TRAVEL BASKETBALL

Improve basketball skills in a competitive environment

Travel Basketball

LMVSC Travel Basketball is offered to players looking to develop higher level basketball skills in a competitive environment. LMVSC gives players with an advanced skill level the chance to participate in the Fairfax County Youth Basketball League (FCYBL).  Participation in travel basketball is limited primarily to the winter season.

The travel program requires a greater time commitment from participants for practices and games.  Teams typically practice twice a week with 1-2 games per week.  Games are generally played at local Fairfax County schools with some games in Arlington and Loudoun County.

Practices start towards the end of October, while games typically start in late November and end in early March.  Open Gyms will start on or after September 6, 2022.  The schedule can be found below once it has been finalized.  Open Gyms are basketball sessions run by our travel coaches prior to tryouts.  During these sessions, the players will run through drills and play in scrimmages as determined by the relevant coaches.  The purpose of Open Gym is to familiarize the players with the coaches and to get the players ready for tryouts.  Tryouts will officially start on or around October 4, 2022.

Prior to attending Open Gym or Tryouts, you must register your player.  Registration will be available no later than September 1, 2022.  Once you register to attend Open Gyms, you will not have to register separately for tryouts.  Attending Open Gym does not obligate your player to attend tryouts.  It is during the Open Gym period that your player may decide whether or not to tryout for the applicable travel team.  If you’d like more information, you can contact Annemarie McGavin at mcgavindob@lmvsc.org.
