. Players not attending the skill evaluation will  negatively impact the talent and experience mix on their team.

Practices / Games

Teams will typically have an average 1-3 practice(s) per week in the preseason. Once the season starts team will typically have 1 game and practice per week. We strive for all games to be on a Saturday - however due to two end of season tournaments and banquet, it is possible for weekday or even a Sunday game to be scheduled. It is typically minimal outside of tournaments that we are forced to schedule weekday games.

However, it is best to be prepared to have 2-3 weeks where 2 games may be played that week, either same day, or one during a weekday.

It is always dependent on facility availability across the league. If there are too many teams for facilities to accommodate all games on a Saturday, then teams will rotate having a weekday games added in to ensure all teams are scheduled the minimum amount of games.


NYAA/Norcross Youth Basketball is completely staffed by volunteers. The Norcross Youth Basketball program will not be possible without you. If you are interested in being a Coach or Assistant Coach, contact D'Arius Travis at: d'   

If you would like to be a Team Mom or just offer to help in any way please indicate this when you register your athlete.
