WMBA Community 3x3 League Spring 2021 (Ages 7-18)
The WMBA is moving forward with Spring registration, based on the March 5 announcement to move to Phase 3 of the Canada Basketball Return to Play.
We will be offering a 10-week program running from mid-April through June.
Our spring program will consist of 3 weeks of indoor skills training (teams of 10 with coaches) and transition to outdoor 3x3 competition in May.
The Competition season will consist of 12 regular-season games plus Divisional and City championships.
Participants will register online (www.wmba.ca) based on their closest community centre. Convenors will form teams of 10 and recruit volunteer coaches. Participants will be notified via email by the convenor/coach once they have been assigned to a team.
The program fee will be $165 per participant, which will include:
March 10th, 2021 - Registration opens
March 31st, 2021 - Registration closes
April 1 - April 12 - Administration, building teams, assigning teams

The WMBA Foundation has built, in partnership with the community centres, a high quality outdoor court in each of our six league areas.
What is 3x3?
What used to be a simple half-court game of pick-up has now become an officially recognized sport. This summer, the International Olympic Committee announced the inclusion of 3X3 basketball as an official event in the 2021 Olympics to be held in Tokyo.
