Albany Boys Basketball Association (ABBA) and Albany Girls Basketball Association (AGBA) today announced the merger of the two organizations. The new organization will be named Albany Youth Basketball Association (AYBA).

After nearly a year long exploration process, both associations determined that they can be more effective serving the area youth by working together as one association. The official process/paperwork of merging the associations is complete and the new combined board of directors is working to combine and streamline operations for the upcoming season. Not only will the merger streamline operations, it will also provide a greater continuum of services, create operation efficiencies, and provide long-term sustainability for the association.
