Formerly the 10K shot club, BBA is excited to roll out a brand new “Summer Skills” program. Like the 10K shot format, this program is designed to reward players who invest in their continued development throughout the summer. “Summer Skills” is centered around the time players spend building up both their skills on the court with camps, leagues and drills but also encourages them to earn points by developing their character through community service and their bodies through age appropriate weight training and cardio workouts.


Key Dates

Due to the late end to our school year, we’re going to extend the Summer Skills program a little longer this year.

  • Registration - May 28th - June 15th

  • Program Runs - June 1st - Sept 14th


Cost Per Player

Grade level as of 2019-2020 School Year


  • $ 30 for 2nd - 8th Grade*


* - The Summer Skills registration fee includes access to all BBA open gym times scheduled throughout the summer.


Recognition Levels

All players who reach 5K or higher will be recognized at halftime of the boys or girls varsity game and receive the following rewards based on the level of points they reach.


  • 5K Points - T-Shirt


  • 10K Points - Sweatshirt


  • 15K Points - Sweatshirt & Trophy


How do the points work?


To keep it simple, points are minutes. Minutes spent playing basketball, attending camps or doing other activities that build us up as stronger players. Some activities are worth bonus points, such as the Bear Maker camps, weight training and community service. We’ve provided a list of point scoring opportunities below as well as goals for our 5th-8th grade players.
