The SPBA Fall Session is September 5 – November 22nd. Sign up today!

Pre-registration for existing Summer Session SPBA students is Monday, July 24 – Sunday, July 30th. We are doing our pre-registration early this session so it doesn’t coincide with the birth of Coach Shannon’s baby and the start of school.

New Students of all levels looking to join for the fall session can register now, and will be notified of placements either July 31st-August 6th or more likely late August after Shannon welcomes the arrival of her new baby boy to her family!  We thank you for your patience and look forward to you joining us!


This year, the SPBA will again be hosting the largest junior tournament in the Midwest region for players across the country to earn important points towards qualifying for the Junior Nationals. With 524 players it is our biggest tournament yet!
