North Bay Basketball Academy is committed to providing competitive Club opportunities to all athletes interested in improving their skills at the conclusion of their CYO or High School seasons. NBBA will offer a dual team structure, NBBA Select and NBBA Club, at each grade level.
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:
Given the fact the costs for the team remain constant, the dues for the season remain the same.
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.
All practices are scheduled in advance and players are expected to attend practices. Teams will normally practice twice per week for 90 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.
* HS practices locations will vary depending upon registration.
Every effort will be made to maintain the practice schedule. However, NBBA will have to adapt to the needs of the San Rafael School District.
NBBA players with advanced fundamental skills who have committed themselves to becoming the best basketball players possible are invited to participate on NBBA Select. These players have excelled in their high school leagues and are amongst the best in their age/grade. They have committed to playing a longer season (March - July) and will be exposed to the best possible competition. This team will practice twice per week will participate in local tournaments and/or out of state tournaments. The NBBA staff is very careful in placing an athlete on a team that best fits their individual skill level so they can play and develop.
