4th Travel Basketball


Boys and Girls
All 3rd graders selected through our tryout process will be part of our in-house Player Development Program.  The 4th grade program will offer our in-house 3v3 Player Development Program and a one 4th Grade 5 v 5 Travel team.  All 4th graders will tryout.  4th graders ready for the inter-township play will be selected for a 5v5 team.  4th graders not yet ready for inter-township play will particpate in our Player Development Program.

After registering for tryouts on the MLBA website, players attend their designated tryouts. Evaluators select players best suited to learn and develop in the program. All players selected to participate in the league receive email notification to accept their place on the team roster and pay their required league fee.

All players will attend a weekly skills session with Coach Steve Brodzinski, a professional basketball skills coach and founder of Maximum Hoops Player Development. "Coach B" has been part of our organization for years, working with players at all levels and focusing on our youngest players to establish a head start and firm foundation of skill development.

As the season begins, players will attend a weekly practice sessions where they will work with a team coach focusing on basketball game concepts such as: spacing, moving without the ball, proper man-to-man defensive rotations, screening, etc. Teaching game concepts will build on the skills that Coach B will teach throughout the season.

3-on-3 GAME PLAY:
In January and February, all players will compete in weekly 3-on-3 games, where they will get the opportunity to compete and implement the skills and concepts they develop throughout the season. The 3-on-3 format forces each player to be a more active part of the game; increasing the amount of times a player touches the ball, producing more meaningful spacing and movements, and making sure each player is directly involved in game play.


1. The season will run from mid-November through the beginning of March. 3-on-3 games will not start until January.

2. From November through December, there will be a total of two (2) events per week.

3. From January through February, 3-on-3 games will always be played on the weekends.  Games will last between 90 minutes to 2 hours. There will also be one (1) additional skill practice Monday thru Saturday – the times of such skill practices could vary week-to-week.

4. We will not practice or play during the Holiday break (approximately December 24th to January 1st).

5. Required to purchase a MLBA pinnie



4th - 8th Grade Travel Basketball Program

Boys and Girls

After registering for tryouts on the MLBA website, players attend their designated tryouts. Independent evaluators select players after two tryout sessions. All players selected to participate in the league receive email notification to accept their place on the team roster and pay their required league fee.

1.     The travel teams will participate in games and tournaments throughout the South Hills Area.  

2.     One team for each of the 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th grades will be selected to participate in the classification (A) and will consist of the top players at the tryouts as selected by the evaluators for each grade.  This is the Division I team.

3.     The other team at the 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th grade levels, if formed, will participate in the second highest classification (B).  This is the Division II team.

4.     With respect to 4th grade, if there are enough participants, we will select two teams with the talent level divided as equally as possible.  Both 4th grade teams will be placed in an appropriate division.

5.     Coaches for the traveling team will be selected by the Commissioner and the Assistant Commissioners after the tryouts are completed.

The travel season runs November through March and requires a substantial time commitment from each player.  Usually, two to three practices a week and a game.  If a player is not able to make playing travel basketball a priority because of other commitments during such time period, the player should not try out in order to allow other players the opportunity to participate.

7. Required to purchase MLBA uniform.
