Welcome to The Ashburn Youth Basketball League - serving 3rd through 8th graders living in the Trailside, Stone Hill, Eagle Ridge and Belmont Ridge Middle School Boundaries, as well as 9-12th graders in the Rock Ridge, Briar Woods and Stone Bridge High School boundaries. AYBL is a 501c3 youth basketball organization, run by all volunteers, that operates in coordination with the Loudoun County Department of Parks, Recreation and Community Services (PR&CS). AYBL is one of the affiliated Loudoun County youth baskebtall league that are centered on each of the middle schools in Loudoun County.
Below you will find a link to the 4th Annual "Give Back" Tip Off Tournament.
This October the AYBL family suffered a loss of one its long time coaches - Marc Mangum. Marc had been coaching with us for over the last decade at various age groups. This year we Give Back to his family in support of his the scholarship fund set up for his four children, his youngest son is currently playing in our leauge. You can read more about Marc at http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/marcmangum. For games on Saturday December 5th, we are asking that each adult donate at least $1 in support of our Give Back event.
We are also again supporting Back Pack Buddies through our annual food drive. Back Pack Buddies is an organization that ensure children in our schools and our community do not go hungry over the weekend. Back Pack Buddies provides each child with a weekend supply of non-perishable food that they take home with them on Friday afternoons as they head home from school for the weekend.

Beginning in the 2012-2013 season, Two Ridges (T2RBL) began an initiative to "Give Back" to the community in which we serve - this started with our annual T2RBL Holiday "Give Back" Tip-Off Tournament. Youth Sports teaches more than just the game, youth sports teach a number of life lessons that we all use in our daily lives as we get older and stop playing the games we will always love.
In 2012-2013 Two Ridges raised approximately $2000 to help the DiGiovanna scholarship fund after Tony's passing. The funds raised helped his 4 children with their continuing education costs later in life. In addition to raising these funds, the Two Ridges community also collected over 1000lbs of food to support Loudoun Interfaith relief and their efforts to provide food across Loudoun.
At our 2013-2014 Tip Off Tournament, Two Ridges experienced another loss in our community with the passing of Gavin Rupp earlier in the year; you can read more about Gavin through the link on the left "Our Promise to #15." Gavin passed away after a nearly 3 year battle with cancer. Together our community raised $5000 which was donated to Children's National Medical Center on his behalf to help fund childhood cancer research and care for children battling the disease.
Later in the 2013-2014 season Two Ridges was approached by Central Loudoun Basketball League (CLBL) to host an All-Star event that benefitted a Loudoun County charity. Together, with the help of Loudoun Sports Alliance (LSA); we launched what will now be an annual event - the Loudoun Charity Basketball Classic (LBCC). With teams participating from T2RBL, CLBL and Western Loudoun (WLBL), together we raised $10,000 in support of Gabriella Miller's Smashing Walnuts Foundation. T2RBL and CLBL along with LSA are already in the processing of planning for the 2nd Annual LBCC that will take place on March 13-15th of 2015.
For the 2014-15 season, operating under our new name of AYBL, we chose to support two charities close to home for all of us. The first is BackPack Buddies, which helps supply food to the nearly 11,000 children in Loudoun County that are considered to be food "insecure." What that means it that there are 11,000 children that when they go home from school on Fridays, they may or may not have enough food to eat over the weekend. BackPack Buddies helps supply these children with easy to prepare meals over the course of the weekend so they don't go hungry until Monday. We also chose to support Tragedy Assistance Program (TAPS) - TAPS provides support to families who have lost loved ones in our armed services fighting for our freedom overseas as well as law enforcement right her at home. Through the donations collected during our 3rd Annual "Give Back" Tip Off tournament, we will pledge a donation to support families who are greiving a recent loved one.
