Girls In-House (Grades 2 - 8)

Registration for the 2021/2022 Girls Basketball Season is now closed.

The Blaine Youth Girls Basketball Board is excited to get the new season underway! 

Girls In-House Program Information

Our in-house program is part of the Twin Cities Youth Basketball League. 

Games are hosted by the communities in the league but most of our games are played at Blaine, Anoka, and Spring Lake Park schools.

Teams will have three days of basketball per week consisting of two games and 1-2 practices. If games are double headers on Saturdays they will have two practices that week. If they have two games on two different days they will only have one practice that week.

In-house practices start the week of October 4th and games will start on October 16/17th. There will be no games Oct. 23/24 (MEA) and Nov. 27/28 (Thanksgiving). 

There are a total of 12 games plus the end-of-year tournament in mid-December (no tournament for 2nd grade). 

Game Schedules and Rules Coming Soon

In-House vs. Traveling

A question we get asked frequently is what are the differences between our in-house program and our traveling program. Here are the key differences between these programs.

  • In-house is less expensive
  • In-house has a much shorter season (2 month season versus 5 month season in traveling)
  • In-house is less competitive
  • In-house is great for a beginner player or one playing other sports during the winter
  • In-house is a great place to "dip your toes in the water" to see if the player likes it before committing to traveling
  • In-house requires less driving and commuting as games are primarily played in Blaine, Coon Rapids, or Anoka; traveling games can be played throughout the Twin Cities metro area

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).
  • There are typically 2-3 teams in 3rd and 4th grades
  • Coaches pick a couple of interested players from each in-house team to form travel lite teams.
  • Two practices per week
  • Teams play in 2-3 tournaments - the Blaine tournament being one of them.
  • A volunteer check is required but NOT CASHED. Once the volunteer hours are provided (see below) we return your check.
  • Parents are required to volunteer 6 hours during our home tournament in February.
