Here is a list of frequently asked questions we get at the MBA. Still can’t find the information you need? Feel free to contact us!
Q: Can kids in Pre-K play?
A: Yes! If the parents stay and help out, that is fine. Often times children that young have a shorter attention span or are too little so we will need extra help making sure everyone is taken care of.
Q: Can you play even though you can’t afford the registration?
A: Yes, you would have to write a letter to the board using the ‘contact’ section on the website and they will look into sponsoring you.
Q: What is the typical class size in the K-1st league?
A: Usually somewhere between 25 and 30 kids.
Q: What is the typical team size in house league?
A: Usually around 13, depending on the amount of coaches we have volunteering.
Q: How many gyms do you use for house league games and practices?
A: Two, Jefferson and Madison.
Q: How long has the ‘Biddy Basketball’/MBA been around?
A: We’ve had children’s organized basketball since 1968!
Q: Why do you play with only 4 people on the court for house league?
A: The gyms are small and we want everyone on the floor to get more opportunities to touch the ball and develop their skills.
Q: Why can’t travel team players also play in house league?
A: Travel team is more competitive and they play at 10 foot baskets, whereas house league plays at 8 or 9 foot baskets. House league gives the children who aren’t playing in the travel league a chance to play.
Q: Why do house league players use 8 or 9 foot baskets?
A: It is important for the players to develop their shooting form properly. As children grow, then we raise the height. We don’t want the kids forcing a shot with incorrect form.
