PRESS RELEASE
:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

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.

The date of the season opening game is TBD – an update will go out soon.

CEO and Commissioner, Virtual Basketball Association

The VBA Partners with SLCS “Sports Expo” !

27 May

Sunday, May 22, 2011

The SLCS Cheerleaders hosted their 2nd Annual Sports Expo from 12pm-9pm SLT at their sim, Cheertopia.  SLCS invited representatives from all SL sports to participate.  Their sim was decorated with sports themed booths.  Turned out to be a great day of exploring, trash-talking, dancing and networking.  We wish anyone involved in an SL sport well and thank the SLCS for allowing the VBA to participate.

The VBA had a booth in addition to 7 individual VBA team booths.  GO HARD.. OR GO HOME!

Here are some photographs that highlight the events that day.
