Developmental Program/Travel Team
Southwest Basketball League offers a developmental program for kids that wish to play at higher level. However, our kids are not just being thrown out to some club team, where in most cases they just sit on the bench and wait for their turn to play.
SBL has created its own travel teams for players 2nd -8th grade that will compete throughout valley/state in tournaments as well as other basketball leagues.
Players will not be placed on travel teams until the league and/or travel coach feels the player is ready.
Travel team basketball is for advanced players that have played the sport for several seaons, but there are a rare exceptions of kids who have never played organized basketball and are ready to play club basketball.
As with all our divisions SBL will make sure kids playing on travel teams will get a fair amount of playing time. Our travel teams play against some of the best teams in the state.
