Traveling Basketball

Traveling Registration is OPEN

Welcome to the 2017 season of Traveling Basketball.  We have been hard at work preparing for this season and we are pleased to open registrations.

The grade levels will have 2 tryouts again this year and the tryouts will be as follows:

  • Third and Fourth Grade       Sunday, Sept. 24 from 8:00am-9:30am and Monday, Sept. 25 from 6:00pm-7:30pm
  • Fifth Grade       Sunday, Sept. 24 from 9:30am-11:00am and Monday, Sept. 25 from 7:30pm-9:00pm
  • Sixth Grade     Sunday, Sept. 24 from 11:00am-12:30pm and Thursday, Sept. 28 from 7:30pm-9:00pm
  • Seventh Grade     Sunday, Sept. 24 from 12:30pm-2:00pm and Thursday, Sept. 28 from 6:00pm-7:30pm
  • Eighth Grade     Sunday, Sept. 24 from 2:00pm-3:30pm and Tuesday, Sept. 26 from 6:00pm-7:30pm

Thanks for all of the feedback on conflicts with football and baseball, I believe this schedule avoids those conflicts.  Remember you should drop your son off at least 15 minutes before the start of your son's tryouts for check-in and to get their Pinnie #.  Please write down the Pinnie # as it will be used to determine which team your son has made.  I plan to have final rosters posted Friday, Sept. 29, after 5:00pm.  If your third through sixth grade son does not make a Traveling team, we will register your son for In-house and refund the difference.  For 7th or 8th grade kids who don't make a Traveling team, we will refund the entire amount.  As always if you have any questions, please reach out to Ben Nielsen.

Welcome to Traveling Basketball

The Lakeville South Boys Basketball Association (LSBBA) exists to provide an opportunity for boys to compete in an environment that emphasizes fundamental basketball skills, teamwork, good sportsmanship, and the development of a healthy positive attitude. Winning, although important, is secondary to learning the game and having fun.

The LSBBA offers a Traveling and In-House program.  Our Traveling program is for the kids who are a little more advanced in their current basketball knowledge and are looking to be challenged to continue to develop their skills.  Travel teams compete in 8-9 tournaments that have been selected and scheduled in advance by the LSBBA. Tournaments are held on weekends and games are played on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Travel coaches may schedule at most three additional tournaments at the team’s expense during the season. This ensures that all participants in the program will participate in approximately the same number of tournaments and also allows for all participants and their families to have scheduled “weekends off” during the season. 

All participants in the program are required to try out in order to make a team and tryouts usually occur near the end of September.  Provided enough players tryout, the LSBBA will setup 3 teams for each grade level as a standard.  If more than 37 kids tryout for the 7th or 8th grade then a fourth team will be added at those two grade levels only.  Team sizes are normally 8 players on the A teams, and 10 players each on the B and C teams. 

My name is Ben Nielsen, and I am the Traveling VP for the LSBBA, any questions about anything here can be directed to me.
