The regualr season of NYO basketball has wrapped up, with the play-offs, and NYO's version of March madness, now on tap.  Most leagues will end their season with a single elimination play-off tournament, involving all of the teams in that league.  The Majors; X-League; and Seniors championship will be held consecutively on Saturday, February 22, in the Chastain gym, as we celebrate "Championship Week-End."  More details on those games will follow.

The A League NYO Dawgs verses the A League NYO Gators seemed to embrace a lot of what NYO stands for - hard work, determination, and a winning attitude coupled with great sportsmanship.  The game was won in overtime by 1 point by a team that mounted a tremendous comeback. But in my mind, both teams were winners as fans, coaches and these 8 -9 year old boys created a contagious spirit that permeated the NYO gym.  The few tears shed by the loosing team quickly evaporated when players on both sides exchanged high fives. Parents watching in the stands could only marvel at the maturity displayed on both sides.  It was no doubt a "feel good" moment and symbolic of the quality and character of the program we strive for at NYO.  As we head into playoffs, we hope you and your family truly enjoyed your NYO basketball season. -WK

The AA Wildcats coached by Jeff Schultz and David Batka had the incredible honor of playing a scrimmage during half time of the Atlanta Hawks game last Friday Dec 13th. Ryan Cameron, whose son Cayden plays for the NYO Wildcats, is the Voice of the Atlanta Hawks. Not only did he arrange the scrimmage, but he announced each player's name as they ran onto the Hawks Court. As an extra highlight, the team got to meet Shaquille O'Neal while waiting in the tunnel for the half time show. It was an experience these nine year olds are not likely to forget.
