What We Do

NMBA will enter its seventh year of operation in 2014-15. The NMBA operated eight teams this past season under its umbrella including mini, bantam, midget and juvenile teams.

 The core of its operation, however, is the minor mini boys' and girls' and bantam boys' and girls' programs.

  Brad Janes is the president of the NMBA. Scott Williams is vice president, Natasha Bozek treasurer and Vicky Patterson is secretary. Board members are Phil Wilson, Carolyn Carter-Legacy, Shelley Janes and John Hickey.

 The NMBA also ensures its minutes and meeting notes - the board meets once a month all year - are open and transparent.
