The IBA offers three basketball programs: Little Knights, Instructional and Competitive. 


All Instructional programs are designed to help players learn basketball skills, sportsmanship and fun.


Little Knights (1st - 2nd Grade)
This program is for first and second grade students in the Irondale High School attendance area. The program is designed to introduce players to the game of basketball.

Cost: $95 per player


Instructional (3rd - 8th Grade)
The IBA Instructional program is designed to teach basketball skills and sportsmanship. The Instructional program is less intense, time consuming and competitive than the Competitive program. Instructional teams are primarily comprised of students from one's school attendance area.

Cost: $125 per player


Competitive (4th - 8th Grade) - MUST REGISTER PRIOR TO TRYOUTS!
The IBA Competitive program is more intense and competitive. It is designed to give the top players in our community an opportunity to compare their basketball skills with other communities’ top players. This includes eight or more weekend tournaments. Players are selected through tryouts.  If the player does not make a competitve team, they will be placed on an instructional team.

Cost: $175 per player 


Tournament & Coach Fees: This is an additional fee for those playing in the competitive league. This is approximately $400-500 paid at the start of the season for team tournament entry fees and paid coach fees (if applicable). Note that fees are higher this year due to many tournaments switching to a “no gate fee” model that allows free admission into many of the tournaments.


Please note there is a family maximum of $350 per family.
In order to receive the discount, multiple players MUST be added on the review page in the same registration.  This is for registration fees only. Additional competitive fees are paid in full.


This registration will allow you to sign consents, the COVID-19 waiver, the Player & Parent Code of Conducts, provide contact and emergency information and submit payment.  Please read though each page carefully to ensure all information is provided accurately.

Competitive Team Tournament Duties:
The Irondale Great Shoot Out Tournament is January 15-16, 2022 and is well attended by teams in the area.  Both the boys and girls tournament will require the help of the competitive IBA players and families to continue to provide a quality tournament.  You will be required to work one time slot with your team.
