SPRING HOUSE PROGRAM (BOYS/GIRLS GRADES 4-12 only)
Online registration for the CYA Spring House Basketball Program will began in January 2014. The registration fee for grades 4-8 is $145.00 and for grades 9-12 is $155; this registration fee includes a $20 CYA admin fee, a $10 indoor capital improvement fee, and a $5.50 Fairfax County user fee. The deadline to register without a late fee has been extended to 11:59 March 3rd. Beginning March 3rd a $25 late charge is assessed on all registrations. To ensure placement on a team, you must register by March 15th. All registrants after March 15th will be placed on a wait list and placed on a team only if space permits. NOTE: Due to Fairfax County rules, a $30 user fee is assessed on any out-of-county registrants.
CYA’s house program is open to all applicants in grades 4-12 regardless of skill level or place of residence. Those who participated in the Winter travel program or played for their High School teams are also eligible to participate in this house program. Most leagues in grade 4-8 have a weeknight practice and a weekend game for the first few weeks and then go to a weeknight game and weekend game for the remainder of the season. High school aged players have a single pre-season practice then go straight to games only (weeknight and weekend games).
The season will start in late March or early April and will go until early June. Skills assessments for grades 4-8 will be held in mid to late March. Games are anticipated to begin the weekend of March 29-30 for most leagues. There will be no games during Spring break.

SPRING AAU PROGRAM (GIRLS AND BOYS GRADES 4-9)
While there is no Travel program in the Spring, CYA last year instituted a pilot AAU program on the girls side for grades 4-8. These players pay a $200 base registration fee and then a supplemental fee depending on how many AAU tournaments they participate in and the cost of those tournaments. They are also required to purchase their uniforms. Players on these teams practice twice a week and play in up to 6 local tournaments over the course of the AAU season.
This year (2014) CYA instituted a Boys AAU program along the same lines as last year's girls program. Tryouts for both the boys and girls programs took place in late February to early March.
The coordinator for the AAU girls program is Craig Ballam (email@example.com) and for the boys program is Jon Enders (firstname.lastname@example.org).
