Due to the adjusted/safety school plans of Albemarle County, Charlottesville City, private schools and other neighboring counties for the 2020-21 school year, and VABA’s dependence on servicing our winter league participants via the use of these facilities for team practices and game-sites, VABA has made accommodations to its typical winter league calendar. Despite the unforeseen circumstances, VABA’s priorities remain consistent: Safety, Sportsmanship, Mission-centered, Strong Leadership, Character Development, Professionally-trained/High-quality coaching & instruction, Organizational excellence.
VABA is utilizing the Virginia High School League (VHSL) as a baskteball-specific guide for practice and games.
