2016-2017 Travel Basketball Coaches
CBAA Basketball would like to thank all of our volunteers who helped to make the 2015-2016 season one of our best ever. With your help, CBAA Basketball was able to provide a great season of hoops to almost 1400 kids in our community. We had a fantastic season which was capped off with a thrilling March Madness Tournament. A gallery of the league champions can be found below. Thanks again for all your help!

- NO ball playing or bouncing of balls in the hallway.
- Visitors are only permitted in the gym and hallway leading to the gym. Nobody should be going to other areas of the building.
- Please use the bathrooms in the hallway down from the gym and throw all paper towels in the trash.
- NO food in the gym… only water bottles and/or sports drinks for players.
- Please clean up and throw away all trash prior to leaving the building.
- Children should be accompanied by adults at all times.
- No person is permitted to sit on any stage.
CBAA Basketball will be offering a Boys 9th/10th Travel Team that will participate in the ICBA League and play in 3-4 tournaments. Practices will begin in late November.
