Samen met de Basketball Academy Amsterdam vormen de twee verenigingen een nieuw bolwerk.
Op die manier staan we nog sterker in het opleiden van ambitieuze basketballers. In het seizoen 2021-2022 wordt begonnen met gezamenlijke teams in de Dutch Talent League (Eredivisie U22), de Eredivisie U18 en Tweede Divisie U18. Voor deze twee eredivisie teams komt een nieuwe overkoepelende vereniging. 
Komende vrijdag beginnen we met een kick-off met de gezamenlijke U18- en U22-teams. We trainen van 18:30 tot 20:00 uur in de Goudsmithal.
Door middel van talentlicenties voor deze en andere teams van beide clubs en extra trainingen met hogere teams kunnen we onze spelers de extra uitdaging aanbieden en voldoen aan de steeds strengere kwaliteitseisen van de NBB voor de eredivisieteams.
Na uitvoerig overleg tussen de technisch betrokkenen van Harlemlakers, MBCA & Basketball Academy Amsterdam zien wij deze samenwerking als de perfect passende puzzel om de spelers zo optimaal mogelijk te bedienen zonder de wensen en belangen van de verschillende verenigingen uit het oog te verliezen.
De aankomende periode zullen de betreffende besturen met elkaar in gesprek gaan om de samenwerking zo vorm te geven dat het niet alleen de topsport(lijn) ondersteunt, maar dat de vereniging op meerdere gebieden met elkaar kunnen samenwerken. Hierbij kan gedacht worden aan opleidingen voor coaches, scheidsrechters en elkaar helpen & sterker maken (bijvoorbeeld teams waar beide clubs te weinig spelers hebben kunnen samen competitie spelen of spelers van de wachtlijst naar elkaar doorverwijzen).
Wij denken dat dit de beste oplossing is voor beide verenigingen en met name voor de spelers.

The Technical Committee (TC) has been working hard on the new teams for the 2021-2022 season. Like every year it has been a big puzzle to complete the teams, this year even more complicated because we couldn't see all players in the Goudsmithal, but spread among different locations in Amstelveen.
Finding trainers for every team is also a challenge every year. For most teams we managed but there are still some open spots.... Are you interested in training or coaching a team?

The draft for the teams is made after consulting trainers, age-coordinators and sometimes even the players themselves. We try to take everyones wishes into consideration, but unfortunately they do not always fit completely. For some teams there will still be try-outs in June and this may impact other teams in the category.

The TC emphasizes that this draft is a first CONCEPT. New members may have an impact on the next draft. A new version will be available at the end of June.
If you have questions about this CONCEPT draft, please contact your age-coordinator

Dear (parents of) Basketball players,

Unfortunately 2020 has been heavily influenced by the COVID-19 virus and the board has had to take several measures in order to follow regulation. Because of these necessary measures the contribution has just now been mailed to you.

This year we continued to train regularly in the holiday to be able to make a good start with the 20/21 season. 
Unfortunately, COVID-19 has once again shut down the competition. 
We assume, and the NBB has confirmed up and till today, that the competition will still be fully played, albeit ending at a later date in 2021. 
The teams have already played 4 or 5 games and MBCA will continue to facilitate the training as much as possible, also for 18 years and older. 
Financially this means for MBCA that about 60% of the seasonal costs have been incurred. As s the intention is to play the remainder of the competition, MBCA will have all costs for the season and some extra for the protocol that has and will be taken into account.
Much to our regret, all subsidies offered are not applicable to MBCA, however we are still seeking compensation from the municipality, AmstelveenSport and the NBB.

Because we understand that the members might also suffer the consequences of COVID-19, we offer everyone the opportunity to pay the contribution in 4 quarters. MBCA requests to state the invoice number in the description field of the banktransfer. The dates for these quarterly (25%)) payments are: 1st before December 20th, 2nd before Februari 20th, 3rd before April 20th and the 4th before June 20th. 
We like to thank those members that already have paid their dues for the 20/21 season. It has been and is of vital meaning to MBCA.

If you have any question regarding the contribution, please email at: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
Stay safe and keep yourself in shape with basketball, looking forward to see you again watching the games together,

Wybrand Oosterbaan
Treasurer 

What do I see on my contribution statement 2020-2021?

You will find two or more lines on your contribution statement. 
MBCA wants to be transparent by showing you what you pay for. 
This could be playing in a (higher) competition, training more often, resulting in higher costs for MBCA resulting in a higher contribution for yourself.
MBCA wants anyone to experience Basketball according to his/her ambition level, resulting in a contribution geared towards use.

Items you might see:
"Verenigingscontributie": Basic contribution for all members, for which one (recreational) training per week is included
"Basketball Basketballweek xxxxxx": If you participate in teams playing (semi-)annual competition.

Het bestuur is verheugd te kunnen melden dat we een nieuwe voorzitter hebben gevonden!

Bij deze willen wij nogmaals Rinco van der Baan bedanken voor zijn jarenlange inzet voor MBCA als voorzitter en we zijn blij dat Rinco actief bij MBCA betrokken wil blijven!
