Athletics

The benefits of participating in youth athletics go beyond physical health. Our programs develop more than skills—they develop character, learn sportsmanship, teamwork, and the values of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility. Your child will make new friends, learn new skills, and gain self-confidence while participating in fun athletics programs.

Pay-What-You-Can Program

The AYCC wants to ensure that the cost of the fee is not a barrier to playing recreational basketball. The AYCC is offering a ‘pay-what-you-can’ payment model for various athletic programs. This means any youth can register for the program and pay what you can in increments of $10, ranging from $0 to $100.

The AYCC is committed to providing this opportunity to youth throughout the 2023-2024 athletic seasons and wants to see this model succeed but needs the community’s help to make it work.

It costs $65 per child to run each program, including sports supplies, t-shirts, staffing, utilities, support services, etc. The AYCC is asking those who can afford to do so to pay the $65 registration fee or consider paying more to offset the program costs of those who cannot afford to pay the $65 rate. Any individual registration fee paid above and beyond the $65 cost to operate the program will be considered a tax-deductible donation to the AYCC.

Pay What You Can Program is available on the following youth sports:

  • Cal Ripken Youth Baseball (T-Ball, Rookies, Minors & Majors)
  • USA Youth Softball (8U, 10U, and 12U)
  • Recreational Youth Basketball (Fall 2023)
  • Travel Youth Basketball (Fall 2023)
  • Fall Youth Cheering (Fall 2023)

Equipment and Clothing Needs

The parents or guardian of any youth from the AYCC Burger-Roy After School Program, Preschool Program or North End Learning Center who need a basketball or related clothing can request them for free as part of the AYCC’s new Family Wellness Wraparound Program. This program, spearheaded by U.S. Congresswoman Chellie Pingree and made possible by Congressional funding, aims to improve the health, food security and well-being of Waterville families.

Volunteer or Officiate

The AYCC is always looking for talented, passionate volunteer coaches to share their sports passions with the youth in our area.  We cannot do it without volunteers and youth can’t participate in games without officials!

If you’re interesting in coaching or in officiating with the AYCC, please reach out to our athletics team at 207-873-0684 or email athletics@clubaycc.org

Stay tuned for officiating clinics with the AYCC.

Volunteers are required to complete an AYCC volunteer application and pass a background check through the State of Maine DHHS. Find the application here.
