The 7th and 8th Grade House Program is for boys who enjoy playing basketball recreationally, who are looking to have fun, develop their skills and stay active during the winter months. The goal of all EBA programs is for kids to have the best possible basketball experience so they continue to play the game as long as possible. This program is open to all boys in 7th and 8th grade who live in or attend school in Edina.
