2023 EOY Community Awards

How awesome was the 2023 End-of-Year Celebration Week?! This year, we celebrated onsite on competition days so nobody missed out. It was a scorcher of a week, but our legendary BBQ volunteers kept the snags coming.

2023 Community Awards

At the end of each year, we take the opportunity to reflect on all the people who volunteer their time to make SBA a great community. Their positivity and passion for basketball is the heart of the Tigers. The winners of the 2023 Community Awards were announced on during the EOY Celebration Week. It was a tough job for the independent panel with so many worthy nominees backed up by detailed nominations. Congratulations to the winners and all of the nominees!
