The Newburyport Boys Basketball Association (NBBA) offers the opportunity for all boys living in Newburyport or attending schools in the city to exercise, develop basketball skills, and play structured, competitive basketball games.




The NBBA offers school-aged boys the change to play in the following leagues: 


  • Cape Ann League (travel), for grades 4–8
  • 5th/6th and 7th/8th Grade In-Town Leagues
  • Development League (D League) for grades 3 and 4 
  • Rookie League for boys and girls in grades 1 and 2
  • High School Rec League


The focus in the travel programs is on developing skilled, competitve players who will play against teams from neighboring towns in the Cape Ann League. 

For the in-town leagues, players of all skills levels participate in an equal-playing time environment that features balanced team rosters and fun, competitve games against friends and classmates. 

The D League gives third and fourth graders the chance to play in a organized league format while learning and honing basic skills and team concepts. 

The Rookie League is designed to introduce the basics of the game to our youngest players through skill instruction and fun basketball games and contest. 

The Rec League provides an opportunity for all high school players to continue playing the game in a structured setting but without coaches or practices.

Registration for the Winter High School Rec League will open in December, after the high school rosters have been set.


Thanks to all of our sponsors for supporting youth basketball here in Newburyport!
