EGBA is excited to announce a NEW Challenger Basketball Division. This program is created to teach young people with special needs the game of basketball in a caring, coaching environment. Challenger Basketball offers these young athletes the opportunity to participate in the same community sports programs as their typically developing peers.
This new division of EGBA wil bring together special needs and peer athletes in a positive and fun environment with a BUDDY system. Buddies assist the athletes while they are playing, with the shooting and passing performed by the athletes (with assistance from buddies if needed). The emphasis is on skill development.
The Challenger Division is open to athletes from 4 to 18 (or 22 if still enrolled in school with physical or intellectual challenges). There is no cost to participate, and athletes will be issued uniforms to be worn at practice--games on Saturday mornings from Noon to 1 pm at Cole Middle School. The inaugural season will run from Saturday, December 3 to Saturday, February 25. Registration is through our online system. To learn more, or to volunteer to be a buddy, please contact Division Director
