Mid America Youth Basketball - AR: Welcome

MAYB

Mid America Youth Basketball will be entering their 16th year in the summer of 2009. MAYB tournaments are unique in many ways. Participating teams are set up by the grade level a player was in during the 2008-2009 school year. MAYB offers divisions for 3rd -12th grade boys and girls teams. All players are eligible to participate. We strive to provide a competitive environment for all teams and players to improve their skills. Teams have found MAYB to be a very affordable option for summer participation and skill development. Our five scheduled game guarantee at each tournament assures guarantees a player a minimum of a 20 game summer season in only 4 weekends. Pool play and bracketed tournaments are used to group teams against teams of similar talent. Another unique feature of MAYB is that each area tournament is locally hosted. Booster clubs, school programs and teams, recreation centers, and various community organizations host the events and use the proceeds within the local community. MAYB is proud of the fact that we have been able to help many programs throughout our operation area, and provide services they may not have been able to afford otherwise.

 MAYB National Summer Kickoff :  Be a part of the largest summer basketball tournament in the USA June 12-14, 2009 in the Newton, KS area.  Last year over 700 teams from 20 states participated in this event. In 2009, we will utilize more than 90 School and College gyms in the Central KS area.  Each team receives a minimum of 5 games.  Ability based brackets are used after pool play with awards for all levels of competition.

August 6 - August 9, 2009: The Boys’ Event is hosted in the El Dorado/Wichita, KS area and the Girls’ Event is hosted in the OKC/Stillwater, OK area.  The National Tournament varies slightly from the other tournaments with a 4-game guarantee and only one tournament bracket for each age group.
