Traveling League Details 4th - 8th Grade

OMGBA offers a very competitive program for the 4th through 8th grade. The traveling program requires a commitment to the program and other teammates by attending most (if not all) practices and games.

IMPORTANT Traveling Information
Once a player is chosen for a travel team, an additional tournament fee is collected over and above the house fees that are paid at the time of registration.   This tournament fee also covers admissions into most tournaments.   IF YOU MAKE A TRAVEL TEAM, YOU MUST PLAY ON THAT TEAM. 

For 4th grade boys (up to 4 full year teams), 4th grade girls (up to 2 full year teams), & 5th - 8th grade (All Teams), These teams will play a full-season travel schedule with 8-10 weekend tournaments including the OMGBA tournament in November.  Practices will begin after tryouts with two practices per week throughout the season.  Girls’ seasons end in late February, boys’ seasons end in early March.

OMGBA also uses the DIBS Volunteer System for volunteer requirements for 4th - 8th Grade Traveling basketball families. For more information see the "Volunteer Info" tab .

2024-25 4th Grade Travel Changes: Boys (up to 4 full year teams), Girls (up to 2 full year teams); No half-year teams. Girls' seasons end in late February, boys’ seasons end in early March.  We will no longer have any half-year travel teams.  All 4th grade participants will play either travel with tryouts in September, or in the House program.  OMGBA will make a determination on how many 4th grade travel teams to form based on registration/tryout numbers and the ability level of the participants who attend tryouts.

Traveling Commitment
Anyone wishing to tryout for a traveling position must attend both days of tryouts for their grade and gender. As there are limited spots on traveling teams, not everyone that attends a tryout will make a team. There is no "playing up" or "playing down".

Teams play games in tournaments sponsored by organizations around the Twin Cities. Games are played on Friday, Saturday, and Sundays at Twin Cities facilities and sometimes at out state facilities. There is generally two practices a week (depending on school availability). Practices are 1 to 2 hours long and can be held on any week day night from 5:30pm to 10:00pm (9:00pm end time for 4th - 5th Grade). Coaches may be able to pick up an additional practice each week when available, but those practices are optional for players.
