Vail Blaze Basketball’s mission is to foster the love of basketball in boys and girls by organizing developmental and competitive teams. We organize boys, girls and co-ed youth basketball teams in the SE Tucson area and Vail. Teams are split into 1/2 grade, 3/4 grade. 5/6 grade, 7/8 grade, high school and/or age-based depending on the league and tournaments. We are currently forming elite and developmental teams. Practices are held indoors at Old Vail Middle School . Games are played on Saturdays throughout the city depending on the league each team is registered. Coaches are generally parent volunteers except at the elite level. Elite teams play in multiple local leagues and will participate in local and Away tournaments.
