There is the possibility of midget basketball club teams being started in a number of Basketball New Brunswick associations in time for this year.
Traditionally, the midget level players for those in Grade 9 and 10 play at the interscholastic level, but it was felt there is a void for players who do not play at that level and don't have a lot of options if they don't make high school rosters. There is interest within Sackville, Moncton, Fredericton YCBC and Fredericton Northside Minor Basketball Association to play a shortened girls' season from January through March to at least establish a program. There is also interest in the Kennebecasis Valley and Woodstock. Some associations have already had tryouts or have existing midget teams, but the opportunity to be a bridge from mini to bantam and the next level is a possibility if those involved can ensure they have enough players to fill rosters.
