Dan Cremisino, Boys Varsity Coach Forest Lake High School
We have had teams participate in the the MYAS Fall League year after year because it gives our players an early opportunity to play and compete. The league always provides quality competition and combines it with great facilities and first class organization. Our coaches believe this league gives our kids a valuable improvement opportunity and has been one of the reasons for our in season success. Yearly participation has been a part of our total program and will continue to be!

Bill Kemble, CAA Basketball President
Every fall several teams of Chanhassen Athletic Association (CAA) basketball players participate in the MYAS Gopher State Fall Basketball League. Most of our players utilize this league as a way to gear up for traveling team tryouts and the winter basketball season. Others who may not have a primary fall sport like the league as a bridge between summer and winter activities. The MYAS Gopher State Fall Basketball League is efficiently organized and well run, and offers an appropriate level of competition. I highly recommend it.

Mark Rowland, MN Thunder Director
Minnesota Thunder has had teams in the MYAS fall league since 2000. It has been well run and a lot of fun for the girls. It is a great way to "tune up" for the upcoming winter seasons. I highly recommend it!
