Are you an Amazon shopper? Or do you like the ease of doing online shopping? AYS has just joined AmazonSmile. Amazonsmile is operated by Amazon but lets customers enjoy the same selection of products, low prices, and convenient shopping features as on Amazon.com while helping support a non profit organization. When customers shop on AmazonSmile (smile.amazon.com), the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the price of eligible purchases to our AYS Organization!! How Cool is that?? All you have to do is visit smile.amazon.com and pick Area Youth Sports, Inc Jay, ME. to have donations made to us!! But remember you must always shop from this site and not the regular Amazon one for us to receive benefits. We thank you in advance for all your support. Without all our supporters, there would be no AYS to offer our youth!

Greetings AYS and Phoenix community. The board would like to reach out to the community and let everyone know we understand and are working hard to improve our communication and do the best we can to provide the best possible experience for our kids. We had a successful meeting this morning with a great public turnout and with constructive feedback, we were able to address and correct an issue that was brought to our attention. Going forward our objective is to continue to improve and better the program and learn from our mistakes. Please remember that the board is just a group of volunteers made of blue collar workers, white collar workers, veterans, educators, health care workers, parents, and one incredibly attractive male model (Alan Mitchell, yes I wrote this giving our time trying to grow and improve just like everyone else. We encourage public participation and feedback. We want feedback, we want constructive criticism, we want to hear your concerns, we want new ideas, we want more members, we want to be better and get better so we can grow a reputation as a GREAT program!! So please, please, please reach out to us or come to meetings so we can continue to improve. In order to continue to be the best we can as the AYS board and as a community we need to all remember what AYS really is. AYS is our kids, our coaches, our parents, our board members, our volunteers, and we need to all come together as an "Us". As a board we want/need your support and we want the community we serve to know we're not here to be an "Us vs. you/them" we're here to come together and be an "Us".

Are you a part of our AYS V.I.P Club, if not would you like to be???
AYS NEEDS our community members support! We are always looking for volunteers to help in all areas of the program! Now you can feel good about your contribution AND earn credit towards a $40 voucher. Every person donating 10 hours of their time to AYS will receive a voucher worth up to $40.00. What a great way to keep costs down for everyone and keep some money in your own pocket while your child enjoys learning a new sport or learning new skills in a sport they already play!
With the fall season quickly approaching, we will have lots of volunteer needs! If you are interested in volunteering and becoming part of the V.I.P Club, please join our AYS V.I.P Club group page! We will use this page to put out all our upcoming volunteer opportunities!

Youth sports have a huge impact on children and our community. They give our youth help with physical and motor development, as well as psychological and social benefits. Unfortunately, there has been a major decline in the number of youth sport volunteers in our area, which leads to a decrease in the quality of our AYS Program. Without volunteers, our AYS organization is having difficulty providing the same programs and/ or the same quality of programs to the youth in our community. This saddens us at AYS. At this current time, we have 80+ boys who are eagerly awaiting the start of our Boys Basketball season. Which we haven’t been able to start because we don’t have enough coaches at this time. With this being said, we are currently looking for a head coach for 2 of our grade 5-8th teams. If you are a parent of a boy who has currently signed up and are interested in coaching, please contact AYS Boys Basketball Commissioner Dave Frey at 491-3776 or email@example.com. And don’t forget about our Coaching VIP Program, which waives child’s signup fee for all head coaches. If you don’t have children participating in the program but would love to give back to the youth and the community by stepping up and coaching, please contact the AYS Boys Basketball Commissioner, also!! Thanks!

Payment & Participation- Signup fees are due for all programs at time of resignation or before season starts. If fee has not be received by the first scheduled game, the athlete will not be able to participate until there is communication with AYS regarding the fee and/or payment arrangements have been discussed and agreed upon by both AYS and concerned party. AYS will suspend any account with a past due balance and prohibit participants from participating in any upcoming sports until balance is paid in full.
With the amount of unpaid signup fees we have currently and the fact that the amount is still rising, we at AYS have no other option then to do these. If you are currently one who has a past due balance with us, please send payment to AYS PO BOX 363 Jay, ME 04239 or log into our sportssignup site ( http://ayssports.sportssignup.com/site )and pay online. If you are having financial hardships, please contact AYS Treasurer to discuss other options. Accts will be suspended as of 2/13/15.

For many years (probably for the life of AYS) there has been an issue with kids (parents) signing up late for sports programs. AYS volunteers have always done their best to not turn kids away from programs. In some towns, sports programs cut off at a certain number of participants and then have a waiting list. Some towns have hard cut off dates and don't take sign ups after a certain date. Late sign ups create many headaches for the organizers of programs in the AYS organization.
The AYS Board of Directors is actively looking at ways to make signups easier for parents. We will be evaluating online signups at the next board meeting which will allow people to sign their kids up from any computer connected to the internet or their mobile devices.
Currently, we are still accepting sign ups for Girls Basketball. Girls Little Hoopsters (PeeWee) sign ups will be happening very soon.
Boys Basketball and Boys Little Hoopsters is closed to sign ups.
We also will be looking at having sign ups further in advance. For example, many communities are already taking sign ups for their spring sports. Doing so earlier gives organizers time to set teams, build schedules and order t-shirts/uniforms. AYS will be exploring this approach as well.

One of the ways that AYS uses to communicate important information is by using a feature of the website that allows us to email all members at once. The advantage to this is reaching out to everyone with one email. A disadvantage is communicating something that does not involve everyone who is emailed. For example, I recently sent out a note about soccer. If your child does not play soccer, then the note was not relevant to you. Please understand that all emails you get from the AYS website are not directed at you, but at the entire AYS nation.
Messages will come from firstname.lastname@example.org. Please add them to your contact list so they go to your inbox and not your spam/junk folder

One of the questions most often asked is "What days will my child practice on?"
Until teams and coaches are set, this is a very difficult question to answer. Practice times and days are set by the coaches who volunteer their time. Like most of us, they are juggling jobs, family life and other commitments so practice days and times may vary during the season. Most coaches try to set a practice schedule at the start of the season, but depending on the sport, the weather sometimes dictates when practices or make up games will be held.
