The Minneapolis Lakers is a non-profit 501 (C) 3, that was established to provide traveling basketball programs for boys and girls 4th-8th grade, who live in and/or attend school in Minneapolis. Our program is sanctioned by MYAS.
Our goal is to aid in the development of youth basketball skills, promote teamwork and sportsmanship while having fun playing the game of basketball. We provide skill appropriate experiences for boys and girls, and are governed by a volunteer board that provides direction and oversight for the organization’s activities.
Our mission to provide basketball opportunities for boys and girls that live in or go to school in Minneapolis is unwavering but with the risks of COVID-19 we now do so with increased focus on the safety of our players and the health of our community. In order to have a successful season, we will need great cooperation and communication to keep our players safe. We are staying informed by science and following resources from the Minnesota Department of Health. We are also monitoring the guidance from the Minnesota State High School League and Minnesota Youth Athletic Services. We are also watching and learning from the summer AAU programs to identify the protocols they are using to keep their players healthy. The health and safety of our players is our biggest priority as we look to mitigate the risks associated with conducting a season during the COVID-19 pandemic. Read more
