Exciting VABA programs on the horizon!

Labor Day is the day we honor and celebrate all of those in our nation who work.  Enjoy your day off and the coming of fall!

For VABA, Labor Day marks the day we begin focusing our energies and our VABA Family-wide communication toward the exciting, up-coming pre-season offerings!

This month we will be holding our pre-season Winter League (JBL & VDBL) Evaluations as we begin team formation.  During this time, our staff will be working with individuals and small groups, through specific training sessions, in preparation for the upcoming season. 

Winter League registration has resulted in an amazing turnout, and VABA, once again, will be organizing upwards of 170 -180 teams.  Recreational League teams are coming together as well!   

One of the most critical elements of a successful winter league is our coaches.  If you are interested in being (and being trained as) a VABA Coach, we are accepting applications.  No experience is necessary - we will provide the necessary coaching resources to make you an excellent coach.  We are always in need of good coaches, so please complete our team commitment and coaches application.  Coaching Workshops will be held Sunday, October 14 and Thursday, November 1 (VABA coaches are required to attend at least one coaches workshop).

At the end of September, VABA will begin its 12th year of the best pre-season preparation program, the Fall Skills Academy!  Dynamic, exciting skills sessions will inspire our basketball athletes and teach the essential offensive skills needed to have a successful season!  VABA will be offering six (6) Sunday Skills Sessions (starting September 30) and eight (8) weekday sessions on Wednesdays & Thursdays.  If interested, register now for our 2018 Fall Skills Academy as our staff eagerly helps you prepare for the upcoming season.  The Fall Skills Academy includes amazing Performance Training sessions as well as Open Gym sessions (on Sundays) with 5-on-5 scrimmages!

Ladies, don't forget about our "Girls Night Out!" event on Saturday, September 29th!

VABA is also looking for Team Sponsors to help support VABA's Scholarship Program.  All those interested in helping provide opportunities to all of our community's youth, please step up to be a Winter League Team Sponsor!

Thank you, to our entire VABA Family, for your loyalty and support of our program as we continue the pursuit of our mission: "Building Character and Shaping Lives through the Game of Basketball."
