Over 11,584 youths from 267 communities have graduated from YAS summer basketball camps since 1975.
Last summer YAS drew youths from 55 Saskat-chewan communities plus five other provinces, France and The People’s Republic of China.
YAS has highly competitive camps for youths who want to develop the skills they will need in order to excel on their school teams.
YAS also has fundamentals camps for youths who want to play basketball at recreational and intramural levels.
YAS always has been the most expensive summer basketball day camp in Saskatchewan, yet it annually outdraws by over double its next two competitors combined (including the universities). At YAS you’ll pay slightly more, get lots more, have more fun, and learn a whole lot more than anywhere else.
Some 37 out of 40 teams that made it to the “Hoopla” provincial high school basketball championship Tournament during March 2012 in Regina had YAS graduates on their rosters.
Each year YAS graduates are kept track of, raised to the attention of and referred to college and university coaches outside Saskatchewan, both across Canada and the USA, where after high school there will be far better opportunities for them to continue basketball and other sports while getting free or subsidized post-secondary educations.
At YAS youths are taught to aim high in sports and life. The 11,584 YAS graduates include thousands and thousands who are now professionals and community leaders who attribute their successes in large part to what they learned at YAS summer basketball camps.
Every Saskatchewan school has been sent a supply of YAS brochures. Pick up a “YAS” brochure there visit the YAS website to view and print a detailed brochure and registration form at www.yas.ca or contact YAS directly and request that YAS mail or email to you an information package.
