National Team Program

BBA National Teams
History

 

 The first recorded BBA National Team to compete overseas was an Under-17 Men's team which participated in the 1989 Carifta Games.  In 1999, an Under-17 Men's team hosted a team from Turks and Caicos Islands. The first recorded Senior Men's Program was formed in 2002 after the BBA was invited to participate as a member of the Bermuda Island Games Association (BIGA) in the 2003 Natwest Island Games. Since 2009, the Senior Men's Program has also added the Caribbean Basketball Confederation (CBC) tournament to it's Calendar of Events, having participated 4 times.

 

Women's Basketball has ebbed and flowed from the 1980's to present. The BBA has always been able to secure Select teams to compete against visiting Women's College teams. However, the first recorded Senior Women's program was formed in 2004 after seeing the success of the Men's team. Unfortunately, the women's program has lacked the committment of the men's program, resulting in their participation in only 3 IG related events. The BBA hopes that it will be able to send a competitive Women's Team to the 2019 Island Games which will be held in Gibraltar.
