4th of July Thank You!
Thank you to everyone who participated in the 4th of July Parade! The conditions weren’t ideal, so we really appreciate all of you who came out anyway. We hope the weather will be better next year - we would love to have an even bigger group to represent Edina Hoops!

New Website
The EBA is moving its website to SportsEngine in July! We hope you will find the new platform to be easier to navigate. The mobile version is much better too! Like anything new, there will be a learning curve for everyone, so don’t hesitate to email with any questions. Please note that you need to create a SportsEngine account to register your player for one of our programs.

Travel Program Reminders
Registration for our Travel Program opens on Aug 1. Other important dates include optional Pre-Tryout Clinics the week of September 18 and Tryouts on September 24 and 25 for boys and girls. 5th -8th Grade Boys will have a Team Placement Session on Sunday, October 2. The schedules will be finalized by the end of the month.

Hoop Dreams Start Here!
We know you love basketball and like us, you can’t wait for the season to start this fall. Until then, we hope you spread the word about how much fun it is to play basketball in Edina. Hoop dreams DO start here, and we are committed to doing whatever it takes to help make your player’s basketball experience, the best it can be. CLICK HERE to watch last year’s hype video.
