IBA's mission is to provide the Irondale community with the opportunity for boys and girls to learn the game of basketball, develop fundamental basketball skills, teamwork, good sportsmanship and most importantly to have some FUN!
The Irondale Basketball Association is a member of Trusted Coaches which is an online youth coach's training/educational program. Coaches will receive first-aid training, concussion instruction, a nationwide criminal background check and be certified in the Positive Coaching Alliance Double-Goal Coach® character education course. Upon completion, coaches are issued a Trusted Coach Membership Card and placed on the Trusted Coaches National Registry.
We had a great turn out last weekend at tryouts. All the players gave it their all during their evaluations and it is great to see the program growing each year. We appreciate the help of all the board members, evaluators and players to help it run smoothly.
Our teams change year to year with new registrants coming in to the program, advancements in ability due to hard work in the off season, players leaving the program, etc. You may not be at the same level you were last year, you may not be on the team you hoped for, or may not even be placed on a competitive team at all. The evaluators give us an honest opinion of where they think each player will have the best opportunity for personal growth and basketball development.
We appreciate everyone’s cooperation and look forward to a positive basketball season ahead!
