Due to the learning model change for Luverne School District, there will be no Youth or Middle School Basketball during the month of November.
The Luverne Basketball Association was created to help develop and grow the students of Luverne through the game of basketball. The LBA provides opportunities for students to participate in practices, leagues, and tournaments throughout the year.
Our 3rd,4th, 5th, and 6th grade teams, both boys and girls, will all participate in the Cardinal League. The Cardinal League allows all participants equal playing time throughout the 12 game season. All games are played in Luverne. The 5th and 6th grade teams will also have the opportunity to play in the Luverne Invitational Tournament which is sponsored by the Luverne Basketball Association and Luverne Community Education. Our 4th-6th graders also have the opportunity to play traveling basketball. Our traveling basketball teams will go to area tournaments and this will provide a more competitive environment for those who wish to compete. Playing time in traveling basketball is decided on by the coach and nothing is guaranteed.
Our 7th and 8th graders have the opportunity to play school basketball, however, once the school season is over the LBA sponsors traveling tournaments and practices to give our athletes more experience and competition.
The LBA also plans and organizes our High School summer tournaments and camps for our older athletes to continue to enjoy and get better at the game of basketball.
Throughout the year the LBA plans and participates in fundraisers so that we can keep the cost of our programs low so that all students in Luverne can enjoy basketball. Please come out to support our programs and thank you for visiting our website.
