CMBA has Released the Technical Package for 2024 Spring League - See our spring league page for more information - https://airdriebasketball.ca/content/spring-league
The Spring Ball program is not currently offered through AMBA (Airdrie Minor Basketball Association) or community zones like the regular Fall and Winter CMBA seasons. Spring basketball consists of individually organized teams, various clubs, and some community teams. Teams operate independently, deciding on their schedules, practice frequency, leagues, tournaments, and fees. The "season" can align with the CMBA Spring League or extend beyond based on tournaments entered.
AMBA Members are encouraged to form their own teams, considering factors like practice schedules, commitment, roster size, coaching support, and team management. Practice facilities can be booked through Rocky View Schools or private facilities like Genesis Place, VollyDome, or St Minas.
Teams should maintain similar-sized rosters and support structures as in the AMBA program. The team manager plays a more active role during the Spring League. Planning the game schedule involves considering costs for league play and tournaments. Costs and commitments should be discussed with all team members to ensure a successful season.
For those part of AMBA, assistance is offered, including the use of uniforms and AYBC membership for insurance. Players can "play up," but it's advised to limit this to the division they'll enter in the fall season. Teams looking for AMBA assistance should designate one representative to coordinate with the association.
Individuals interested in forming/joining teams are encouraged to connect with their current AMBA team first or contact AMBA Jason Diebolt - email@example.com) and expand from there. AMBA is open to assisting with team formation, providing guidance on uniforms, insurance, and other logistics. Further details and resources can be found on the CMBA league information page.
