With the Grand Opening of the Dodge Jones Youth Sports Center on February 21, 2020, AYSA’s time has been spent planning for a lot of EXCITING events that will provide you (or your student athletes) a place to come the entire Spring and Summer!



February 21, 2020, we officially opened the doors of the Dodge Jones Youth Sports Center! The Opening Ceremony was heavily attended by the community, and extremely well received. We are SO EXCITED!

February 22, one day after opening, AYSA hosted a very successful youth basketball camp, made even more incredible by the guest appearance of NBA Player Bruce Bowen!

The 2020 West Texas All Youth Expo event and fundraiser, held on February 29th at the brand new Dodge Jones Youth Sports Center, was a huge success for AYSA and the community.

signups for 2021 vendor space reservations are currently open – contact us for 2021 vendor form.



MARCH MADNESS is a two-day basketball tournament occurring March 21 – March 22.

Playing sports is like living life – the fundamental skills must be learned, practiced, and turned into habits (character) in order to truly succeed and grow! When the pressures build in a close game or in areas of our lives, our performance always falls to the level of skills that we have made our normal habits (character). Competition REVEALS our skills (character) more than it BUILDS our skills (character).


Firm Foundation Academies provide fun, challenging, and encouraging environments where youth learn to develop the skills they need to succeed in their sports and in their lives. Firm Foundation athletes receive quality instructions, COOL T-SHIRTS, and a comprehensive handbook for them to continue their development at home with their parents and friends.
