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).  This is a great opportunity for those players looking to play basketball in high school, especially 8th graders!

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 at the week of October 23, 2023, while games typically start in late November and end in early March.  Open Gyms will start on or after September 11, 2023.  The schedule can be found below.  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 October 2, 2023.

Prior to attending Open Gym or Tryouts, you must register your player.


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. If you’d like more information, you can contact Tom Fitzpatrick, LMVSC Director of Basketball, at
