MWBA - Maritime Womens Basketball Association

News

The Maritime Women’s Basketball Association is ready to bounce into action in the spring of 2022.

It’s definitely exciting news for women looking to improve their game as players, continue playing after university, collegiate or professional careers are over or getting back into a competitive environment.

As many as six teams have expressed interest to begin the inaugural season, beginning in early May of 2022.

Nova Scotia and New Brunswick would have three teams each, but more teams could be added before the MWBA announces its official stable late in 2021.

Nova Scotia boasts the Halifax Thunder, Halifax Sirens and Windsor Edge. New Brunswick entrants at Fredericton Freeze, Port City Fog of Saint John and 506 Elite of Moncton.

The MWBA is an amateur league for players 19 and over, but will feature a professional approach in its on-court product, game presentation and staffing.

Players are expected to be present day USPORTS, Canadian Collegiate Athletic Association, or professionals playing overseas, who are home for the off-season. Plenty of former players will also return to the competitive fray for the 10 to 14-game regular season and championship weekend of tournament format playoffs.

Roster announcements and configurations along with coaching staffs will be announced by teams on this website.
