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.

Evaluations for boys and girls in 3rd – 8th grades will be held on Sunday, December 6th, at JamTown: 31 4th St, Oakland.
Boys and girls will be evaluated at the same time, separate courts:

3rd Grade –  10am – 10:45am
4th Grade – 11am – 12pm
5th Grade – 12:10pm – 1:10pm
6th Grade – 1:30pm – 2:30pm
7th Grade – 2:45pm – 3:45pm
8th Grade – 4pm – 4:45pm
Please note these important details about the try-outs:
- Advanced registration is required. ABSOLUTELY NO WALK IN’S FOR TRY-OUTS.
- Try-outs are closed to observers.
(We have found that players are more relaxed and focused without observers present.)
- Each child needs to bring their own ball.

More specifics about the PBBF teams:
- Highly competitive (playing at AAU skill level)
- 10-12 kids per team on average
- ‘B’ teams may be added in grades if we have enough players to develop & compete at this level.
- Playing time is earned through performance in practice and will not be equal among all players.
- Spring season runs March – May (12 weeks)
- Games are played in Lafayette, Walnut Creek and Concord.
- Fees for the league are $450 per player

New this year:
- Uniforms: a separate link will go out for new players to purchase the PBBF uniform or returning players to get bigger sizes in jerseys and/or shorts. Orders will be placed by parents and items shipped to you directly. PBBF will not be involved in the uniform ordering process.

- Practice: 2 times per week and will include 1) coach led-team practice and 1) professional training session.

- All practices for all teams will be held at JamTown. This will allow us provide a reliable facility that is ready for our teams and give them the full practice time all of our players deserve.

Makeup try-out: Mon, Dec 7th, 6:00 – 7:30pm
JamTown: 31 4th St, Oakland
We are aware that kids may have other commitments on our try-out day, but we encourage you to make the Sunday date if at all possible as your child will be evaluated more truly as they will be with their peers. The makeup tryout will be an open session with all grade levels participating at once.
There will be no other makeup day offered.

Check back on Monday, Nov 16th to register!
