Boys and Girls Travel Basketball

Welcome to P.L.A.Y. Travel Basketball!

The P.L.A.Y Travel Basketall Program is part of the Minnesota Youth Athletic Services (MYAS). 

The traveling basketball program opportunity is available to 3rd-8th grade players.  As these players prepare for varsity level play, we are planning to give them the opportunity to play against surrounding communities.  Players will tryout and then if selected for a team be placed on a team's roster (approximately 10 players per team).  Board members and selected head coaches work together to determine the final team rosters.  Each team position is filled on its roster and teams competing at the same level are evenly balanced between the teams i.e. two A or two B teams.  

Travel registration fees all include a tryout fee. If a player does not make a travel team all fees except the tryout fee will be applied to In-House registration and the difference refunded automatically. If they do not wish to play on an In-House team the registration fee will be refunded if requested in writing (email within 3 days of team announcement), then allow roughly 5 business days for processing the refund.

KEY NOTES : All TRAVEL players must sign up for the grade they are currently in.

Travel Basketball is for 3rd-8th grade players that want to practice two nights a week and play in tournaments on the weekends. Teams  will registered for between 4-9 weekend tournaments during the summer depending on age. These teams will play in neighboring communities as well as possible travel further for some tournaments. These teams have limited numbers and are determined through a tryout of skills. The number of teams at each age level will depend on tryouts. To play travel basketball is a big commitment and to understand the competition level is higher and players and families need to be prepared to commit to basketball as the in season sport.
