Gretna Basketball Association

Fundamental League

The Gretna Basketball Association strives to provide opportunities for personal growth and development of youth athletes while promoting positive influences, confidence and the desire to excel on and off the court. The GBA is dedicated to educate and motivate each participant while encouraging teamwork, sportsmanship and fun through the spirit of basketball competition.

The GBA Fundamental League is for 1st - 6th Grade Gretna Public Schools students, and other children is these grades who live within the Gretna School District. There are two sessions available. Our fall session begins in October and ends in December. Our winter session begins in January and ends in February.

Winter 2021 Session Update (12/14/20)

Registration for our Winter 2021 Fundamental session will open December 15th (closing January 8th).  The session is scheduled to take place January 23rd through February 27th, but remains subject to change per guidance from Gretna Public Schools.  We are working through our safety plan for the session, and expect the league to look different than in past years.  Examples of changes include, but may not be limited to: limitation on spectators (likely only 1-2 per player), time between games to empty the gym and sanitize equipment, shorter sessions for the 3rd-6th grade teams, no end of season tournament for 3rd-6th graders, potential for maximum registration limits.  Our goal is for as many of our youth to have a basketball season and we are working to ensure that it can be done safely for the players, spectators, workers, and schools.  

Registration will take place in two steps, similar to registering with a tryout format.  There are no tryouts for Fundamental league, but utilizing this registration process allows everyone to register to provide their intent to play and for us to better understand numbers and gym space needs.  At the close of the Registration period in early January, and after approval from the schools to proceed with our league, we will form the teams and send out a Team Acceptance email, which will start step two of the registration, in which you will be required to accept your spot and pay the registration fee.

All players registered will be placed on a team, unless restrictions are placed on the use of gyms that require us to limit the number of teams or size of a team (which could occur after registration is in process or closed).  In that situation, teams will be formed in order of registration from earliest to latest.  We hope to be able to provide a team for everyone and will provide updates as we have them.
