North Bay Basketball Academy is committed to providing competitive club/travel opportunities to all athletes interested in improving their skills prior to the start of their CYO and high school seasons.
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 75 minutes. One TEAM practice each week following the schedule listed below. The second practice each week will be a skills clinic on the night that works best in your child's schedule and this is included in the season dues. Winter Skills Schedule
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.
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.
