Access Sports and The Christian Basketball Youth Association (CBYA) have created a partnership to provide access to the fundamentals of basketball to kids in grades Pre-Kindergarten through 6th throughout the State of Oklahoma!
WAYMAN’S LIGHTNING Youth Basketball League brings the legend of Wayman Tisdale to the forefront of youth basketball. In addition to teaching fundamentals, our program is created to build character and sportsmanship in a Christ-like manner through a set of game rules Pre-Kindergarten through 2nd grade. These rules allow all the players on the floor to participate instead of one or two players taking over the game. Nobody’s name brings these qualities to bear quicker than Wayman Tisdale. Access Sports is happy to sponsor/support this program through the Wayman Tisdale National Freshman Basketball Player of The Year Award to be presented each year to the most outstanding NCAA Division One freshman basketball player, along with three other national college basketball honors, during the College Basketball Awards presented by Devon Energy at the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum April 15, 2013. The mission of our partnership is to provide financially disadvantaged youth access to organized sports activities through basketball leagues and tournaments.
