Slide 1: GREATER CENTRAL TEXAS YOUTH ASSOCIATION ATX-BOYS BASKETBALL PROGRAM 2007 PROGRAM OVERVIEW :  Who is GCTYA The mission of the Greater Central Texas Youth Association (GCTYA) is to "Enrich the minds, bodies and spirits or our participants, through academics and athletics."  We strive to be an alternative to the various negative elements which compete for the attention of our youth.  Our organization offers mentorship programs, tutorial assistance, opportunities to participate in community service projects, as well as an exciting basketball experience.  The GCTYA is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) certified organization, registered with the Internal Revenue Service.  Who are the ATX Boys The ATX Boys is a program of the GCTYA.  The name ATX Boys is an acronym which stands for "Austin Texas Backbone of Youth Sports."  It consists of a group of young men and women ranging from elementary to high school ages.  These young people represent all areas of the city of Austin and surrounding communities with three things in common:  academic excellence, social achievement and pure unadulterated basketball talent.  The program was started in 1995 by a handful of committed parents who were determined to give their kids an opportunity to compete in the game of basketball at the AAU (Amateur Athletics Union) national level. Slide 3: “ATX-BOYS” Basketball Operations Mission Statement The overall goal of GCTYA Basketball Operations is to expose all players to the highest level of competition through AAU sanctioned events, NCAA certified tournaments and elite level basketball camps. To assist players in developing and improving their overall basketball skills and their male mannerism to prepare them for the next level of collegiate academics and athletics. We want to help all players gain exposure to college recruiters through the tournaments and media and provide players with information about college tuition assistance, grants and scholarship qualifications. We will also encourage players to participate in volunteer activities centered around giving back to the Greater Austin community.
