Eagles Youth Sports Basketball participates in the Arapahoe Youth League (AYL). The AYL is organized by Member Clubs that manage different territories in the areas. Our territory is the Southeastern portion of Denver where we offer youth Basketball for Boys and Girls from 2nd through 8th grade with 2 levels of competition for 3rd through 8th grade.
Division 1 – This level of competition is intended for kids who have been playing basketball consistently and understand fundamentals of ball handling and basic game rules. Teams that have played together in other leagues for at least 1 year should consider playing at this level. Returning AYL teams that have a greater than 50% winning record AND 60% or more of their players returning are required to play at this level.
Division 2 – This level of competition is intended for kids who desire a competitive basketball experience but may not have been playing on a consistent team in previous years or are just moving up from a recreational league.
Regular season games will begin in early December and wrap up near the end of February. The playoff round and championship games will also be played in February.
It is the AYL basketball Board's goal to manage a program that is fun and promotes sportsmanship and a lifelong love of the game of basketball. Throughout the season we will post updates and other additional information so please check back periodically.
