The Mpls 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.
Youth Nights are a great way for families & players to check out local high school basketball games and watch former Mpls Lakers players battle each other. Wear your Mpls Lakers gear & get in free. Check dates, times & matchups
