Each summer after all the regular weekly sessions of the YAS Basketball School have concluded, senior and bantam players who have graduated from the Saskatoon and Regina sessions are invited to return to play in the two-day YAS North-South Ironman Tournament if they wish. The annual YAS North-South Ironman Tournament is competitive and fun. Players look forward to playing in it for many months ahead of time and from year to year. Teams are balanced. Coaches, referees and scorekeepers are highly skilled. Players of all levels of athletic ability and playing experience participate equally and fairly in all of their team’s games.
