In youth basketball, no sector is more competitive than the Amateur Athletics Union (AAU) and Youth Basketball of America (YBOA).
Neither AAU nor YBOA is a league. Rather, they each consist of tournaments played 2-3 weekends a month. These tournaments usually consist of a game on Friday night, two games on Saturdays, with the semi-final and final game on Sundays.
Both organiztions hold State tournaments that will in turn qualify your team for National tournaments. The national tournaments are held in either June, July or August. These national tournaments, which consist also of top finishers from other states, are held in Florida, Memphis, Virginia Beach and elsewhere.
It is the goal of EOTO to qualify each of its teams for the AAU/YBOA National Championships each year.
