Red Deer Minor Basketball Association was established as a Non-Profit Organization in 2011. In the first season we had roughly 70 players aged 12-17. We continue to grow each year as an organization and have incorporated training academy’s and U5, U7, U9, U11, U13, U15 and U17 teams.
We align our principles of development and player growth with Alberta Basketball Association, NBA Jr., and Canada Basketball Association. Our coaches are veteran players who are also qualified through NCCP courses. They focus on skill development and encourage the overall growth of the athlete through practice drills and game play.
We strive to design and develop fundamental skills, sportsmanship, and a love for the game of basketball. Our goal is to allow all participants the opportunity to maximize their potential, while promoting the importance of basketball as a vehicle to build character, discipline, and self-esteem.
We strive to share our passion for the game with each and every young athlete who wants to join RDMBA.
