Picture Day – Travel Program
Linhoff Photography is the official photographer of the EBA again this year! Picture Day for our Travel Program takes place on November 20 and 21. Please refer to your Team Calendar for the date and time of your session. All Travel families should have received an email last week from Linhoff with important ‘step by step’ instructions for managing the picture day experience. If you cannot locate this email, not to worry. A representative from Linhoff (other than their photographers) will be at Picture Day to answer any questions. SAVE THE DATE: House & Rec Picture Day is Saturday, January 20.

Senior High Rec Program Registration
Registration for our 9th-12th Grade Rec Programs will remain open until Thursday, November 30. “Senior High” Rec is for boys and girls who aren’t participating in their high school programs, but still enjoy playing the game of basketball. We hope your son or daughter will consider joining this fun program this season. For more information click on the Programs tab at the top of the EBA homepage, navigate to the Rec page and select either 9th-12th Grade Boys or Girls. Otherwise, CLICK HERE to register.

Timberwolves & Lynx Holiday Clinic
We are pleased to announce that the EBA is partnering with the Minnesota Timberwolves organization again this season. As part of this partnership, the Timberwolves & Lynx Academy will be hosting a Holiday Skills Clinic on Saturday, December 23 at the EHS Activity Center. All campers will receive a City Edition Jersey plus a chance to win exclusive Wolves & Lynx prizes. The Holiday Clinic is open to players in 3rd-7th grade. CLICK HERE to register.

K-8th Grade Open Gym
Additional Open Gym dates have been added to the calendar for the months of November, December, January, and February! CLICK HERE for dates and times. Open Gym will be held in the City Gym at the Edina Community Center unless otherwise specified on the website. Open gym is being offered so players can work on their basketball fundamentals. Full and half-court games are prohibited. All players must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. 

Amazon Affiliate Program
Just in time for the holidays, the EBA has been approved by Amazon to participate in its affiliate marketing program. Amazon affiliate marketers earn up to 8% commission on all things purchased using a unique url specific to their account. The EBA’s objective is to evaluate the potential of using affiliate marketing (on a larger scale) as a fundraising source. More information will be communicated about this program in the coming days. All revenue generated using this program will be split evenly between the EHS boys and girls basketball programs.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
