Give to the Max Day
For over a decade, has facilitated an online fundraising event called Give to the Max Day. During this special 24-hour period, nonprofits and schools across Minnesota are recognized and celebrated for work they do. This year, Give to the Max Day is on Thursday, November 17. We invite you to participate in Give to the Max Day by making a small donation to the EBA in support our financial aid program. This year, the EBA granted more than $15,000 worth of financial aid for deserving families in our community. CLICK HERE to help bring this program to more families in 2023!

Sportsmanship Reminders
In order to focus on sportsmanship, reduce conflict and increase team and game official retention, the MYAS and Youth 1st are continuing their commitment to the Conduct 1st Environment with zero tolerance for inappropriate behavior. The Edina Basketball Association fully supports this partnership and is also committed to upholding the standards of the Conduct 1st Environment across all its programs. REMEMBER… It’s about the kids. I WILL… Keep my competitive energy in check. I WILL ALWAYS… Treat officials and opponents with respect.

Keep Hoop’n Everyone!!!
