Dear, VABA Family!

Please complete the Summer Interest Form today so we can learn your family's needs and interests and better serve you!

Last week, VABA began promoting its dates and plan for 2021 Summer Camps.  This included an outdoor facility and required mask-wearing for all campers/coaches.  However, after sending this email, we received a great deal of feedback from very sincere VABA Families expressing credible concerns regarding the combination of heat, humidity, and mask-wearing.  While it seemed everyone appreciated VABA's attempt to replicate the Polar Bear Basketball League by conducting summer camp outdoors, the challenges of sweaty masks, humid air, and strenuous/aerobic activity brought about other safety concerns. 

VABA has elected to take its camps indoors in a cool, air-conditioned gym - however, all campers and coaches will remain masked (along with other COVID precautions and safety-measures).  VABA's maximum capacity for all camps will be reduced to only 40.    These will be fun, intimate basketball learning centers with a high level of close attention by our trained & knowledgeable VABA Coaches, including Coaches D'Alessandro, Wildy and Kirby!

2021 marks the 24-year anniversary that VABA has been running camps!  These are popular, dynamic programs and a unique combination of fun and quality, inspiring basketball teaching.  VABA Summer Camps usually fill fast - and, this will be especially true since we're limiting them to the first forty (40) campers!

On-line Summer Camp Registration opens on Sunday, March 14 @ 8:00 am! 
Again, programs will be limited to only 40 campers. 

These are some of the very best summer basketball camps in the country - and, they're in our backyard right here in Charlottesville, VA!  Exciting, fun and productive - great teaching and training by professional coaches!

We're looking forward to the BEST SUMMER IN VABA HISTORY!
