Virtual Basketball Association
June 9, 2011
The Virtual Basketball Association (VBA) has been involved in a rigorous training camp over the past two weeks.  The VBA applauds the eleven teams in the league currently participating in the 2011 Inaugural VBA Basketball Season.  Teams have played a variety of 2:2 and 5:5 scrimmage games and have honed their skills.  We have pushed our scripted court to its limit and realize that modifications are necessary.  With that being said, the VBA has decided to extend training camp an additional two weeks to end on Thursday, June 23, 2011. 

The VBA is taking this opportunity to recruit additional players.  Anyone interested in participating in the 2011 VBA Basketball Season, please visit the VBA Recruiting Center prior to June 23, 2011. http://slurl.com/secondlife/Alpha%20Cold/128/128/22.
