How AYBT Works

Playing on the American Youth Basketball Tour

The AYBT has provided a rewarding experience to over 50,000 teams through the years and understands the dynamics teams have in finding quality tournaments. AYBT wants to meet the needs of our teams so we have partnered with YBNetwork.NET to make it easier for teams to find, register and view game schedules through a seamless online experience. Our local AYBT District Directors can certainly help guide you through the process of playing on the AYBT and below you will find some helpful hints!

  • First, a coach will need to form a team. For club director’s and school coaches of multiple teams, our partnership with YBNetwork.NET will create less work on your end!
  • Next, the coach or club director should visit YBNetwork.NET and create their free account, then start by adding your team and building your roster information. You should add the team according to grade division and skill level. AYBT’s rating system helps to schedule teams of similar ability to play against each other, maximizing each team’s benefit.
  • Once your team has been created, visit the main page of YBNetwork.NET and search for tournaments specific to your needs. Type in AYBT in the find filter if you only want to search for AYBT events!
  • With AYBT’s new partnership, TEAMS WILL NOW PAY THE TOURNAMENT DIRECTOR DIRECTLY through the YBNetwork.NET registration process. AYBT will no longer require teams to pay for multiple tournaments up front, teams will pay as the go per the deadlines of the tournaments they choose to participate.
  • Enjoy a family-friendly and rewarding youth basketball experience!

Taking part in AYBT’s boys and girls youth basketball program is a rewarding experience for the entire family, and it only takes a few steps to get in the game. For a more detailed description of American Youth Basketball Tour policies, see our game format & regulations page.
