Yale Basketball Association

The mission of the Yale Basketball Association is to provide alumni/ae and friends of Yale Basketball with up-to-date information about the Men’s and Women’s basketball programs, to support our student athletes, and to help sustain the proud and storied tradition of Basketball at Yale. In addition to raising money to support Yale basketball, which has become increasingly more important in these trying economic times, the Association enhances the experience of current Yale players and establishes a strong connection between Yale Basketball and the greater Yale community through such initiatives as career networking and job placement, and special events (including receptions, golf outings, and alumni/ae games).

The Yale Athletics Department encourages all those affiliated with Yale Basketball to become members of The Yale Basketball Association. You will enjoy the benefits of this great community, while helping Yale Basketball to continue its tradition of excellence.
