Present and Former NMBA Players Brace for Big Week of Competition

This is a big week to start the road to a big month for members of the Northside Minor Basketball Association and its alumni.

 Those participating in Basketball New Brunswick's Elite Development Program will work out twice at the junior and senior boys' and girls' levels in the Central Zone.

 Teams will be selected from the various formations for BNB's competition day which unfolds in Fredericton on April 27.

 The competition day will showcase 15 minute games with players from across the province who have been participating in EDP workouts last fall and this spring.

 Games will be five-on-five.

 A list of locations and time frames will be announced later this week.

 For the junior members of the EDP, there are 40 spots on the line for both genders to move on to participate in BNB's bantam elite camp in July.

 For the older players, BNB team tryouts for summer play begins in May.

 The under-17 and under-16 tryouts are May 4. Those bidding for under-15 spots, go May 11.

 The NMBA will keep you up to date with all the rosters affecting present and former Lions.
