Winter Travel 2019-20 4th Grade - 8th Grade

The Shakopee Boys Basketball Association provides opportunities for youth in Grades 4 to 8 to participate in travel basketball.  We do allow 3rd Grade Players to try-out for 4th Grade Travel.   

Players must live or be open enrolled in the Shakopee School District to register.  

 Traveling Basketball is a competitive basketball program. Four Travel Teams per grade level will be formed, if enough players register. Participants should attend both evaluations sessions.  Team selection is based on skill level.  Game participation will be at the discretion of the coaching staff.  Teams will participate in approximately 2-3 weekend tournaments per month, from November thru March, including the state tournament. Practices will be held twice a week at various school locations.  Game uniforms will be provided but remain the property of the Shakopee Boys Basketball Association.  Parents are responsible for all transportation.  If your player does not make a team, a $100 refund will be returned to you.  Registrations will be handled online, 2019-20 fee: $125

An Additional Travel Team fee of $275 will be due prior to the first Team Practice.

Registrations will not be accepted at the Shakopee Community Center Front Desk.

Travel Team Evaluations will be held on Saturday, October 5th and Sunday, October 6th at the Shakopee High School.  Players are required to attend both evaluations.

Financial Aid/Assistance

To achieve our goal of allowing more boys the opportunity to play basketball, the SBBA Board of Directors has developed a Financial Aid program.  This ensures that any boy, regardless of financial situation, will have the opportunity to play basketball. 

The SBBA Basketball Financial Program details are the following:

  • For ALL Programs: SBBA will reduce fees by 50%-100% of the full cost of the registration fee, (including the Travel fee when applicable), if the player is a recipient of a free or reduced school lunch. 
  • As part of the registration process, there will be a checkbox to be marked and a code to be entered if the player has requested financial aid. 

Steps to applying for Financial Aid:  Parents requesting financial aid for the program should:

  • Register for financial assistance: Click Here
  • Include your free/reduced verification letter in the registration
  • You will only need to submit the verification letter one time per school year.
  • Allow 1-2 business days to receive a code to use during checkout for the program registration.

The following is not covered by financial aid:

  • A $100 check to be used as deposit requiring parents to work their designated shifts at the SBBA Basketball Tournament needs to be provided to the Travel Director on or before the first day of the travel evaluations. 
  • If the parents decline to help at the SBBA Tournament, the $100 will be used to reimburse the SBBA for the hiring of tournament workers. Deposit checks from players whose parents work their assigned shifts will be destroyed.
