Teams will typically have 2 practices a week in District 191 schools. Practices are between 1 and 2 hours in length. All practice schedules will be available on each team's web page after teams are determined. Sometimes gyms will be shared with another team.
Traveling teams are tournament only teams and will compete in 9-10 tournaments from the end of October to early March. It averages about 2 tournaments a month, with a slightly heavier load in January/February. The majority of the tournaments are within an hour of Burnsville. At least one of the tournaments will be held out of town and may require a hotel stay.
Most tournaments guarantee 3 games, but teams could play more/less than this. Most often games are held on Saturday and Sunday, but some do have Friday evening games as well. Some tournaments may charge a daily admission fee for spectators ($5-$10 per person). Players and coaches do not have to pay. Some tournaments may charge a team gate fee for spectator. Gate fees or entry fees are the responsibility of teams/parents.
All teams will play in the MYAS Grade State Tournament in early March.
Teams have the option of playing in additional tournaments, funded at their own cost. Please inform the
