An important reminder from Gainesville Basketball Association: Please mark your calendars for September 1. This is when our registration will start for all winter programs (including Winter Recreation, Winter Travel & Winter Recreation Coaching). As always, we sell out quick so please make sure to register in very early September to reserve your spot. Due to the high number of league participants and our fixed capacity of gym space, we will again keep a wait-list for families that register after we hit our cap limits.
Registration is on-line; on Sept 1 go to the following link to register:
We always need good volunteers to coach. Experience is not required. Training and support will be provided. When you volunteer to coach, you get to pick your practice night and location within our control. We will have to turn children away if we cannot recruit enough good coaches.
