IN THE COMMUNITY

IGNITE BASKETBALL LEAGUE (IBA)

IBA (formally known as Midnight Basketball Association) is a free community and school-based outreach program that offers a safe, constructive alternative for area youth in grades 6, 7 and  8. The goal is to strengthen participants’ character self-esteem and discipline so they are better equipped and prepared for the challenges of their teen years and beyond. This youth basketball program targets the population within the central urban neighborhood of Spokane’s School District No. 81. 

While basketball is the foundation of this league, the motivational workshops and recreational activity are also crucial elements. IBA has a need for volunteer coaches. This is a great way to spend a few hours a week making a difference in kids’ lives while having fun. If you would like to coach a team, we’d love to have you! Email Chad Smith for more details.
