Players from 6 to 17 are eligible to participate in the NEBA program.
Every player requires the following marked items to play basketball:
Team jerseys and the shorts will be provided to the coaches when they pick up their equipment. Additional shorts may be purchased from the NEBA executive thru the playing season. Uniforms and shorts sizing is available on this website, or they can be sized at the AGM/registration. Bring your child to the registration if you do not know what size uniform they require.
The Basketball Season - U11 thru U18
Practices start the last week of September. The season will start the first week of October and runs until the first weekend prior to spring break. Practices are held one night during the week Monday thru Friday. Games are generally played on Saturdays or Friday evenings, an odd Sunday morning as well. The A/B program games are on weekdays. Games are played in Edmonton, and surrounding area. Breaks in the schedule will occur when school gymnasiums are closed for long weekends and school events.
