ABA ANNOUNCES EXPANSION TO VANCOUVER, BC

Indianapolis, IN. The American Basketball Association (ABA) www.abalive.com today announced that it will have a team in Vancouver, BC starting with the 2014-15 season which begins in November. “This is long overdue,” stated Joe Newman, ABA CEO. “We have always considered Vancouver to be one of the best potential ABA cities since the Grizzlies left there several years ago. We have been waiting for just the right owner to help maximize the potential of this fabulous city – and in Dave Poon Tip, we have found just that person. We are genuinely excited to have Dave and the City of Vancouver as part of the ABA.”

The team will be owned by Victory Sports Camps, a not-for-profit organization based in Burnaby, BC. According to Mr. Poon Tip, “The team will give local college and university graduates an opportunity to compete at the next level on their path to pro basketball if that is their eventual goal. In speaking with
Lawrie Johns, the Director of Basketball BC, he agreed that there has been a need for this stepping stone for local players for many years.”

The Balloholics are currently a youth-based program providing classes from grades 2-9 year round and is a member of Steve Nash Youth Basketball and the AAU (www.balloholic.com). Established in 2006 and starting with a dozen students, VSC has grown to over 400 registrations in the past few years.

“The Balloholics will be expanding and revamping our entire youth program this fall to support the operation of the senior ABA team (www.aba.balloholic.com ),” added Poon Tip. “We are looking forward to the challenge and have started our journey to the ABA.”

The Vancouver Balloholics will be part of the new ABA Canada West, a division that is managed by Sal Rashidian, owner of the Calgary Crush. The goal is to add several additional teams in Western Canada. For more information, email info@balloholic.com  or visit www.aba.balloholic.com. Or www.abalive.com.

The American Basketball Association (ABA) www.abalive.com today announced that it has added a second team to Memphis, TN starting next season. “We felt that Memphis could certainly support two good ABA teams,” stated ABA CEO Joe Newman. “With the Memphis Bluff City Reign and the new Memphis Lions, it should create quite a rivalry and also provide more players with an opportunity to play professional basketball. And we are very pleased with this new ownership group too.”

The team will be owned by two sisters, DePaula Ross and Marcelina Glover. DePaula was born in Memphis and attended the University of Memphis, graduating with a Bachelor’s of Science in Business Administration Management. She is currently working on her doctorate degree at the University of Memphis in Instructional Design and Technology.

DePaula and Marcelina join a host of other women owners in the ABA, the US most-diversified professional sports league. “Our goal is the make the Memphis Lions one of the best teams in the ABA, on and off the court,” stated Ms. Ross. “We know what it takes to have a successful basketball team; we also know what it takes to become a serious and important part of the community – and we will work very hard to accomplish both.” For more information, email depaulaross@gmail.com or call 901 562 3230 or visit www.abalive.com.
