LNGBA Traveling Basketball
LNGBA Girl's Traveling Basketball adheres to the philosophy that players having more advanced skills should be given the opportunity to enhance their abilities under the best conditions possible. We believe that the best conditions exist when a more challenging and therefore more competitive environment is created. We believe that competition against players of equal ability is healthy for the girls physically and mentally and that the girls will grow as they strive to overcome these greater challenges.
Our goal is the following:
Development of a positive self-esteem. That each girl feels good about themselves and can be proud of the effort they've given.
Development of well-balanced mental strength. That each person has a positive mental approach in handling the rewards of success, as well as the correct mental approach and strength to handle the emotional feelings associated with a setback.
Teach the girls to work together as a team to accomplish goals such as, playing at competitive level, develop leadership, create friendships, and HAVE FUN!
LNGBA Girl's Traveling Basketball serves grades 4th through 8th, preferably 2 teams per level, with 8 - 10 players per team. The season runs from late-October to mid-February. There will usually be 2 practices per week and approximately 7 to 10 tournaments played, with each tournament being a minimum of 3 games.
All tournaments are all in nearby communities with the exception of one overnight tournament near the end of the season - usually Rochester, MN. The Traveling Director sets up all tournaments for the traveling basketball season. Parents are required to help out with the traveling program in one capacity or another.
We want the girls to develop the habit of thinking as a winner ("I can", "Never give up", etc.) and working hard to win. In the end, we want them to handle winning graciously, and to accept losing with strength.
Traveling players are also encouraged to come and support the Panthers during the varsity season, so each traveling player is admitted free to all Senior High home games.
