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 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.
