This year, the Morinville Youth Basketball Association has grown to 14 teams, up from just 10 last season, and have 173 athletes repping the Sabretooths uniforms.
Our 2019/20 teams include:
U11 Boys (x2)
U15 Girls (x2)
U18 Boys (x2)
U18 Girls (x2)
With the growth of teams, we welcome back 10 returning head coaches from last season and 4 coaches stepping either back into the role, moving from an assistant coach role to a head coach role or are just beginning their first season as a coach. We also welcome back many returning Sabretooths athletes and many new athletes to our association.
12 of these teams will begin league play within the Edmonton Youth Basketball Association in 2 weeks, with round 1 beginning on the weekend September 28th. Practices for all 14 teams begin the week of September 16th at Ecole Notre Dame, G.H. Primeau School and at the Morinville Leisure Centre.
Results for all games will be posted on the EYBA Website and through their team pages. More detailed results, player interviews, game photos and game videos may be posted on MYBA social media sites, including Facebook and Instagram (Morinville Youth Basketball).
Note: Not every team will have photographs or video each week and some teams may have more than others due to location played. Please keep this in mind. We will do our best to photograph all teams throughout the season.
