What is Tournament season?
HYL and Spokane AAU have updated to a longer tournament season. The goal is to expand local and affordable playing opportunities for any team (HYL, AAU, club, etc) to increase the number of total games played in a variety of formats. Establishing and growing a tournament season brings an immediate benefit to the competitive teams that historically played AAU and to the newly formed HYL teams.
All tournaments are team registrations. Coaches must form teams prior to registering.
