The Piedmont Basketball Foundation (PBBF) works to promote the continued development of young players as it relates to the fundamentals of basketball, sportsmanship, and athletic competition.
The PBBF teams compete in highly competitive leagues that offer players with a strong interest in basketball an opportunity to develop their fundamental skills, and to learn team play along with the essential elements of offensive / defensive strategy by competing in challenging leagues and tournaments around the Bay Area. PBBF is dedicated to providing meaningful opportunities for young players that will help them enhance their mental, physical, social, and cultural development, while engaging at a high level of competition.
Try-outs for boys and girls in 3rd – 8th grades will be held on Sunday, December 14th, location and times will be determined ASAP. Boys and girls will have try-outs at the same time, on separate courts. Please check this site often for time/location updates.
Please note these important details about the try-outs:
- Advanced registration is required. ABSOLUTELY NO WALK IN’S FOR TRY-OUTS.
