Boys Basketball - ...TRADITION GETS SPECIAL ADD-ON IN 2015...

For the past 22 years, New York Metropolitan has played the championship games for each age group and division of its Boys Basketball District Championships on Memorial Day. This has grown into one of the premier events on the New York basketball calendar! Each player is told before their game that they are now are part of a very special group of New York basketball players since anyone who is anyone coming out of New York played at the AAU Championship Monday event at one point in their career. A total of 31 games were played at the Island Garden and the Brewster Sports Center. Both facilities were completely packed and the excitement was phenomenal. The games went off without a hitch, the sportsmanship was outstanding and the competition was truly impressive.
Since NY Metropolitan AAU Championship Monday is played on Memorial Day, we honor those who have served or are currently in our military.
This year we sold tee shirts that the District purchased. We charged only $5.00 per shirt and were able to sell over 125 shirts. Every penny from those sales plus an additional donation from the NY AAU Treasury came to $1,000.00 which was donated to the Wounded Warriors Project to assist those veterans who have given so much for all of us.
It was a donation that came from the hearts of all the participants of Championship Monday!
It was a great day for AAU Basketball here in New York. We look forward to continuing this tradition for many years to come. AAU Basketball is alive and strong in New York.

Girl's Basketball - New York Metro Girls Basketball in Need of Support!

New York Metro Girls Basketball in Need of Support!

A Statement from Jim Fox, Governor:

The New York Metro district has been facing some trials when it comes to the development and retention of our girls’ basketball division. With a growth of only 3% this year, we need to find a new way to bring in new athletes to our programs.

Our DI and DIII championships were canceled over a lack of participation, and DII only has two teams going onto AAU Nationals.

Our district has always produced athletes that have shown the AAU community how talented our district is and we need to get Girls Basketball back to that level of competitive achievement. The District attempted to have a National Regional event to try and catalyst new members and larger participation, but a lack of interest resulted.

“We are concerned for the future viability of AAU Girls Basketball both on a district and National level. This issue is something that other AAU organizations are dealing with as well.”

As a whole we would like to encourage players, old, current, and perspective, to help us in a revival of what was once a premier sport to come out of our district. We are in high hopes of coming back full force next season, but we need your help!
