What does the Travel Basketball Program entail?

The MYSA Travel Basketball Program is a competitive program that builds team and individual skills for taking the next steps into their school program. 

Practices: Typically, two weekday evening practices and one weekend practice for the month of October. Once games start in November, teams drop-down to two weekday evening practices. Practice length is between 1-1/2 to 2 hours all season and are typically held at Metamora Grade School.

Games: All teams will start playing games in November & continue through the end of February. Each team will participate in at least 3 local tournaments and will have the opportunity to participate in one overnight tournament (The kids love it, but we leave the decision up to each individual team’s coaches and parents). At least 1/3 of the game schedule will be played at Metamora Grade School. The remaining games are typically within 30 minutes of Metamora.

3rd Grade Level – 18-23 guaranteed games
4th Grade Level – 20-25 guaranteed games
5th Grade Level – 25-30 guaranteed games
6th Grade Boys – TBD games (Before school season)
6th Grade Girls – TBD games (After school season)
(All teams could play more depending on tournament success)

If your child loves basketball, is looking for a more competitive opportunity than In-House, and/or is wanting more gym time than In-House, the MYSA Travel Basketball Program is a great option for your child.
