Travel Program

Belmont Travel Basketball - Overview 2024-25

The BYBA Travel Program (Belmont Travel Basketball), is for players in grades 4 through 8 seeking a higher level of commitment and competition, playing in a competitive league against teams from other towns. Travel teams generally have 1-2 practices per week with 1 to 2 games on the weekends.

Register for 2024-25 Travel Basketball HERE. Registration is open from June 1st through mid-July. Travel coaches can register HERE.

In order to run an effective Travel program and maximize the number of players in the program, both players and parents should recognize that “Travel Basketball” requires a significantly higher commitment level than the In-Town program. 

Players who cannot fully commit to the travel program and will have competing priorities over the winter should register for our In-town program. 

All travel players are automatically registered to play on an In-Town team, although it is understood that there may be conflicts from time-to-time with the Travel program. 

If your travel player would like to Opt-out of the In-town basketball season, please contact info@belmontyouthbasketball.com before October 15th. 

The cost of the In-town program is included in the Travel Fee, and does not change if your child decides to opt-out.

Travel Basketball requires a commitment from players and parents to attend practices and games. Because rosters are small, teams are disrupted if players are unable to make the necessary commitment. Players who routinely miss practices or games may realize less playing time during games. 

Basketball should be your child’s primary sports commitment during the winter season.

If you have constraints and are not able to fully commit to Travel Basketball as describled on this page but still want to play, please let us know so we can properly place your child on the right team. This will make it easier then having to move players during the season.
