About Us

The Nepean Blue Devils Basketball Association (NBBA) is a not-for-profit sports organization which offers boys and girls aged 6 through 18, an opportunity to participate and enjoy the game of basketball. 

The NBBA was established in 2010 as a result of the amalgamation of the Barrhaven Girls Basketball Association (established in 1994), the Nepean Amateur Basketball Association (established in 1980) and the Nepean Bobcats Boys Basketball Associaton (established in 1996).  The NBBA operates with the assistance  of approximately 150 volunteers. Our season runs from October to May. During this time, Nepean Blue Devils teams compete in several tournaments, competitions and/or leagues.

Details on the individual programs can be found under Programs and the costs for each program under Registration.
