Fall Player Development

Fall 2019 Player Development Programs

The 2019 Fall program has been changed from previous formats.

The programs for grades 4-8 are designed for preparing travel players for evaluations, and the upcoming Winter season.

Sunday's in September $65 (September 8, 15, 22, 29) - $65
September 8 & 15 Time:
Grades 4-6: 4pm-5:30pm
Grades 7-8: 5:30pm-7pm

Players will work with shooting machines, perform intense ball handling drills, scrimmage, and improve conditioning over an hour and a half window on September 8 & 15.  The last 2 Sunday's in September (22 & 29), teams will be formed, and players will be competing in MYAS Fall tournaments/games.  There will be no team practices in preparation for these games.  The intent is to give players some competitive action before evaluations and the season.  Registration is $65 per player.

Grades 1-3 Fall Clinic- Saturdays (September 14, 21, 28) - $30
The focus of these 3 sessions is an introduction to basketball and learning the fundamentals and skills for playing basketball. All sessions will be run by the High School Coaching Staff and players. Sessions will be tailored to the age and ability level of 1st-3rd grade players with the primary goal of learning, skill development and fun!

Fall Training Camp (Mon & Wed; 9/09 - 10/2) - $90

A typical session will consist of skill development drills (Shooting, ball handling, 1 on 1 moves, footwork), 1 on 1, 3 on 3, 5 on 5 games, and evaluation preparedness. The focus of the workouts will be on improving individual fundamentals and building team chemistry as players enter their winter season!

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%-100% 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. 

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

  • Register for financial assistance: Click Here
  • Include your free/reduced verification letter in the registration
  • You will only need to submit the verification letter one time per school year.
  • Allow 1-2 business days to receive a code to use during checkout for the program registration.

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.
