The Great American Basketball League (GABL), a youth basketball organization founded in 1974 that serves over 4,500 boys and girls annually in the Greater Kansas City area.
As a program of the GABL Youth Sports Foundation, Inc. it provides youth in first grade through high school with an opportunity to play basketball in a competitive and learning environment. Since its inception, the league has been guided by its dedication to teaching skills, sportsmanship and fair play, and by its commitment to every participant to play in each game. The league considers its activities to be a service to the community and acknowledges that its success is dependent upon the donation of time and expertise by volunteers from the community.
The mission of the league is to provide year-round opportunities for youth of all skill levels to play basketball in a competitive and learning environment, as well as:
Promote fitness, health and skill development;
Build team and cooperative learning;
Teach character, sportsmanship and citizenship.
