    The league prides itself on the “show up and play” model.  Teams travel to venues on various weekends and play two games in one day.  In this model, everything from gyms, referees and score table staff is provided.  Admission to the venues is free for all! Teams play on one weekend and then they go back and practice for a couple of weeks.  Games are spread out over the course of November to May.  The playoff pool is a bracket format like you would see in the NCAA.  This year end tournament, referred to as “May Madness” includes an all-star game for each division on the same day as the Championship game.  
    Teams involved are registered with the OBA and FIBA rules apply.
    The ABS works with corporate partners Wilson/RMP Athletics, Sheridan College, The Peel Board of Education, . Skills Academy, The Print Outfit, COURTZ Headware, and more.

    Along with On-Court action, the ABS has a website, Facebook page and a twitter account.  On these sites we give up to date game results, players of the week, pictures, videos and statistics regarding leading scorers in each division.  Details regarding schedules will be out in the coming weeks.
