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 minimal games in Arlington and Loudoun County.

The travel season typically starts in late November and ends in early March.  At this time we assume that the upcoming 2021-22 season will be held as it has been prior to COVID with the same approximate dates.  The Open Gym schedule is listed 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 in October.

Prior to attending Open Gym or Tryouts, you must register your player here.  Additionally, your player must be pre-screened for COVID prior to attending each Open Gym and Tryout.  If you’d like more information, you can contact Annemarie McGavin at mcgavindob@lmvsc.org.
