Welcome to the Brookline Basketball Association (the "BBA") website. The BBA board was formed in 2015 to work alongside the Town of Brookline's Recreation Department to improve the experience of youth basketball in the town.


The two main Town-sponsored youth basketball programs are the Town Travel program, which competes against teams from throughout the Boston suburbs, and the Joel M. Noe Youth Recreation League, which consists of teams within Brookline only. Registration for both programs is administered by the Rec Department.

The Rec Department also offers Saturday clinics for boys and girls in grades K through 2 and also administers a recreational league at Brookline High School for students who are NOT members of the freshman, JV or varsity basketball teams.

This site will serve as a comprehensive information resource for players, parents and coaches regarding programs offered by the Town as well as other youth basketball playing and training opportunities available throughout the year.


The BBA is led by a group of volunteers with significant experience coaching youth basketball. The BBA is also supported by an Advisory Board including members of the basketball coaching staffs at Brookline High School.
