There will be three mandatory tryout sessions held on September 13th, 16th and 20th. The ONLY possible excuses for not participating in EACH tryout session are 1) an injury or 2) a previously scheduled trip which has been noted at the time of registration. Any conflicts with tryouts must be conveyed to and approved by the Tryout Director before the beginning of tryouts. We strongly encourage injured players to attend each tryout session.

Tryouts will be held at Minnetonka High School at the following times. All players should enter and check in via the West Gym.

There will be a meeting for parents of 4th graders and any player new to travel basketball at 4:30 on Sunday, September 13 at the High School.  The optional meeting will cover the expectations, format and commitment of travel basketball.

 Players should bring their own basketball to tryouts (28.5" for 4th-6th grade, 29.5" for 7th and 8th grade), a water bottle and wear clothing that is not printed with the player's name or indicates participation in MBBA or other travel basketball teams in the past (e.g., no MBBA shooting shirts or "Tournament Champion" t-shirts).

7th and 8th graders (13U) trying out for travel baseball with MBA should participate in the MBA last name A-K sessions (irrespective of your actual last name) in order to be able to tryout for both.

The MBBA Pre-Tryout Skills Clinics with the Timberwolves Basketball Academy (4th—5th Graders) and 43 Hoops Basketball Academy (6th—8th Graders) will be held on September 8 and 10 for players participating in our travel team tryouts.  Players who want to participate in the clinic must register by clicking on the Register button above. The clinic schedule is as follows:
