MBA is continuing to plan for summer training sessions with the hope that they can be held as usual. We will postpone or cancel training as needed based on federal and state recommendations and in accordance with stay-at-home orders and other social distancing guidelines. We may have a scenario where we don’t do training in June but start sessions in July/August?? As everything these days, it’s TBD. Stay tuned.
There are many virtual basketball training options available for your youth basketball players during this unprecedented time. MBA will share options on the MBA Facebook page, as well as below are a few. This isn't intended to serve as an endorsement of any particular program, but rather to identify some options for MBA families.
Minnesota Youth Athletic Services (MYAS) has partnered with Trusted Coaches, Pure Intensity Basketball™, Mindful Power™ and the Institute for Athletic Medicine™ to offer a complete home training program for basketball.
Each week there are different camps offered, often for free.

Home Court is an app that may be loaded on any Apple or Android device. It provides ball handling and shooting drills for all skills levels. It will track level and continue to challenge your player as they move through the skills session.
Many of the drills are free; however, there are in app purchases you can make.
Search HomeCourt in your app store.
Many local AAU clubs have been placing drills and videos on YouTube for MN youth basketball players for free. Visit our AAU Club Info page for a listing of local AAU club websites.
To help promote the importance of good sportsmanship and positive conduct, MYAS/Youth First offered a sportsmanship award that each team participating the MYAS Girls Grade State was eligible to receive. The referees for each game determined if each team demonstrated good sportsmanship in games based on players, coaches and parents/fans sportsmanship.
Receiving the award required a team to get a “YES” vote in ALL of their games in the tournament.
Our girls traveling teams participated in this tournament and SEVEN of our teams earned a Youth First Award. Congratulations to the following players, coaches and fans!
