U18 Notes Fall Season:

U18 Programs are broken into 2 Fall and Winter Seasons as many players join High school programs for Winter.

Team Formation:

Teams are created based on the skill level of the player, using evaluation information.  The AMBA team formation committee has the best interests of the individual player and teams as a whole when placing players.  We will not accept requests to play on a specific team as each player is placed where they will have the most opportunity to learn and grow, while seeing as much court time as possible. 

The intention is to place teams of similar skill level together to create a fun and competitive season.  It’s important that players and parents do not focus on the division level they are placed at.


  • Played in Calgary within the CMBA program.  These games are scheduled by the CMBA (and not by the AMBA) and can be in ANY quadrant of the city.   
  • Go to Season and Program Information page for important CMBA game dates. 


  • AMBA attempts to schedule practices within Airdrie, however, based on gym availability, this is not always be feasible (Crossfield and Balzac are the out of town locations also used for practices). 
  • Practice days are determined by coach and school availability and will change from season to season. 
  • Once practice days are determined, we attempt to keep practice nights consistent for each team from week to week.  However, due to varying gym availabilities, there are some weeks where times and locations may differ, so it’s important to check the weekly practice schedule each week.
