New York Ratz Coaches and Families,

We want to first thank you for your commitment and trust the past year as we come to an end of our first year of Boys AAU. We strive to provide an experience that assists not only in the growth of the athletes on the court, but their growth off the court as well.

As the Spring Season comes to an end, we want to provide you all with an important update as we move forward into summer possibilities and our fall season. The New York Ratz Director of Boys AAU, Coach Craig Railo, will no longer be assisting the program moving forward. At this time we want to provide you all with his contact info as well as say we want any and all athletes, families & coaches that wish to remain part of his AAU program in the future, do just that! We have had nothing but a positive experience with Coach Railo and have tremendous feedback in regards to the teams he has coached and currently coaches. 

We urge all athletes and coaches that wish to continue coaching and playing for him to reach out to him directly! 


For any families looking to continue participating with the New York Ratz, please visit for Summer AAU Tryout details. Any potential coaches interested in opportunities should contact co-owner Dustin VanLieu directly via text or email:

Cell: 845-649-3818


Again, we want to clearly state that we have no intentions of "stealing" players or coaches and hope that we are, in no way, portraying that message and that no one else conveys that message either now or in the future. 

Again, thank you for your participation in the New York Ratz Program! We look forward to seeing you on the court soon.


Dustin & Ryan VanLieu
