BBL giving away scholarships

The Bedford Basketball League is offering up to three scholarships for high school seniors looking to pursue college or vocational careers.

Candidates should demonstrate strong character traits consistent with the mission of the Bedford Basketball League (BBL). Scholarships are offered for full time study at any accredited post-secondary institution of the student’s choice. Children of current BBL Board Members are ineligible for this award.

The BBL mission statement is: “The Bedford Basketball League encourages a fun, safe learning environment for players of all abilities and promotes development of their athletic skills, character, sportsmanship and teamwork through participation in both recreational and competitive basketball with the goal of enhancing life skills both on and off the court.”

Applications for Bedford residents who played two years or more in the BBL are due by May 3.
