*Grade 9 consideration:
|AMBA and CMBA will allow a grade 9 player (who has made their high school team) to continue playing with our organization; however, players should check with their school coach and school rules to determine if they can play for both teams. For details see ASAA Bylaws & Policy.|
As well, grade 9 players should assess whether they are able to provide the time and commitment required to play for both teams. If a grade 9 player must leave AMBA due to making their high school team a refund is not provided. If a team must fold, due to not having enough remaining players, those players that did not elect to leave AMBA will be provided with a pro-rated refund. Please see our Refund policy for details.
Teams are created based on the skill level of the player, using evaluation information. The AMBA team formation committee has the best interests of the individual player and teams as a whole when placing players. We will not accept requests to play on a specific team as each player is placed where they will have the most opportunity to learn and grow, while seeing as much court time as possible.
The intention is to place teams of similar skill level together to create a fun and competitive season. It’s important that players and parents do not focus on the division level they are placed at.
