Travel Program Changes
Over the past two months, the EBA Board has approved significant changes for the Travel Program that will go into effect starting with the 2024-25 program year. These changes include the introduction of 3rd Grade teams as well as the establishment of ‘Team Limits’ per gender and grade. To learn more about these changes CLICK HERE.

EBA Scholarships Awarded
Each year, the EBA awards three memorial scholarships to high school seniors in our community. Each $1,000 scholarship is presented to individuals who were positively impacted by one or more EBA programs during their school years. Scholarship winners were recognized at the Awards Breakfast held at the Church of St. Patrick on May 24. This year’s recipients are Dylann Deal, Charlie Greene and Sarah Heinecke. Congratulations!

Join Us for the Edina 4th of July Parade
We are pleased to announce that the EBA will be participating in the Edina 4th of July Parade this year! Our goal is to have a minimum of 50 youth and adults in our group, demonstrating how much fun it is to be part of the Edina Basketball community. We hope you will join us for this fun event on Thursday, July 4, 2023. CLICK HERE to sign up. Additional details will be communicated towards the end of June, but you can count on this being a fun experience!

Cake Eater Tournament Apparel - SALE!
If you were hoping to get Cake Eater apparel, now is the time place an order. All items will be on sale until Sunday, June 15. After that, Cake Eater apparel won't be available until tourney time next season. That's a long time to wait!

Orders will be available for pick up within 24 hours of being received. The pickup location (in Edina) will be listed on your order confirmation. Please contact Kate Mismash at with any questions.
