Shakopee Girls Basketball Association (SGBA) has been organized to benefit the girls of our community by providing means for their athletic and social development through organized basketball. The goal is to recognize the importance of all individuals and to conduct our programs in a manner that provides the opportunity for the development of all participants. Our programs are organized to provide girls an opportunity to participate in a competitive level of basketball to prepare them for Varsity level play at Shakopee Senior High School.
Here are key dates for players interested in participating in the upcoming SGBA Programs. As we approach the season, there is plenty of activity underway! If you have any questions, feel free to contact Todd Bieniek (email@example.com) for In-House and Beth Cordes for Travel (firstname.lastname@example.org).
