The National Youth All American Report has been instrumental in spring boarding today’s youth athletes to tomorrow stars. Our scouts spend countless hours at youth basketball events. 

We rely a lot on word of mouth, if you know of someone you feel is deserving of being on this report just compete our watch list form and we will send a scout the area to observe the players skill set.

As a matter of policy, we never share which coaches said what about whom, so that coaches will be free to share their assessments. Another policy is that parents’ opinions about their own children are not considered, but you are welcome to provide feedback about honors and other details that may be of help to us in keeping their profiles up to date as well as our challenge of sifting through thousands of players nationwide. That kind of data can be helpful, but the: “How can you not have rated my kid? He/She is awesome” communication, while compelling, will be deleted.

My son is a 2019 Senior from Tampa Fl. I signed him up for the Gold Package. After one week of me signing my son up he received 7 calls from NCAA college coaches.  The simple fact these coaches showed interest in my son, immediately picked up his spirits and gave him a new found confidence. Believe me our entire family has been attacking this dream of his since he was 8 years old.  It was heartbreaking having my son watch others get offers and see them with so much joy and my son being left out in the cold.  We are still in our initial stages but thanks to NYAA we have hope.

My daughter is in the 8th grade from Salt Lake City Utah, I decided to give the NYAA Gold Package a try.  Almost immediately we begin to get phone calls and emails from ESPN and college coaches.  My daughter works really hard and seemed like she played well but she never really was recognized for her accomplishments.  Its great that NYAA will give our children an opportunity to publicized their achievements.
