SEASON and PROGRAM INFORMATION


The City of Airdrie Minor Basketball Association (AMBA) Program Information 2024-2025

Welcome to the Airdrie Minor Basketball webpage, dedicated to keeping parents informed and engaged in the exciting world of community basketball in Airdrie! We understand the vital role parents play in fostering a love for the game and supporting their young athletes as they grow both on and off the court.

Our community programs are designed to not only develop fundamental basketball skills but also to instill values of teamwork, sportsmanship, and a healthy lifestyle. Through a combination of structured practices, friendly competitions, and a positive learning environment, we aim to create an enriching experience for every participant.

Here, you'll find valuable information about our programs, including schedules, registration details, and updates on events. We encourage you to explore the resources provided and actively participate in your child's basketball journey. Whether they're just starting or have been dribbling for years, Airdrie Minor Basketball is committed to creating a supportive community that celebrates the growth and achievements of each player.

Thank you for being an essential part of our basketball family. Together, let's make this season a slam dunk for our young athletes!

AMBA must work with various gyms to schedule practices and games.  Every attempt is made by AMBA to schedule the younger players at earlier times; however, we are not able to guarantee practice start and end times.  Players should be prepared to practice anywhere from 5:00pm - 10:00pm, Monday - Thursday.
