The CBA In-House Basketball Program provides organized basketball opportunities for Boys & Girls Grades 2-8.
In-House Basketball is less competitive with a smaller level of time commitment than Traveling Basketball.
Our In-House program is designed to offer a fun environment for 2nd through 8th grade boys & girls to play basketball. The purpose of the program is to advance the players’ basketball skills and team play. Boys and girls teams play separately and are organized in three age divisions:
Boys: 2nd-3rd graders, 4th-5th graders, 6th-7th-8th graders.
Girls: 2nd-3rd graders, 4th-5th-6th graders, 7th-8th graders
Teams are formed in October consisting of 8-10 players. Players are organized by height, geographical location/school affiliation, and player skill level. Due to the numbers of players in the program, buddy requests are not accepted.
Coaches are expected to strive for equal playing time in all in-house programs as much as possible. The season consists of one practice and one game per week except during holidays and during CBA tournament weekends when gyms are not available.

This award is given annually during the In-House Celebration to one girl and one boy in grades 4-8 participating in the CBA In-House program. It honors the memory of long-time In-House Coordinator, Jon Nystrom, who passed away from cancer in 2015. Players will be nominated in writing by coaches. The award is based on the regular season, practice and games. The winners will be chosen by a committee made up of the In-House Director, In-House Coordinator and the CBA Executive Board.
Criteria: The player will exhibit an extraordinary level of sportsmanship. This means: in practice - listening intently and always doing as the coach asks, helping the coach with set up/pick up, helping teammates with skills, helping others to improve by sharing the ball. In games - following the coaches' instructions, being respectful to referees, always hustling back on defense, treating opposing players with courtesy, helping others up off the floor, being humble in victory and gracious in defeat. The player maintains a positive attitude no matter the situation and looks to make the game fun and enjoyable for all those around him/her. It is not expected that every team will have a nomination. Only truly exceptional players should be considered.
