NBBA Coaching Staff

The vast majority of NBBA coaches are current or former North Bay varsity, assistant varsity, junior varsity or freshman coaches, as well as former college/pro players.


Parents are not allowed to coach their child in the NBBA program.


 

What if I Play Another Sport?

It is possible for student-athletes to participate in the NBBA Travel Season while playing another spring sport. However, NBBA requires the student-athlete to meet the following requirements:

  • Student-athletes must attend at least one (1) practice per week and 8 of the 12 games.


Given the fact the costs for the team remain constant, the dues for the season remain the same.

Team Placement / Practices

All practices are scheduled in advance and players are expected to attend practices. Teams will normally practice twice per week for 75 minutes. Every effort will be made to follow practice schedules as closely as possible, however, things happen. Please be flexible and cooperative when practice schedules need to be changed.


As there are school activities and other commitments, which may conflict with practice from time to time, coaches will work with players and parents individually in those cases. To emphasize player responsibility, the player (and not the parent) who will miss a practice is expected to notify the coach ahead of time that he will miss practice and the reason why. Program basketball players are expected to commit themselves to a rigorous practice schedule, and their team depends on them to do so. Playing time will be affected by unexcused absences or tardiness.



Team Placement: August 28 - 31

There will be at least one team at each grade level. All players are required to attend a team placement practice the week of August 28 - 31.


Every effort will be made to follow practice schedules as closely as possible, however, things happen. Please be flexible and cooperative when practice schedules need to be changed.
