Girls Traveling Registration Information

REGISTRATION FEES
4th - 8th Grade Traveling: $395
There will be a $25 late fee if you register after September 15th

 

THERE WILL BE NO $100 FUNDRAISING FEE THIS SEASON!!!

 


We are offering a payment plan for those families that wish to break this registration into 3 payments.  Sports Engine will provide you this option at check-out, with $160 due at time of registration, $117.50 due on October 15th, and $117.50 due on November 15th.

There will be a $25 late fee charged if you register AFTER September 15th.

 

If your registered traveling player is not offered a roster spot on a traveling team after try outs and you elected to pay in full, you will be refunded $235 of the traveling registration.  If you selected the payment plan,  future payments will be cancelled.  The player will then be placed on an in-house team. 

 

We cannot guarantee we will have an in-house team for grades 7-8.  If we don't have enough players to form a combined 7th and 8th grade in-house team, you will be refunded the full $395 and players will be encouraged to consider the Andover or Coon Rapids in-house programs.

 

UNIFORMS

 

All 4th grade travel players and players new to Blaine youth basketball will need to purchase a full uniform.  

 

We will be using the same uniforms as last season.  You will need at least one jersey and one pair of shorts.  If your uniform still fits you will not need to purchase one this year, however you can purchase shorts or jerseys individually if you need a different size.  A full uniform is typically around $85.  We will have uniforms to try on during the skills night and tryouts.  Uniforms MUST be ordered by late September in order to get them in time for our first tournament - there will be a separate registration for traveling uniforms (available after tryouts).

 

ELIGIBILITY
Eligibility for a player is determined by the school they attend (or would attend if they are home schooled or attending a private school).  Only players that attend school in the Blaine Area Cluster are automatically eligible to play for the Blaine Youth Basketball.  It is also assumed that the player will attend Blaine High School in 9th grade.  This encompasses the geographic area as determined by the School District. If you do not meet these eligibility requirements, you must receive a release from your ‘home association’ before you can play for Blaine – we will do our best to identify these situations during the initial registration.

REQUIRED DOCUMENTS 
All Blaine traveling teams will play in the MYAS State Tournament in March. Each player is required to submit proof of grade level, resident address, and date of birth/age. Your head coach, or team coordinator, will collect these required forms prior to the State Tournament.

SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM
Scholarships are available for players that receive free or reduced price meals at school.  Proof of this includes completion of a scholarship form and a letter from the School District designating the player for free or reduced meals.

Please complete the scholarship application form provided below and email it in advance of completing your online registration. You will then be given a scholarship discount code to use when completing registration. Please email the application to: girls@blaineyouthbasketball.com 


6-Hour Volunteer Commitment

Traveling families are required to submit a volunteer check for $150 and have a volunteer requirement to help at our home tournament on February 13-14, 2021. We ask parents to commit 6 hours of volunteer time during the tournament. This is per family not per player so if you have more than one player in the traveling program you will only need to provide 6 hours of your time.

 

We will only cash the volunteer check if the 6 hours of volunteer time isn't fulfilled. WE DO NOT WANT TO CASH YOUR CHECK! We need help from every traveling family to run our home tournament so your time is more important to us than your money! Once the volunteer commitment has been met we shred and dispose of the $150 volunteer check collected at the beginning of the season - usually at the first practice. 


Girl's Traveling Apparel

Warmups, shooting shirts, and spirit wear for the 2020-21 traveling season will be available through an online store and will be communicated on or before the Traveling Team Parent Meeting.

 

Purchases will need to be made by late September in order to ensure delivery prior to the first tournament in early November. 


Referral Program

If you refer someone new to any of our programs (K-1, in-house, or traveling) we'll send you a $25 referral check once the referred player has registered.
