Canceled. The 2020 Spirit of the North Youth Basketball Tournament scheduled for November 21-22 is canceled. We were not able to secure adequate gym locations to hold a tournament. We are sorry about this development. We plan on having our 28th (not quite annual now ) tournament in November 2021. Let us hope by then things are back to mostly normal.

​Salvation Army RBA and DAYBA Announce Merger

Two youth basketball programs, Salvation Army RBA and DAYBA celebrate building skills. The two groups, the former, a program of the Salvation Army and the latter, formed by parents in the early 1990s once competed for some of the same kids explained their directors, Kris Mallett and Erik Lofald. RBA once was for grades 1-4 at the same time that DAYBA served grades 3-6. During the past seven years, as Mallett and Lofald took leadership roles and worked together, the RBA has served kindergarten through fourth grade, and DAYBA has served grades 5-8. On March 11, 2019 they announced the two programs will merge under Mallett's direction.
