MIBBBC Spring Training and Memorial Day Tournament

The booster club (MIBBBC) is hosting a six-week spring program for players in 9th-11th grades to continue developing together via twice weekly trainings, culminating in a tournament over Memorial Day Weekend in the Vancouver WA area. We understand that this time of year a lot of players are doing other sports or participating in AAU programs, so attending all trainings is not required.

Here are the details:

  • Program duration: April 15-May 27
  • Grades: 9th-11th
  • Training times: Mon & Wed from 7:30-9 PM, MIHS or IMS
