NOTE: Registration for the Winter 2016-17 CYA Basketball program is closed; games and practices began in early December. Registration for the Spring 2017 program will open the first week of January (see below).
SPRING 2016 HOUSE PROGRAM (BOYS/GIRLS GRADES 3-12 only)
Online registration for the CYA Spring House Basketball Program is schedled to begin on 4 January 2017. CYA’s house program is open to all applicants in grades 3-12 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. The Spring program is open to all those of eligible grade-level regardless of whether they played for CYA Basketball in the Winter season; Fairfax County residence is not required. NOTE: This year we are opening the Spring program to 3rd graders for the first time.
Most leagues in grade 3-8 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).
Registration fees for the House program are $165.00 for grades 3-8 and $180.00 for grades 9-12. Incorporated into these registration fees is a $20 CYA admininstrative fee, a $10 fee for the CYA indoor facilities capital improvement fund, and the $5.50 Fairfax County user fee (to repeat, these fees are included in the registration fees listed above). Non-county residents pay an additional $30.00 as the Fairfax County user fee for non-residents is $35.50. For the AAU registration fees, see below. A $25 late fee will be applied beginning 6 March.
You can register for CYA Spring 2017 House Basketball and be assured placement on a team until March 19th. Begining March 20h, registrations will be accepted only if space still exists at the grade level in which you are registering (for example, 5th grade boys). All others will be placed on a Wait List and only placed on a team if space opens up prior to the start of the season. All grades will be in need of coaches for the spring league. Please volunteer if you have one hour during the week and one to two hours on the weekend. You can register at www.chantillyyouth.org. Coaching can be a rewarding experience for you and your child, relative, or friend. Games start weekend of April 9-10 and finish the weekend of June 11-12.
Skills assessments for grades 3-8 boys and girls will be scheduled in late March. As soon as each league is scheduled for their assessments, a notice will be sent out to registrants stating time and place. Coaches grades 3-12, boys and girls, should select their teams in a draft process in early April.
Please note that we cannot tell you when and where your child's games and practices will be held until after the teams are selected in late March to early April. All registration questions should be directed to the CYA registrar, Cindy Aune, at email@example.com or 703-597-1707.

SPRING 2016 AAU PROGRAM (GIRLS AND BOYS GRADES 5-11)
While there is no Travel program in the Spring, CYA does have an AAU program for both boys (grades 5-10) and girls (grades 5-11). These players pay a $350 base registration fee (part of which is allocated to tournament fees) 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.
Tryouts for both the boys and girls 2017 programs will take place in late February to early March. The coordinator for the AAU girls program is Craig Ballam (email@example.com) and the acting coordinator for the boys program is Shubha Johnson (firstname.lastname@example.org). Check the CYA Scheduling website (http://cyabasketball.assn.la) for the tryout dates. If you are interested in coaching an AAU team, please contact Craig Ballam or Shubha Johnson.
