If you have lots of lose change laying around and are interested in helping one of our amazing basketball teams win a pizza party while raising funds for our AYS program, then our Penny Wars Fundraiser is for you!! Our In House teams will have a fun friendly competition against each other to see whose team can get the most funds raised. Our travel basketball teams will also have the same competition against each other. There will be a jar for each team in our lobby next to concessions on game days for coin collections. Simply drop your donation in whenever teams jar you are rooting for, to help them be the #1 fundraising team! Funds will be counted prior to last game of season and winners will be announced that day!
Lets make these fundraisers a huge success!

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".
Dave Frey, Nixon Ortiz, Heather Williams, Jenna Rocque, Cindy Ortiz, Angela Newcomb, Dave Nelson, Charlene Nelson, Alan Mitchell, Ashley Draper & Jake Nichols ~AYS Board~

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!
