Sample registration

 “Coach we would like to sign up our 7th grade team from N. Muskegon for 3 dates, June 27, July 11 and Aug 8.  The 630 PM time slot.  I will send in $95 X 3 to secure those spots.  Thank you!”

The IBL was founded in 2009 and provides the best skills and competitive training for young players hoping to make their school teams. We combine specific skill drills and structured scrimmaging to help our players improve.  Since 2009, many of the BEST PLAYERS in West Michigan have been IBL trained.

The SIBL is slightly different in that we will only take FULL TEAMS registering. 

Significant benefit:  Basics Mindset Training is included.
