Girls Traveling Program Information

Travel basketball is designed to give girls in 4th-8th grade the opportunity to play against stronger competition and requires a greater commitment of time and effort. The travel season runs from October to the MYAS State Tournament in early March. Teams will usually practice two nights a week at various gyms throughout the area. Most teams will compete in 8-12 weekend tournaments. Tournaments will be within the metro area with the exception of one overnight out of town tournament. 

Team Formation
Tryouts will be held in mid September. Following tryouts teams will be assigned with 8-10 players depending on participants as well as skill level. The number of teams at each grade will be determined by the number of participants and skill level as well. 

6-Hour Volunteer Commitment
Parents of all travel players are expected to volunteer 6 hours during the Blaine Youth Girls Tournament which will be held February 16-17. In addition to the registration fee,  a volunteer check for $150 will be collected. Checks will not be cashed until the end of the season and ONLY IF you do not fulfill your 6-hour volunteer commitment. We do not want to cash your check! We need volunteers so our goal is to get your time - not your money!

Traveling Fees (2018-19 season)
Traveling Registration Fee: $350
Fundraising Fee: $100 (see details below)
Full Uniform: $82
Total Fees: $532

Fundraising Fees

Traveling players pay a required $100 fundraising fee with their registration.  The fundraising fee covers 20 Raffle tickets, which can be sold to recoup your fee. 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).
