North Bay Basketball Academy (NBBA) is committed to providing quality instruction in all aspects of basketball, with an emphasis on fundamentals and skill development. NBBA will strive to enhance each athlete's skills in an effort to better equip them for their short and long-term goals. Our goal is to give our athletes the necessary skills to perform successfully in basketball and life with an emphasis on sportsmanship, respect, responsibility, leadership and teamwork. These core values set the base of NBBA and create a great environment for players to learn and flourish as leaders on the court and in life.
NBBA has partnered up with Kimo Bear Project, a non-profit agency that provides children with cancer their own Kimo Bear. A Kimo Bear serves as a therapeutic play aid for children during chemotherapy treatments. The partnership was created to provide NBBA athletes with the opportunity to participate with Kimo Bear Project to deliver the bears to children going through chemotherapy. Through this partnership, Kimo Bear will help NBBA athletes that have financial need. Kimo Bear Project and the NBBA's scholarship fund, which is aimed at allowing more youths to participate in our basketball programs, will share support with the sponsor money.
As NBBA seeks to get more exposure in the Club circuit by going to tournaments across the west coast and nationally, the costs start to jump very high, which puts a burden on a majority of families. If we have and are able to attract sponsors to help offset the costs for traveling and lodging for these players, giving them the opportunity to be seen by high-level college basketball programs. The benefits sponsors will see through the growth of NBBA are endless. As NBBA starts to travel nationally and becomes successful at these tournaments, sponsors will get the exposure at the national level and receive a countless number of eyes on their company's products or logo.
NBBA hopes to successfully become an Club program that attracts the best players in Northern California and compete at a very high level against teams nationally, giving our players the exposure they need to have the opportunity to play at the next level. We believe prospective sponsors have the opportunity to gain as much exposure as NBBA does. It is with this main goal of developing responsible youth that we seek sponsors to support our mission. All sponsorship donations are tax deductible.
