Bemidji Travel Basketball

The Bemidji Youth Basketball traveling teams are an opportunity for more advanced players in grades 3-8 to travel to tournaments for an increased level of competition.  Practices still emphasize fundamentals but also more advanced skills and concepts to develop the player and team to be prepared for a higher level of competition.

Player Selection

Players/parents will need to complete a BYBA  Traveling Team registration form if they want to be considered for selection on a BYBA traveling team.  Consideration will only be given to players participating in the Community Education program for grades 3-5 or in Middle School basketball for grades 6 -8. 

 

Traveling A teams at each grade level will not exceed a maximum of 10 players.  Traveling B teams will be considered for 3rd-6th grades if the number of registrants permits and there is an available coach.  The 6th, 7th and 8th grade teams will be split into A (no more than 10 players) and B (no more than 12 players) teams based on evaluations at the fall tryout.   The number of players on each team will be determined by the coaches based on the number of registrants and approved by the Competition Committee or board.  If a coach can’t be obtained for a certain grade level/gender group there will be no traveling team.

BYBA will provide Team Jersey and Shorts which must be returned at season end.  The Association furnishes uniforms for games, basketballs, and other equipment.  Parents must furnish all transportation, motel rooms, and cover other expense for out of town tournaments.  Players and parents should make a serious commitment to the Travel program and their teams to get the most out of this program.

Practices

Grades 3-5 traveling teams will practice starting in January.   Teams will  practice 2 days per week for up to 2 hours per practice.  Optional additional practice times may be made available and will be communicated by the head coach.

Grades 6-8 traveling teams will slightly overlap with middle school basketball.  More information will come out soon.

Playing Time

Players can expect approximately 1/3 playing time per tournament. Due to game flow players may experience more time in some games and less in others. Player absence, injury or illness can also reduce playing time or as a result of infractions of player expectations.

Additional Parent Volunteers

The Coach may request parents to help out with things such as keeping books during the game or videotaping games.  Parents will also be requested to volunteer for concessions or admissions table in the Bemidji Pride of the North Tournament.  Many programs require up to a $100.00 refundable volunteer fee.  Please be willing to volunteer so we do not have to begin implementing such fees.
