Brampton Minor Basketball Association
Since 1979, The Brampton Minor Basketball Association (BMBA) has been dedicated to teaching youths ages 7-18 to play and enjoy the game of basketball. From grass-roots development to our elite development representative teams, our goal is to continually establish a program that will provide an atmosphere to challenge all participants, allowing them to develop at their own pace. Each year we place close to 1,300 participants in our winter/summer house and rep team leagues. BMBA emphasizes fair play, respect and community service. Over the years we have seen the growth and enjoyment of this wonderful sport soar in our community.

Brampton Warrior Midget Girls
were Too Legit to Quit
Brampton - The under 15 Brampton Warrior Girls became the Ontario Basketball Provincials Division 3 Champions during their provincial tournament on May 1-3 in Scarborough, Ontario.
The Warriors were seeded last place of the 12 teams in the division; after a hard season against some of the top teams in Ontario, but came out to provincials with a new attitude: These girls were too legit to quit.
After losing their first game to the number 1 ranked Toronto Triple Threat by only 5 points, the girls rallied back and won their next 5 games in a row, including a comeback from a 14-point deficit in the quarter-finals, and an exciting 2-point win in the semi-finals. In the gold medal game, point guard Jennifer Bergie controlled the pace with guards Angela Rizzi and Genevieve Onyeka contributing 20 and 11 points respectively, and forwards Raquel Vassel and Aaliyah Chamberlain dominating the boards. A complete team effort led to a 50-39 win against the London 86's, who were ranked 2nd in the division. The season started out rough, but they finished off tough to win the 2009 Ontario Championship. Congratulations to all the girls and supportive parents for their hard work and success.
