MBA Teams

New Players interested in playing with MBA can register now and we will place them on teams during our Team Placement and Tryouts. If you register for the Fall Team program  before the Team Placement and tryouts take place you will be guaranteed a spot on one of our teams. 

Our Team program are designated by the colors:

Red: Our top team and highest skill and commitment level. MBA practices, games and events are the players top priorities.  The cost for the Red team is $650

Gold: Our second highest level of skill and commitment. MBA practices, games and events are the number one priority for these players.   The cost for the Gold team is $650.

White: Our third highest level of skill and/or commitment with MBA as one of many priorities. These teams are typically for multisport players who can commit to most of our practices, games and events but may miss some practices and/or games due to conflicts. Teams compete in league play each season.  The cost for the White team is $600.

All teams will be offered 3 hours of practice each week. Practice will consist of either three 1 hour practices or two 1.5 hour practices depending on permits, coaches schedule and amount of teams overall.

All players must also purchase a uniform Annual Dues of $50.

MBA Coaches sort players onto each team after they are assessed during our tryout process. Players are placed on teams based on their skills, understanding of concepts and commitment. 

All players can move up or down levels to benefit from more playing time, stronger competition and work on different positions. For example a Rim/Center on our highest level core team might be a Wing/Forward on a different team. Our goal is to help all our players at all levels reach their athletic potential, learn and have fun playing the game they love.


We use our teams as a tool to organize players at the beginning of each season. Once the season begins and they practice and compete in games we can always make changes during or after the season depending what is best for each player.

Each team typically has around 10-12 players. We prefer 10 players at each practice so our teams can go live and work on team concepts and compete during practice. Playing time in games is directly influenced during practices. Players attitude, effort, skills, understanding of team concepts along with intangibles will determine playing time during games. 

The benefit of MBA is the training, the practices and the skills development that is done during our pracitices. Players that can execute during practices will be able to execute during games. Players that need more practice and development will get less time in games. All players will have equal time in all practices and training sessions to demonstrate their abilities and earn playing time during games.
