Hello AYBA Familes,
Based on the new LA County requirements, it looks like it's back to mandatory masks.
At this time we'll require all spectators to wear them, all coaches and all players when they're not on the court. All officials need to wear them except for referees while they're on the court.
We only have a couple weeks left, so lets try to get through this with minimum disruption.
The mandatory mask requirement begins Sunday July 18th, 2021.
The season will consist of 8 games, and will run June 19-August 6.
Once our Summer season starts, the AYBA will strictly enforce the current CDC Covid-19 guidelines for indoor contact sports.
The Registration "Home" is not currently available.
Since the inception of the Agoura Youth Basketball Association many years ago, the focus of the organization has been supporting the kids in our community in learning skills, teamwork and personal growth through the sport of basketball. But, during these times of Covid-19, with the organized playing of basketball not possible, the AYBA is benefiting the kids in the community in any way they can. During these crazy times of the pandemic, that benefit has taken on a completely different form.
With that, the AYBA Board unanimously voted to donate $10,000 to local schools to help make sure none of our kids go hungry.
$5000 went to Las Virgenes Unified School District to offset the costs of the FREE breakfast and lunch program. LVUSD has been offering packaged breakfast and lunch meals for all students, five days a week, from 9am to 12:00pm at the AE Wright Middle School location in Calabasas, where families can pick up daily meals for their children.
AYBA continues its mission to positively affect the community it serves through donations such as this, as well as improvements to various school site and athletic facilities.
An additional $5,000 went to Oak Park Unified School District to fortify their Nutrition Program.
Your students are our players, so on behalf of the entire AYBA Board, we are thrilled that we can help, and thankful for all the people helping to get food to those in need.
On August 10, 2020, AYBA President Drew Fine (not pictured) met up with LVUSD Superintendent Dr. Dan Stepenosky, Assistant Superintendent Karen Kimmel, and staff at AE Wright's kitchen to deliver the donation.

The VIP Summer and Winter Programs provide a quality basketball experience for children - and adults - whose physical or mental disabilities make it difficult to successfully participate on mainstream teams. The VIP program runs concurrently with the Summer and Winter Rec seasons.
ABC provides advanced skills training to players in 1st through 8th grade who want to improve their games in between rec league seasons. The Spring and Fall ABC Program focuses on developing skills in a fun environment to help players achieve their individual goals for when they return to team play.
The Agoura Youth Basketball Association (AYBA) is a volunteer non-profit organization dedicated to helping youth build self esteem and self confidence through organized basketball.
