Traveling Basketball

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 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.  

Player and team assignments posted Saturday, September 23, 2023.

The 2023-24 Travel Teams will be decided and results will be posted by tryout numbers below. In addition, player names have been added to each team roster. To view team rosters, please look at the team travel pages by grade.  

Travel practices will start as early as the week of October 23, 2022.  

The Travel Season Kickoff Meeting (attended by both parents and players) will be held on Monday, October 9 from 6:30 - 7:30 p.m. at McGuire Middle School in the Cafeteria. After the group parent/player meeting, you will have a quick meeting with your team's coach. 

We will be collecting 2 checks upon your arrival to the meeting (please bring a deposit check and uniform check for each player):

  • Check #1 - $250 for Volunteer Hours
  • Check #2 - $150 for Uniform Deposit 

Please bring checks made out to LSBBA. If you fulfill your volunteer hours and return your uniform, the checks will be shredded. If you do not fulfill your volunteer hours and/or do not return your uniform, checks will be cashed accordingly. 

If you have any questions about the traveling program, please contact Matt Bodden at Please allow 24 hours after team postings to email Matt with questions. Looking forward to a great travel season! 

Go Cougars!
