The Difference Between DYSports and Other Tournaments
  • Comparable Playing Field

We carefully screen each team that registers for a tournament, providing a questionnaire at registration, along with evaluating their past performance, records, and placement in other tournaments. This process ensures they are a suitable fit for a developmental-level tournament, allowing us to match them against similarly skilled teams.

  • Manageable Tournaments

We recognize that athletes have physical limits and other events in their lives, and hosting events with more than a minimum of three games tends to wear athletes down rather than build them up. Three games provide a balanced opportunity for athletes and teams to develop their skills without taxing them or their weekends.

  • Ability to Develop

Our goal is for developing teams to compete and enhance their game. DYSports was not established to give everyone a trophy—some of life’s best lessons come from setbacks and losses. However, more equal competition will better spur youth development. Because in the end it is not how you started but how you finished your career.

  • Teachable Moments

We understand that teaching becomes challenging when your team is significantly outmatched. Comparable competition allows teams to work on recently learned skills, run play sets, and enjoy the game. Our level of play enables coaches to focus on the fundamentals of the game, teaching their athletes and helping them build a strong foundation.

Exceptionally run developmental tournaments for girls and boys basketball teams. DYSports tournaments are an amazing middle ground for kids to keep playing and getting better. Everyone in the Seattle basketball community should know about DYSports!
