The basic skills and drills taught are the foundation of becoming a solid basketball player. Time, effort, and commitment each player makes to themselves and their game create what type of player they want to become.

Additional fundraising tickets can be purchased to help offset your costs even more.  Fundraising fees are per family (not per athlete and there is a $100 max. per family). 


In-House vs. Traveling

  • Less expensive
  • Less time (2 month season versus 5 month season in traveling)
  • Less competitive
  • May be better for a beginner player or one playing other sports during the winter
  • May be a good trial to see if the player likes it before committing to traveling
  • Less driving/commuting as everything is in Blaine or Coon Rapids

Travel Lite

If your daughter enjoyed the in-house season and wants to keep playing, consider our travel lite program! This program is for in-house players that want to extend their basketball season and get a feel for the traveling experience. Here are the highlights of the program:

  • Starts at the end of the in-house season (mid-December) and goes until the Blaine tournament (mid-February).
  • Cost of program is $100
  • There are typically 2 teams - one in 3rd and one in 4th
  • Coaches pick a couple of interested players from each in-house team to form travel lite teams.
  • One practice per week
  • Teams play in 2-3 tournaments - the Blaine tournament being one of them.
