Welcome to ARAA Basketball. We offer programs for students in grades K-12. Our House and Traveling programs give a variety of experiences to meet your child's needs. Every family who participates in our programs 2-12 has a volunteer and fundraising requirement. Both can be bought out during registration. All general questions can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
House basketball is available for students in grades 2-12.
Girls House runs October to December.
Boys and Senior House (grades 9-12) runs December to March .
House basketball is played in the north metro and will consist of 2 practices per week and 1-2 games per week. Games are played at CRMS, AMSA, and RMS (Northpoint Elementary and/or other elementary schools in Blaine and/or Spring Lake Park will be used for 2nd and 3rd grade).
Every family is required to volunteer for 4 hours per player max 8 per family. If hours are not met, there is a financial cost that will be agreed to at registration.
Traveling Basketball is available for boys and girls in grades 3-8. Teams are set based on a tryout format. Traveling basketball is a more competitive program and requires a much greater commitment from both the players and the parents.
Program runs from October through March.
Practices: Are typically 2x per week (Monday-Thursday).
Games: Tournaments are held at other local associations in the metro area, usually about 30-40 min away. Some teams may choose to also do a overnight tourney. There are other financial considerations such as admission fees for spectators, uniform purchase if required, travel to and from tournaments, meals and concessions to take into account.. Teams will play in approximately 10 tournaments throughout the season.
Entrance Fees: At each of these tournaments, there is an gate fee for each person coming to watch. Each tournament decides their own entry fees.
Program ends with MYAS Grade State Tournament in March.
