Financial Aid/Assistance

To achieve our goal of allowing more boys the opportunity to play basketball, the SBBA Board of Directors has developed a Financial Aid program.  This ensures that any boy, regardless of financial situation, will have the opportunity to play basketball. 

The SBBA Basketball Financial Program details are the following:

  • For ALL Programs: SBBA will reduce fees by 50% of the full cost of the registration fee, (including the Travel fee when applicable), if the player is a recipient of a free or reduced school lunch. 
  • As part of the registration process, there will be a checkbox to be marked and a code to be entered if the player has requested financial aid. Feature not available until Fall 2019.

Steps to applying for Financial Aid:  Parents requesting financial aid for the program should:

  • send an email to with a subject line of: "Financial Aid Request 
  • attach a verification letter from the school stating that you qualify for free and/or reduced school lunch. 
  • You will receive a code to use during checkout of the online registration, in which you’ll enter the received code.
  • The request will need to be repeated for each registration throughout a school calendar year, then again annually as applicable.
  • You will only need to submit the verification letter one time per school year.

The following is not covered by financial aid:

  • A $100 check to be used as deposit requiring parents to work their designated shifts at the SBBA Basketball Tournament needs to be provided to the Travel Director on or before the first day of the travel evaluations. 
  • If the parents decline to help at the SBBA Tournament, the $100 will be used to reimburse the SBBA for the hiring of tournament workers. Deposit checks from players whose parents work their assigned shifts will be destroyed.
