HISTORY OF THE BBA
The B.B.A. league was formed in the summer of 1994 in the back yard of Steve Burgo's South Dartmouth home. Upon deciding to build a basketball court, complete with lights, his original intent was to provide a safe environment for his sons and their friends to play ball. The court's popularity spread quickly and soon a basketball league was born. Seventy-two participants formed eight teams of nine players each, complete with officials and formal rules. The league quickly expanded and out grew it's backyard beginnings. We moved the BBA to a new home which is known as "The Complex" and is located at 101 Slocum Road, in North Dartmouth, Ma. The Complex is a regional facility and serves the entire South coast. The league attracts players from surrounding communities such as New Bedford, Dartmouth, Fairhaven, Wareham, Freetown, Rhode Island and as far away as Connecticut. The only requirements for joining the league are a desire to play ball and respect for the league, officials, other players and the neighbors. Games are held Monday through Thursday evenings, June thru the first week of August with trophies presented at the end of the season. An entry fee of $125.00 per player (youth division) is charged to offset expenses such as referee & scorer fees, electricity, shirts, trophies, supplies, repairs, maintenance and facility improvements.
