Traveling Basketball

2020-2021 Parent Meeting

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.  Provided enough players tryout, the LSBBA will setup 3 teams for each grade level as a standard.  Team roster sizes are normally 8 -10 players.  

COVID-19 Precautions

Please take the time to review the LSBBA's COVID-19 Preparedness Plan located on the COVID tab of the website.  

In compliance to the preparedness plan and to keep the boys safe and back on the court, please follow the following precautions:  

  1. Keep your son home if he is sick, has a fever, or any other symptoms of COVID-19.
  2. Keep you son home if he is exposed to anyone testing positive for COVID-19.
  3. Please use the Sports Engine App for attendance for all practices and tournaments.  
  4. All players must bring their own water bottles full to practices.  Water fountains will be turned off.  Refill stations will be available.  
  5. All players must provide their own basketballs for practice.  
  6. No parents allowed into the practice building.  Coaches and team only. 

If you have any questions or concerns, or your son is experiencing symptoms or tests positive for COVID-19, please email us at:
