Mid America Youth Basketball - AR: Welcome

MAYB

Mid America Youth Basketball otherwise known as MAYB will be entering their 22nd year in the summer of 2015. MAYB tournaments are unique in many ways. Participating teams are set up by the grade level a player was in during the 2014-2015 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. We offer 5-Game Guarentee tournaments during the summer, and 3 Game guarentee in the other seasons. This makes the number of games played per weeked beneficial and do-able in a weekends time. 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 has been expanding since day one, and we are continuing to expand today while still providing necessary actions, to make sure every tournament runs more smooth than the one before it.
