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
“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!
