    The fees for the 2019 AAU/YBOA season are $850. The lower division with 6th/5th/4th

    grades will be $500 as they schedule will contain less travel with fewer tournaments. The

    payment options and fee breakdown are below. Players cannot begin practicing with their

    teams prior to making payment.

    expense.

    **These fees will cover 8-10 scheduled tournaments, as well as uniforms that the

    player will get to keep this spring along with a shirt and a bag. This is where the price

    increase comes in along with facility rental fees increasing. This fee does not include

    tournament fees for any additional state or national events a team may qualify, if the team

    chooses to attend. Travel costs to local and regional tournaments are not included. Our

    travel schedule includes tournaments in Jacksonville, Tavares, Orlando, Gainesville, and

  • 2 | P a g e

    Travel Costs

    Players who travel without a parent will be required to pay for their portion of the hotel

    and/or transportation cost. In addition, funds must be provided for meals. All travel cost

    fees must be paid in full prior to traveling for those players traveling with a coach. Most

    tournaments will be local to Jacksonville, and for those tournaments that may be played in

    the Orlando, Gainesville and/or Daytona areas, these too generally can be treated as day

    trips since they are usually about 1 hour to 1 ½ hour drive from the Orange Park area.

    Alternatively, you may opt to stay at a hotel local to the tournaments when they are out of

    town at a nearby hotel, and if YBOA or AAU provides any hotel offers, we will provide you

    with the link for same as they become available. Hotel costs are players/parents

    responsibility.

    Tournaments

    Suggested tournaments will be communicated to parents at least two to three weeks prior

    to the tournament registration deadline. We must have at least 7 players who can attend in

    order to register for a tournament. Game time(s) and tournament facility location(s) for

    the basketball game(s) are not disclosed to us until a few days before the tournament

    weekend. The tournament hosts will often wait until the Wednesday or Thursday before

    the tournament weekend to advise of the scheduled game time(s).

    Playing Time

    Unlike community recreation leagues, players will not always play equal time in every

    game. However, coaches will make every effort to ensure every player plays substantial

    minutes during a tournament. Scrimmages and smaller local tournaments will be used to

    give players plenty of opportunity to earn playing time for the bigger tournaments. There

    are anywhere from 3-5 games per tournament depending on performance and playing time

    can change game to game. Playing time is earned by attendance AND performance at

    practices as well as in the game. It’s up to each coach how much playing time each player

    receives. Circumstances such as foul trouble, match-ups, in-game situations and end-game

    scenarios may dictate different amounts of playing time. Coaches will make playing

    decisions based upon who will give the team the best chance to win.

    Practices

    Each team will practice at least twice a week for 1.5 hours each session. Official practice

    location will be provided to team during team meeting held before the season begins.

    There may be some practices scheduled on Fridays or Saturdays, with prior notice to team

    members.
